Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy didn’t have to look at the stat sheet after Wednesday night’s game to know that Illinois State had just shot the lights out from floor and behind the 3-point arc. About the only thing Kennedy was unsure about was whether the 17 3-pointers the Redbirds made was C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum record or not.
