Friday afternoon’s matchup with Lipscomb at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum will be another opportunity for some players to showcase their abilities to coach Andy Kennedy, who is trying hard to figure out a consistent rotation before the team is off for a week prior to a home meeting with Rutgers in the Big East/SEC Challenge.

NEW ORLEANS — In an arena where NBA stars shine on a regular basis, Ole Miss junior guard Nick Williams performed like a professional standout for the Rebels Thursday night.
Williams led the resurgent Rebels to a 68-54 win over Auburn in the first round of the 2012 Southeastern Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament by scoring a career-high 22 points. Williams, who came in averaging just over 10 points a game, was sensational shooting the ball from the field.
