For a game that wasn’t going to count in the win and loss category, Ole Miss guard Dundrecous Nelson played Thursday night’s exhibition game against North Alabama like the Lions were the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Nelson was easily the most impressive player on the court at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum in a game that the Rebels won 91-62. The sophomore from Jackson, who took a hard fall in a scrimmage with Arkansas-Little Rock two weeks ago, showed the ability to score points (22) as the Rebels’ shooting guard and distribute (nine assists) as a point guard. Overall, Nelson impressed Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy, who needs him to be one of the main players that replaces the scoring of Chris Warren. (November 4, 2011, Page 10A)

Shortly after the Rebels’ loss to Dayton that eliminated them from the National Invitation Tournament, sophomore Terrico White and junior Eniel Polynice declared for the draft, and sophomore forward Murphy Holloway announced he was going to transfer to be closer to his family.
Add into the mass exodus equation that senior forward DeAundre Cranston graduated and forwards Kevin Cantinol and DeAngelo Riley won’t be returning next season, and it becomes apparent why the Rebels are hoping several newcomers are going to be able to step in and contribute immediately.
During Monday’s Southeastern Conference coaches teleconference, Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy mentioned several newcomers he’s hoping can contribute this upcoming season. (June 30, 2010, Page 8)
