Ole Miss rediscovered its outside shooting touch to open the second half and surged away from LSU for a 78-51 victory Saturday.
Versatility and length have been two things Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy and his staff have valued from their players on the basketball court. In Aaron Jones, the Rebels’ latest verbal commitment, the staff has the luxury of getting both important aspects as they continue to keep the program headed in the right direction.
Jones, a 6-foot-9, 197-pounder from Gautier, committed to Kennedy early this week after visiting Ole Miss on his official visit over the weekend. Despite not playing AAU basketball over the summer, Jones was able to garner offers from Mississippi State, Baylor, Memphis, UTEP and considerable interest from Florida, who according to Jones’ coach, Keith McQueen, was prepared to offer once he came on an official visit. That trip to Florida for later in the month was scrapped after Jones saw Oxford. (October 21, 2010, Page 8)
