    Jags have a couple of key players suspended. Maybe things will balance out tonight.

  2. djrebel Says:

    Malcolm White just picked up his second foul. 17:21 left in the first. Jags lead 4-2 and are at the line.

  3. djrebel Says:

    South Al’s Brandon Davis is challenging the bigs and getting them in foul trouble. Cranston just picked up his first. Jags up 7-6 with the ball.

  4. djrebel Says:

    There’s a timeout now at 15:44. Rebels have just one field goal. Huertas and Terrico White have missed open 3-point looks. They need to do a better job of stopping Davis’ moves to the goal.

    Jags 7, Rebels 6, 15:44

  5. djrebel Says:

    Terrance Henry scores with a loose ball after Terrico White misses a dunk. Rebels up 10-7.

  6. djrebel Says:

    Cranston hits a 3 then commits his second foul. Rebs up 13-9, 14:28.

  7. djrebel Says:

    USA time out at 13:54. Ole Miss bigs White and Cranston both have two fouls, and both were kind of ticky-tack on the second calls. Cranston remains in the game for now.

    Backcourt presently is Terrico White, Huertas and Warren.

  8. djrebel Says:

    Time out at 10:57. Rebels lead 20-15. They had opened up a nine-point lead at 18-9, but SA is sticking with the zone, and the Rebels aren’t shooting them out of it. Warren hit his first shot but hasn’t done much since. Just missed an open 3 and a floater before that.

  9. djrebel Says:

    Rebs up 27-17. A 3 by Graham, a bucket low by Henry with an assist from Warren, then Huertas tips in a Warren miss after Warren gets a steal on the defensive end.

    9:00 left in the half.

  10. djrebel Says:

    White just picked up his third foul. Cranston, with two, is back in the game. Rebs up 27-19 at 7:21.

  11. djrebel Says:

    Rebels still perplexed by this zone and missing 3s from the longer line this year. Terrico White just stepped inside the arc and hit a 15-footer. 29-19.

  12. djrebel Says:

    Terrico White has gotten some things done with a drive and dish, and Warren’s had a couple of buckets. Rebels up 36-23 with 3:48 left in the half.

  13. djrebel Says:

    Rebs are shooting 40 percent and have warmed up from the arc at 33 percent. Jags at 43 percent from the floor.

  14. david Says:

    see any football players out there supporting the bball team?

  15. djrebel Says:

    Back-to-back 3s by Graham and Huertas and Rebels up 42-23 with 1:57 left.

  16. djrebel Says:

    Just got a tech called on SA coach Ronnie Arrow. One may not be enough for him. Huertas hits two, no Graham at the line … for the play that got Arrow all riled up to begin with … and he hits 2. Rebels up 46-27 and 12-for-12 from the FT line.

  17. djrebel Says:

    HALF: Ole Miss 46, SOuth Al 27

  18. Jay Stokes Says:

    rebs are sounding good tonight. they need to keep up the intensity in the second half to avoid another nail biter like last year. we should be able to relax when the last five minutes hit.

  19. djrebel Says:

    Numbers at the half:

    Ole Miss 37.8 percent FG, 37.5 percent 3 pt FG.

    Ole Miss 20 rebounds, SA 20 rebounds.

    Huertas 3-for-8 from the floor, 2-for-7 3s, 12 points. Graham 10 points, 2-2 floor, Warren 9 points, 3 assists. Terrico White 2 points, 3 assists.

  20. djrebel Says:

    David, haven’t seen any football players out here. Usually Nutt sits off to the side but haven’t seen him tonight.

  21. djrebel Says:

    Cranston just picked up his third foul. Malcolm is back in. Both with three. Rebels 55-43 at 17:29.

  22. djrebel Says:

    Jags have scored on five of six possessions. 55-38 at 16:13.

  23. djrebel Says:

    Jags have scored on five of six possessions. 55-38 at 16:13.

  24. djrebel Says:

    8 points on 3 trips for Ole Miss. 2 3-pointers by Huertas, the second after a nice pump fake to get the defender to leap. Then Warren leads the break with a loose ball and throws a lob behind him to the trailing Holloway for the dunk.

    Rebels up 63-38 in a timeout with 14:40 to play.

  25. djrebel Says:

    Palming the ball has been called at least 4 times tonight, times when it would not have been called last year. Greater emphasis on that and the players will have to adjust. Rebels up 66-46 at 12:18.

  26. djrebel Says:

    Henry hits a pair and Rebels are 18-for-18 from the free throw line. Not much defense going on right now, as both teams are scoring almost at will.

    Jags hit two free throws, and its 74-55 at 9:17.

  27. djrebel Says:

    Graham just scored a nice put-back with a tough rebound in traffic. He’s scored 14 points in a game he didn’t know he’d start 24 hours ago. The Rebels can replace Polynice’s scoring. The question is who will replace his defense, and that answer won’t come until deeper into the schedule against West Virginia or Louisville maybe.

    Rebels lead 80-59 at 6:42.

  28. djrebel Says:

    South Al is up to 48 percent field goal shooting.

  29. djrebel Says:

    Just like last year, Jags aren’t going away. A 25-point lead is now 16, and South is at the line when play resumes. It’s 82-66 with 3:24 left.

  30. Jaxrebsteve Says:

    How’s the crowd for the game? Sounds like an entertaining game if you like to see the Rebs score some points. I always have felt that the fans who skip these games before January miss out on learning about the guys who don’t start but that may be key if there are injuries or slumps later in the year.
    I wish I lived in Miss. so I could see the games in person.

  31. djrebel Says:

    FINAL: Ole Miss 89, South Alabama 71

  32. djrebel Says:

    Jax, crowd was listed at 5,830, and I think that was about right, but it was kind of lethargic. Not good attendance at all in the student section.

    PA, you looked good there at center-court!
