HOOPS: Impressed with White

02040882 Ole Miss v Auburn
Arkansas coach John Pelphrey, once a candidate for the Ole Miss job, has been impressed with the play of Ole Miss freshman Terrico White, a player he tried to lure to the Razorbacks.

“He’s got a pro body, pro talent, playing multiple positions, then the success he’s had a point guard … I think he’s arguably the best freshman in the league.

To handle the adversity and the responsibility. As a freshman you’re just trying to figure out how to get through practice. You go from having your point guard in place to all of a sudden becoming the leader of the basketball team.I couldn’t be more impressed with him.”

White had 18 points and was 3-for-6 from the arc in the Rebels’ 74-65 win over Arkansas on Jan. 14.

Arkansas’ Courtney Fortson, himself an SEC Freshman of the Year candidate, had 24 points on 10-for-19 shooting in that game.
