Ole Miss Cruises To NIT Opening-Round Win | OleMissSports.com
The Rebels cruised to victory last night in front of a
capacity crowd at the Tad Pad. Terrico White led the team offensively, scoring 27 while Chris Warren scored 16. Quoth Coach Kennedy with regards to 'Rico's performance:
I thought he was aggressive and it's always helpful to make shots early because they stay aggressive ... I would like to see that every night, but maybe he's not ready to do that every night. You forget that he's a sophomore and we want him to approach like that every night because he's certainly got the ability to do something.
No shit, coach. And, let's be frank: this is basketball. Sophomores can excel in college basketball. Hell, freshmen can easily excel in hoops (exhibit A: Kentucky). Terrico should have been playing like this all season. I like you, coach, I really do. But dang, you really should have lit a fire under him months ago.
You're welcome, RolePlayer.
Willis Wins Butkus Award As Collegian And Pro | OleMissSports.com
I guess I wasn't really aware that the Butkus award was also given to NFL 'backers but, regardless, Patrick Willis has become the first person to win said award both as a collegiate athlete at Ole Miss and a professional baller out in San Francisco. Congratulations to PWillie who not only drops the kaboom-hammer on opponents, but also loves the kids.
March 17 Regional Projections | Rivals
Rivals thinks we're hosting a regional which could include Coastal Carolina, ECU, and Austin Pee. I'd like that. We're not currently projected as a national seed (surprise!) and have our regional paired with Clemson's.
