Official box score is here

For the first time this season, the Rebels only won 2 of the four factors, but so convincingly won the most important two, that it more than offset the rebounding and FT edge of NC A&T. The Aggies turned the ball over on nearly 1/3 of their possessions, then failed to shoot 30% eFG% when they did manage to hang on to the ball. Not going to win many games with that effort.

The big story for many in this game was Marshall Henderson, or more precisely, the lack there of. He didn't play much - just 13 minutes - and only attempted 8 shots. Per Andy Kennedy' s press conference, it was a coach's decision based on the box and one defense the Aggies were running. He wanted to be sure the younger guys stayed active before the 2 games in NYC this weekend.

Now the 4-0 Rebels head to New York for the Barclays Center Classic to really find out where they stand. They'll tangle with Georgia Tech Friday at 3:30 CST and then take on either St. John's or Penn State Saturday, depending on how Friday's games go.
