Ole Miss Falls to Georgia Bulldogs 75-73 in SEC Tournament

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

It was an ugly game that, somehow, stayed close.

In an ugly, back-and-forth affair last night in the Georgia Dome, the Ole Miss Rebels fell to the Georgia Bulldogs 75-73 in the SEC Men's Basketball Tournament. Much to the delight of nobody, the game was significantly marred and slowed by touchy officiating, by which there were a stunning 51 personal fouls called between the two teams. Sebastian Saiz and Dwight Coleby both fouled out, while Jarvis Summers, Aaron Jones, and Anthony Perez all notched four.

Basically, it became a long, drawn out game of H-O-R-S-E, a game that the Rebs weren't going to win with Marshall Henderson having gone completely cold. Statistically, it was Henderson's worst night as an Ole Miss Rebel. He was only 5-of-21 from the floor and 2-of-16 from beyond the three point arc. Jarvis Summers also struggled from three, missing all four of his attempts and a last-second shot that could have swung the game to the Rebels.

Summers and Henderson scored 26 and 19 points respectively, with Dwight Coleby coming in third on the team with ten. Interestingly, Martavious Newby notched ten rebounds last night, leading the team.

What's next for this team is a bit of a mystery. I'm inclined to believe they'll get an NIT bid and that Andy Kennedy will accept it if offered, but until then we're just in this awful, boring, disappointing limbo of sorts. We want them to keep playing, but then again, do we?

Well, for Marshall Henderson's sake, I guess I do. I would hate for last night to be his final time to troll the shit out of the college basketball watching world.
