Marshall Henderson Breaks SEC 3-Point Streak Record, Rebs Cruise to Victory over Alabama

It was a ho-hum game, with little suspense and even less on the line, but it was a Rebel victory all the same.

Marshall Henderson has made a three-point basket in every Ole Miss game he has played in. That's 61 consecutive games with a trey, if you haven't been counting, a mark which is a new Southeastern Conference record after he made his first three in Ole Miss' 76-67 win over Alabama in Oxford. This streak breaks former Arkansas star Pat Bradley's record which he has held for nearly 13 years, and did it on #WHITEGIRLWEDNESDAY, no less.

With only 13 points on the night, however, Henderson didn't lead the Rebels in scoring. That went to Jarvis Summers, who scored 20 points on top of four rebounds, five assists and a steal. Summer's offensive prowess, coupled with serviceable defensive outings from Aaron Jones and Anthony Perez, made for an Ole Miss attack which was more than enough to dispatch the Tide.

Ole Miss held a double-digit lead for most of the game, with their slimmest lead margin in the second half being six points, and only for a brief while. Really, it wasn't a particularly eventful game. Ole Miss win, but didn't really do anything to benefit their NCAA chances - which, at this point, are so shot that it's a waste of time discussing.
