Ole Miss at MSU, tonight at 6, ESPN2 ...
The defense by Terrance Henry against MSU point guard Dee Bost was a big factor in the Rebels' 75-68 win over the Bulldogs in this season's first game Jan. 18 in Oxford. Henry is excited about the opportunity of guarding Bost again, but this time Bost and the Bulldogs know what's coming and have had more time to prepare. Henry's challenge
Another big factor in the Rebels' win was their defense against State's leading scorer and the SEC's leading rebounder, UTEP transfer Arnett Moultrie. Moultrie still had a double-double, but it was a very quiet 10 points and 12 rebounds. With Murphy Holloway tasked with guarding him, Moultrie had only two offensive rebounds and never took over the game. Henry's keeping Bost out of the lane also made things rough for Moultrie, who is eager for a better showing against the Rebels tonight. Moultrie's challenge
