In an early look at 2009-2010 preason basketball rankings writers for ESPN, Fox and CBS have Ole Miss ranked 22, 26 and 26 respectively. This comes from noted hoops web surfer Michael White, who is an Ole Miss assistant coach in his day job.
Next season is the season many were looking toward for Ole Miss basketball even before the wave of injuries and the unresolved legal situation of head coach Andy Kennedy.
I'm hearing the the Kennedy situation -- a simple assault charge for allegedly punching a Cincinnati cab driver and the deuling civil cases that resulted -- could be heading for some time of settlement. We'll see. Court date is April 20.
