Ole Miss opens its basketball season Friday night against Mississippi Valley State with almost all of its players available.
Freshman guard Derrick Millinghaus sat out the 77-62 win over Montevallo with an academic issue. Junior college transfer forward Jason Carter missed the exhibition for a violation of team rules, Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said.
Millinghaus will be ready to go against Valley, but Carter remains suspended.
Millinghaus, a fast, aggressive point guard, is expected to offer a change of pace as a reserve in the rotation.
While the Rebels have returning starters at the 4 and 5 spots, Carter provides something different, Kennedy says, as a legitimate 3-point threat with a 6-8, 238-pound frame.
