Rebels rout Fordham

Sparsely attended with an announce crowd of 3,167, Ole Miss defeated Fordham 95-68 to run its record to 11-2 as SEC play begins Wednesday at Tennessee.

Fordham, of the Atlantic 10, dropped to 4-11. It was the final non-conference game for Ole Miss.

Marshall Henderson continued the hot shooting that began for him against East Tennessee State and carried over to the Los Angeles-Hawaii trip by going 7-for-14 from the field, 3-for-8 from 3-point range to lead all scorers with 21 points.

According to the box score, LaDarius White started in place of Nick Williams. They played about the same number of minutes, White with 21 and Williams with 23, White had three points, Williams 11.

Murphy Holloway had a double-double with 15 points and 13 rebounds, and Reggie Buckner had 18 points, eight rebounds and six blocked shots.

Nice offensive game from Derrick Millinghaus, who had 16 points in 20 minutes off the bench. He was 5-for-9 shooting, 3-for-5 from the arc and most importantly had just one turnover.

Millinghaus is a guy who can really help this team if the light comes on and he becomes more consistent.
