Notes: Of all the antics from Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson this season, none was more prolific or covered through video than his jersey-pumping in front of the Auburn students at Auburn on Jan. 26. … Henderson continues to lead the SEC in scoring at 19.3 points a game but has made only eight of his last eight of his last 34 3-point attempts (23.5 percent). … Ole Miss is 13-1 at home this season, 5-1 in the SEC. … One more win will give Ole Miss 20 wins for the sixth time under Kennedy. … Only four other SEC coaches have led their teams to 20 wins in six of their first seven seasons at a school. … Ole Miss F Murphy Holloway ranks fourth in the SEC with 10 double-doubles, but his 19 points and 13 rebounds against South Carolina gave him his first double-double since Jan. 19 against Arkansas when he had 15 points and 11 rebounds.

  • The Fightin’ Squiwards will keep it close for most of the game, but as fate would have it another close loss for the “Squids”…..Tigers 58 Squids 53.
