Ole Miss 111, Valley 82

Big Picture: The Rebels improved to 3-0 and will likely be 4-0 heading to Brooklyn after Thanksgiving for a holiday tournament that will include St. Johns, Georgia Tech and Penn State.

Turning Point: The Rebels went on a 16-4 run to build a 54-32 halftime lead. They hit only four of their first 15 field goals but went on to shoot 50 percent for the half and 50.7 percent for the game.

Who’s Your Daddy: Derrick Millinghaus led six Ole Miss players in double figures with a career-high 21 points. Demarco Cox had a double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds.

Of Interest: Marshall Henderson missed his first three shots but went on to shoot 2-for-4 from 3-point range in the first half and 4-for-8 for the game. At times Henderson looked more interested in passing than shooting. He had four assists, tied for the team-high with Martavious Newby.

Next Up: The Rebels are at home against North Carolina A&T Tuesday at 3.
