Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy like the aggressive nature his team showed in wins against Georgia Tech and Penn State in Brooklyn. He hopes they can carry that edge from a neutral site to a hostile environment when the Rebels visit Kansas State Thursday.
An NCAA tournament team last year, Kansas State is 4-3. Kennedy says the Wildcats — who were at the Sprint Center in Kansas City with Ole Miss in the NCAAs — have big and athletic players on the wing. K-State has lost to Charlotte, Georgetown and Northern Colorado.
After Manhattan, the Rebels are back home for No. 13 Oregon. The Ducks are 7-0 after Sunday’s 82-61 win over Cal-Poly and has the week off before facing Ole Miss.
