Kansas State 61, Ole Miss 58

It’s not a great Kansas State team, and the Wildcats didn’t play particularly well, but neither did Ole Miss which didn’t translate it’s neutral site aggressiveness from the Barclays Classic into a hostile environment in Manhattan.

Ole Miss played from behind most of the game, grabbed a four-point lead and couldn’t hold it, had a shot for the win at the end. Down by two, Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy chose to go for the win with a 3-point shot from Henderson, who was well-guarded deep behind the arc. He didn’t get legs into his shot, and it was way off the mark.

There was foul trouble for Demarco Cox, and the Rebels were minus-5 on the glass.

Bottom line though is Ole Miss isn’t going to win many games when Henderson shoots as poorly as he did, going just 4-for-18 from the floor, 2-for-13 from 3.

Jarvis Summers kept the Rebels in it in the first half and finished with 18 points. They got very little from Derrick Millinghaus (6 points, 3-for-10 FG), who had been averaging 15 points.

Ole Miss falls to 6-1 and is at home Sunday against No. 13 Oregon.
