Kentucky 80, Ole Miss 64

The Rebels led early in the first half. They were down two with 17:05 to play after a 3-pointer by Marshall Henderson. Kentucky extended the lead gradually, and the Rebels trailed by eight several times in the second half, the last after Henderson’s last 3-pointer made it 62-54 with 8:14 left.

Though Sebastian Saiz had some promising play, the Rebels didn’t get much done in the way of post scoring (Kentucky 44-24 in the paint) or rebounding (Kentucky 41-26 on the glass).

Henderson led Ole Miss with 16 points. He was 6-for-18 from the field, 4-for-12 from 3. Jarvis Summers and LaDarius White each had 11. Summers was 4-for-13 from the floor, White 4-for-13.

White was the team’s leading rebounder with five, Aaron Jones has four.

Dwight Coleby played 13 minutes, but that was enough to foul out. He had four points, on 2-for-3 shooting, two rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot with no turnovers. When he can stay on the floor longer he’s going to be good.

    Did any one expect any other outcome? Kentucky…with 10 McDonald’s All-Americans…on their home court…22,000 screaming Wildcat fans. Wasn’t going to happen for the Rebels. The Rebels get a chance to heal–somewhat–this Saturday when the Mizzou Tigers come calling. They really need a win on Saturday to keep any chance for post season play.
