Rebels add two basketball signees

By John Davis, Oxford Citizen

Ole Miss men’s basketball coach Andy Kennedy has one of the best point guards in the SEC, and several veteran guards on his roster this season. Replacing Jarvis Summers and LaDarius “Snoop” White should be a little easier in the future with the signings of Terrance Davis and Rasheed Brooks.

The duo officially signed with Ole Miss on Wednesday, with their announcements coming this afternoon. The 6-foot-4 Davis, a standout at Southaven, is rated as the No. 127 best player in the nation by Rivals.com. He averaged 21 points, nine rebounds and three steals playing for the Chargers his junior season.

“T.D. is a big time athlete, who has the ability to play either wing position,” Kennedy said in a release. “His physical attributes, coupled with his high-intensity approach, give him a real chance to make an immediate impact in our program.”

Brooks is a junior college shooting guard who currently plays for Southwest Tennessee in Memphis where he started 27 games as a freshman. The 6-6 Brooks shot nearly 43 percent from behind the  3-point arc in his first season with the Saluqis and ranks 20th nationally among JUCO players and seventh among JUCO shooting guards, according to 247 Sports.

He was named the best JUCO player in the state of Tennessee after averaging 12.5 points per game. He chose Ole Miss over West Virginia and Auburn.

“Rasheed is a long, athletic wing who can really extend a defense with his ability to shoot the basketball,” Kennedy said. “He also has a very good understanding of how to play the game, which gives him a chance to immediately contribute to our program next season.”
