Final: Ole Miss 80, Northern Arizona 74

Watched this one on TV after getting back from Fayetteville. The Rebels finally got some separation with around eight minutes left. NAU was bothered by the zone during that time. They hit enough 3s to keep it interesting but were cold in that stretch when Ole Miss pulled away. NAU warmed up again and cut the lead to six, but Ole Miss stretched the lead again before the Lumberjacks hit a garbage 3 at the end. The Rebels had a good night at the free throw line hitting 30 of 35 attempts. Jarvis Summers had 22 points. Stefan Moody had 13 but wasn’t very efficient on 2-for-9 shooting. LaDarius White had 12 points. The Rebels (3-1) were plus-15 on the glass. Martavious Newby, M.J. Rhett and Sebastian Saiz each had six rebounds.
