A huge second half for Stefan Moody. He played just 5 minutes in the first half as he went to the bench early with two fouls.
South Carolina coach Frank Martin said he “wanted to go into the locker room and kiss Andy” for not playing Moody more in the first half.
In the second half Moody had 16 points on 5-for-7 shooting, going 3-for-5 from 3.
The Rebels shot 18-for-22 from the free throw line and were plus-1 on the glass.
Kennedy says players are figuring out roles, and Moody agrees.

The Rebels had a 12-point lead late in the half, but South Carolina got some better looks in the final minutes and knocked down a couple of 3s.
Stefan Moody played less than 5 minutes before picking up his second foul and sitting the rest of the half.
Ole Miss shot just 35.7 percent but was 4-for-7 from 3, two of those by Jarvis Summers, who leads the Rebels with 12 points, though he’s only 3-for-10 from the floor.
