Andy Kennedy has grown tired that after nine seasons, he is the one with the most energy or person with the most fire on the bench.
No matter how you slice Wednesday night’s 76-72 loss to Georgia at Tad Smith Coliseum, the Rebels lacked the necessary abilities to close the game out. Ole Miss fell to 9-6 at home this season, a stat that also boggled the mind of Kennedy, who said he has done everything he can to psychologically improve the Rebels’ shooting inside the ‘Tad Pad.’
In the 15 games at home, Ole Miss has shot 45 percent, or better, from the floor in just three of those contests. Kennedy said that 45 percent is a benchmark teams look to shoot each and every game. The Rebels were just 6 of 29 from behind the 3-point arc. Georgia was 11 of 23 from behind the arc.
Here is more from Kennedy following the loss, with some late comments on playing at LSU, the Rebels’ next opponent, on Saturday.
