Video Blog: Summers, Rhett talk NCAA First Four win

By John Davis, Oxford Citizen

DAYTON, Ohio. — Ole Miss guard Jarvis Summers and forward MJ Rhett wanted to see the beach in Florida. So they overcame a 17-point deficit at the half to BYU and posted a 94-90 win Tuesday night in the NCAAs First Four that will be remembered for years and years to come.

Rhett was a monster in the second half for the Rebels as he scored 14 of his 20 points. Summers overcame a 1-for-11 shooting performance the first 20 minutes to finish with 11 points and 10 assists. Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy was most pleased with how led the team in the end.

The style of play in the SEC, a more rugged, banging, physical way of playing, ultimately made a huge difference over the course of the game. Ole Miss got more inside baskets, and apart from playing better defense and creating steals, fatigue — the body blows on the Cougars — took away their legs on shots from the floor and field.

Go inside the locker room with these two interviews with Rhett and Summers.
