Notebook: Rebels hope for NIT bid

Ole Miss will learn Sunday evening whether it will receive an NIT bid.

Andy Kennedy did not specifically address the NIT but did not sound like he necessarily expects a bid.

When asked about the standing ovation for Stefan Moody — by all fans in the gym — Kennedy said: “He’s a special player. You try not to heap too much praise on one of your current players when you’re in the grind, but now that we’re done and you look back, obviously he’s the most dynamic play-maker in the history of our program, most certainly in my 10 years.”

Players remain hopeful.

Here’s Sebastian Saiz:

    Too bad Ole MIss not making it to the NCAA Dance but NIT better than setting at home and watching. Maybe they should shell out a little of that football prize gifts to the basketball players. .Even when I was a youngster in Oxford Ole miss never put much into the basketball program then. I remember back in those days some of the football players playing on the baseball and Basket ball teams.

      Tough break for Florida losing to Texas A&M. I like Coach Michael White. He was a great point guard for the Rebels and has done a terrific job in his first season with the Gators.
      Ole Miss had a stretch where they were without BOTH Moody & Saiz…ergo, they lost some games they could’ve/should’ve won.
      Florida is on ”the bubble” and might also have to settle for the NIT. We’ll find out 2morrow.
      IF the Rebels get matched up with Dayton in the 1st round…I’m going to S-C-R-E-A-M!!! Just kidding. :))
