That was never more evident than Tuesday night as Ole Miss defeated Texas Tech 90-87 in two overtimes in the quarterfinals of the National Invitational Tournament.
"There are a lot of things we question. But after 34 games, there's one thing you can't question and that's the resolve of this team," Kennedy said. "I know people will say it's just the NIT, but at this stage when you get down to win or go home, you could see how much it meant to them."
Murphy Holloway converted a three-point play, a layup and bonus free throw, with three seconds left to provide the winning margin for the Rebels (24-10). The win improved Ole Miss to 11-1 in NIT home games and earned a semifinal match against the Illinois-Dayton winner on Tuesday in Madison Square Garden.
