It's a Win

As I stated earlier this year this Ole Miss team is not going to blow anybody out of the water. That statement proved to be true tonight as the Rebels defeated New Orleans 85-77. This moves the Rebels to 7-1, their best record since the 2001 season.

The play of the big guys Kenny Williams and Jeremy Parnell helped the Rebels win this one, as they scored 15 and 16 points respectively. Surprisingly the guards of Bam Doyne, Clarence Sanders, and Todd Abernathy struggled to find the basket in the first half. However Doyne did wind up with 16 in the game. I was glad to see Eniel Polynice step up and play tonight. He looked like a pretty good player as he contributed 15. As Trusty and Sparky stated earlier this season we will probably see alot of him this year.

I'm sure many of those that watched the game on CSS, think that this team is miserable and is worse than last years. While I do not think they are the next UNC or Duke, we are an improved team from last year. Tonight was evidence of how Kennedy has brought new talent to the team with the play of Williams and Polynice. Hang with this team it's not going to be pretty but they are going to fight hard and win games.
