Winners on the night included freshman Dwight Coleby, who topped sophomore Anthony Perez in the dunk contest. True freshman guard Janari Joesaar paired with true freshman Shequila Joseph to win the 3-point shootout.

"It is a fun night," Ole Miss men's coach Andy Kennedy said. "I'm appreciative for everybody that works hard to make this happen. You're always risking the elements when you go outside, but I thought it went off without a hitch. It's a good tipoff for us, knowing that basketball is right around the corner."

The men's and women's teams open the 2013-14 regular season with a doubleheader on Nov. 8. The women will host Jacksonville State at 5 p.m., followed by the men's game at 7:30 p.m. versus Troy.
