Double the Fun
The backcourt handled the majority of the action against South Alabama Tuesday, but the big men got back in the game on Friday, as both Dwayne Curtis and Kenny Williams achieved double-doubles. Curtis and Williams played team-highs of 20 and 23 minutes respectively. Curtis finished with a game-high 19 points and 10 boards, while Williams totaled 14 and 15.
"We wanted to control the game, especially concerning rebounds," Williams said. "The guards had been playing well, but we have to produce. It is big boys once you get into the SEC."
The 6-foot-8 post player didn't start after violating a team rule. Curtis talked about the decision after the game.
"I was just kind of late for something. I was late coming out. It was my fault, can't blame anyone else."
Chris Warren had his best game as a Rebel Friday totaling 16 points and tallying an impressive eight assists to a single turnover. He was also a perfect three-for-three from the free throw line.
"I thought it was a solid effort," Andy Kennedy said. "He did an excellent job of running the team and getting the ball to the right people."
Ridin' the Bench
Ole Miss is picking up points from everywhere and produced 50 points off the bench against the Cardinals. Six players reached double figures including three that did not start: Williams, Curtis and Zach Graham (12).
Malcolm White Update
The freshman has been hobbled since straining his achilles seven to ten days ago.
"He is still practicing, but we want him to rest it as much as possible," Kennedy said. "The swelling is down, and we now have a couple days off. I want him to get healthy and give himself a chance."
North Mississippi Cards
Four Lamar players are Mississippi high school products. Lamar Sanders from Hickory Flat paced the Cardinals with 14 points, while Justin Nabors (Holly Springs), Currye Todd (Byhalia) and Kenny Dawkins (Holly Springs) scored 13, 11 and seven points respectively.
