Saiz Bolsters Rebels' Frontline Depth

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Ole Miss freshman Sebastian Saiz, who represented his native Spain in international competition this past summer, along with fellow freshman Dwight Coleby, join four returnees on the frontline for the Rebels this season.

Senior Demarco Cox and junior Aaron Jones are coming off season-ending injuries, and sophomores Terry Brutus and Anthony Perez are entering their second year in the program.

Head coach Andy Kennedy has been really pleased with how Cox and Jones have progressed, how they have approached the offseason and how they are playing now. Kennedy said that Cox has been fully cleared, and Jones is probably a week away from being cleared for 5-on-5 full contact.

"Demarco is a big, strong, physical body who has been in our program for four years, and he's anxious to get back on the court after having sat out the year with a stress fracture," Kennedy said. "AJ is responding equally as well. He's athletic, brings energy, pursues the ball with reckless abandon, and he has not lost that despite going down with a season-ending ACL injury against Kentucky.

"Dwight Coleby is another big, physical presence at 6-foot-9, 235 pounds, and he brings a physicalness to that position that we desperately need. And then you throw in Anthony (Perez) and Terry Brutus, who have the versatility to help us in a number of spots."

    I am not and never have been an Ole Miss fan. I am however a Coach Freeze fan. I like what he represents in today's world of big time sports and what he stands for in leading young men of today into a more responsible role. He is everything that Ole Miss has never had. I am on his band wagon winning or losing.
