Notes

Coach Andy Kennedy

On the game:
"We were pretty good offensively. We didn't defend as well as we need to. We gave up 54 percent on our home floor. Our pressure bothered them a little bit. He (Elston Turner) made a couple of hard shots, made a couple of difficult ones at the end. Bottom line is we produced enough offense. We had contributions from a number of different guys. Marshall (Henderson) finally knocked down some shots in the second half. It allowed us to get the separation we needed."

On the front court:
"I was really proud of our front court. When I look at Reggie (Buckner) and Murphy (Holloway)'s numbers, one goes for 12 (points) and seven (rebounds), the other goes for 16 and nine. They were very accurate, Reggie especially in the second half. We had to limit his minutes in the first half with the two early fouls. As long as we were in the game, I didn't want to risk it. They were both active on the offensive glass. Those are the guys that we need to produce."

On Jarvis Summers:
"I can tell pretty quickly how Jarvis is going to play. It's about his energy level, his awareness, if he's engaged in the game, talking and moving the ball. He was all of those things for us. He got us a good push in transition. He made some shots. Jarvis has never been a volume guy, that's not his role, but he has to be a timely shot maker. I thought he was tonight. He got the ball to the right people at the right time. He had four assists, no turnovers and scored 15. We had a number of guys make contributions and it really started with him."

On Anthony Perez:
"He was good. He hit a big three and made two free throws. He was active on the glass. He's a body, and we need another body. He's a versatile guy for us. We don't have a replacement for him. Other guys are going to have to continue to step up and do what we need to do."

Coach Billy Kennedy

Opening Statement:
"I've seen it happen to most teams in our league and it didn't happen to us at home, but Marshall (Henderson) got going and between that and their ability to make shots against the zone got them the win. I have to give Ole Miss credit, they're a good team, and I'm looking for them to make a good run this season."

On Ole Miss' Defense:
"Fabyon Harris struggled making shots early. We're last in the league in made threes, and we had difficulty making layups. That forced us to make perimeter jump shots. We didn't handle the ball well, and our freshmen made some freshmen mistakes. Their zone is big at times when they have (LaDarius) White up top."

On Elston Turner:
"They were much more aware of him. Elston played well, 10 of 17 shooting with 25 points. He didn't have 37. We would've needed him to have a special game."

On Jarvis Summers:
"He played well, drove the ball and with our size he was able to get in the lane and make plays for other people. He did some great things and I like him a lot. I recruited him at Murray State and unfortunately he came to Ole Miss, and I have to face him. He did a lot of good things."
