TIP OFF

• Junior G Marshall Henderson scored a game-high 27 points and Ole Miss outscored Coastal Carolina 54-33 in the second half as the Rebels downed the Chanticleers 90-72 on Tuesday night.
• Henderson has started his Rebel career averaging 24.5 ppg over the first two contests and has hit 11-of-24 attempts from behind the three-point arc. The 49 points scored his first two games is the most by a Rebel to start his career since “World Class” Gerald Glass scored 59 points to start his career in 1988.
• Senior F Murphy Holloway added 15 points and 12 rebounds in the win over Coastal Carolina for his second straight double-double, and the 27th of his career, tying him for seventh all-time with Fred Cox in school history. Holloway’s 12 rebounds also moved him into a tie for seventh all-time in school history with Rebel great Justin Reed at 766 career boards.
• Senior F Reginald Buckner already holds the Ole Miss career record in blocked shots (232) and ranks 16th in SEC history in that category. He is just three blocks shy of tying Leon Douglas of Alabama for 15th.
• Ole Miss has forced 42 turnovers in the first two games for an average of 21 turnovers per game, while the Rebels have only turned the ball over 22 times on the season.

HENDERSON OFF TO A HOT START

Junior G Marshall Henderson was known as a scorer when coach Andy Kennedy signed the guard out of South Plains Junior College, and the Hurst, Texas native has definitely lived up to that billing in the first two games of the season. Henderson scored a game-high 22 points in the season opener versus Mississippi Valley State, hitting 5-of-11 from behind the arc and becoming the first Rebel to nail five 3-pointers in a game since Dundrecous Nelson in 2011. He finished the game 6 of 12 from the field and added two steals and an assist in his first collegiate start. In his second game vs. Coastal Carolina, Henderson poured a game-high 27 points, including 6-of-13 from three, and added four assists, two rebounds and two steals. The 49 points scored in his first two games is the most by a Rebel to start his career since “World Class” Gerald Glass scored 59 points in his first two games in 1988.

HOLLOWAY IS MASTER OF THE GLASS

Entering his final season at Ole Miss F Murphy Holloway has broken into the school’s top 10 for career rebounds. With 12 rebounds versus Coastal Carolina, Holloway tied Justin Reed (766) for ninth place on the Rebels’ all-time chart. He trails Dwayne Curtis be eight boards for sixth on the all-time list. Holloway is the SEC active career leader in rebounds and double-doubles, and ranks fifth among active players in points.

BUCKNER MOVES UP IN SEC CAREER BLOCKS LIST

Senior F Reginald Buckner became the Rebels’ all-time career leader in blocked shots last year. In just 98 games, the Memphis native has now accumulated 232 blocks, which is 16th in SEC history, and trails Leon Douglas, of Alabama, by just three blocks for 15th on the list. The school record was previously held by Sean Murphy, who had 180 blocks in 117 games from 1988-91. Buckner’s 2.2 average last season ranked fifth among SEC players and 41st in the nation. He now holds the school record for blocks in a career, season and game. He blocked at least one shot in 29 of 31 games last year and 82 of 95 games over his three-year career. His total of 69 blocks last season is the Ole Miss record by a junior and is the second-most in a season in school history. His sophomore season total of 95 is the school record.

REBELS FORCING OPPONENTS’ HAND

Ole Miss has forced 42 turnovers in the first two games for an average of 21 turnovers per game, while the Rebels have only turned the ball over 22 times on the season. The Rebel “D” has posted 22 steals as a team and senior Reginald Buckner and freshman Derrick Millinghaus are tied for the team lead with five steals each.

SCOUTING THE TROJANS

Arkansas-Little Rock returns two starters off of last year’s squad that posted a 15-16 record and won the Sun Belt Western Division a 12-4 mark in league play. The Trojans opened the 2012-13 season with a 84-68 home victory over Tennessee-Martin last Friday. Freshmen John Gillon and James White combined for 40 points of the bench to lead the
Trojans to the 16-point victory, while preseason first team All-SBC selection Will Neighbour produced the third double-double of his career with 13 points and a career-best 13 rebounds.

REMEMBER NOVEMBER

In seven seasons under head coach Andy Kennedy, Ole Miss has racked up a 32-6 record in November games, including a 2-0 mark this season and a 6-1 record last year.

DEFENDING HOME COURT

Winning at home has been a trademark of Andy Kennedy’s squads since he took the reins in 2006-07. Ole Miss is 86-18 (.827 win pct.) in games played at Tad Smith Coliseum during Kennedy’s tenure, including a 2-0 record this season. Ole Miss has won 217 of its last 267 games (.813 win pct.) in Oxford dating back to the 1995-96 campaign. The Rebels have an all-time record of 450-197 (.696 win pct.) at Tad Smith Coliseum, which opened in 1965-66.

NON-CONFERENCE SUCCESS

The Rebels boast a 77-21 record (.786 win pct.) against teams outside the SEC since Andy Kennedy took over in 2006-07, including a 53-2 mark at home. The Rebels are 2-0 versus non-conference foes this year.

PRESEASON PROJECTIONS

Ole Miss was predicted to finish seventh in the SEC in the preseason media poll. The league eliminated the East and West divisions for the 2011-12 season. Kentucky was tabbed league champion, followed by Florida, Missouri, Tennessee, Arkansas, Alabama and Ole Miss. Rounding out the predictions were Georgia, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt, LSU, Auburn, South Carolina and Mississippi State. Athlon also tabbed Murphy Holloway to the national All-Underrated first team.
