HENDERSON OFF TO A HOT 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 Henderson 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 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 nine rebounds versus UALR, Holloway vaulted past Rahim Lockhart (780) and Dwayne Curtis (774) into fifth-place in Ole Miss history with 782 boards. Next on the list is John Stroud in fourth-place with 826 boards. Holloway is the SEC active career leader in rebounds and double-doubles, ranks second in steals and third in points. He is tied for the SEC lead this season with two double-doubles and ranks second in the conference in rebounding at 9.8 rpg.

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 100 games, the Memphis native has now accumulated 237 blocks, which ranks 15th in SEC history with Leon Douglas of Alabama. He trails Mamadou N'diaye, of Auburn, by just four blocks for 14th on the list. The school record was previously held by Sean Murphy, who had 180 blocks in 117 games from 1988-91. Buckner's 2.3 average this season ranks third among SEC players. He now holds the school record for blocks in a career, season and game. He blocked at least one shot in 30 of 32 games last year and 87 of 100 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.
