OXFORD, Miss. - Players from the Rebel men's and women's basketball programs as well as members of the Ole Miss Athletics Department recently participated in the Rollin' Rebels wheelchair basketball exhibition in conjunction with the university's Student Disabilities Services Department.
Terry Brutus, Derrick Millinghaus and LaDarius White from the men's hoops team were joined by Monique Jackson, Courtney Marbra, Valencia McFarland, Diara Moore, Maggie McFerrin and Amber Singletary from the women's hoops team in the five-on-five exhibition. Teams from all across campus also took part in the week long tournament to promote Disability Awareness Month.
Athletics staff included Executive Director of the Ole Miss Athletics Foundation Keith Carter, Senior Associate Athletics Director for Academic Support Derek Cowherd, Assistant Athletics Director for Internal Operations Jamil Northcutt, Rebel Ready Intern Andre Harris, Associate Director of Development Ronnie Heard, Learning Specialist Cara Littlejohn and Staff Accountant Ally Slivka.
"It looked easy when I first got out here, but it was pretty difficult," said freshman guard Derrick Millinghaus. "My team was able to pull out the win, but the most important thing was to raise awareness for students with disabilities."
"Getting the chance to play this game with my teammates was so different but it was such a fun experience," junior guard Diara Moore said. "I'm always up for trying something new, and honestly I don't think any of us realized how hard wheelchair basketball actually is to play. But, overall it was really an amazing time with some great people and I would love to do it again. Hopefully next time my team will get it together and we win!"
