Ten things to know about the Ole Miss Rebels

Ten non-Marshall Henderson notes about Ole Miss:

  1. At 6-0, Ole Miss is off to the best SEC start in school history. It last won seven straight SEC games in 1998.
  2. There are plans to build a new basketball arena on the Ole Miss campus for the 2015-16 season. The Tad Smith Coliseum seats 8,700 but has had its share of problems. There was a 25-minute delay during the Ole Miss-Arkansas game this season when the lights went out.
  3. Ole Miss missed its first eight free throws in its 63-61 win at Auburn last Saturday. The Rebels hit their last four to finish four-of-17 at the foul line. In its last three games, Ole Miss has shot just 51 percent from the line.
  4. Murphy Holloway averages a double-double with 14.8 points and 10.9 rebounds per game. He leads the SEC in rebounds.
  5. Reggie Buckner is the school's all-time leading shot blocker and is second in the SEC, averagin 2.8 blocked shots per game.
  6. Holloway has nine double-doubles this season, including two in SEC play. Buckner has six double-doubles this season, including three in SEC play.
  7. Ole Miss leads the SEC in scoring at 80.3 points per game, but opponents are shooting just 38.6 percent against the Rebels. That's the third-best in the SEC.
  8. San Francisco, which shot 50.9 percent, is the only team to shoot 50 percent or better against Misssissippi this season.
  9. Ole Miss is second in the SEC and fifth nationally in turnover margin at a +5.2 per game.
  10. Ole Miss has never received an NCAA Tournament bid with Andy Kennedy as coach. The former UAB star and Cincinnati interim head coach is in his seventh season at Oxford.
