With 13 seconds left, Kermit Davis put the ball in his senior leader’s hands and he delivered. For the 2nd time in a matter of days, the Ole Miss Rebels refused to falter down the stretch, erasing a 14-point second half deficit to complete the season sweep of the Auburn Tigers 86-84 in overtime Saturday afternoon.
Romello White put on a career performance at Auburn Arena, scoring 30 points, grabbing 10 rebounds and blocking 4 shots during a physically imposing afternoon. Devontae Shuler finished just shy of a career high with 26 points while Robert Allen tied a season high 12 points. Ole Miss has now won 14 of the last 18 meetings against Auburn.
Ole Miss head coach Kermit Davis, Romello White, and Devontae Shuler all met with the media postgame to discuss the nail biting win. Video is courtesy of Ole Miss Sports Productions.
