Despite Jarkel Joiner’s torrid 2nd half shooting, Ole Miss could not get past LSU in a 76-73 loss in the SEC Tournament quarterfinals Friday at Bridgestone Arena.
Despite the loss, the Rebels (16-11) have won 8 of their last 11 games and are squarely in the hunt for an NCAA Tournament berth. Ole Miss will learn its fate on Sunday night’s selection show.
Joiner poured in 21 points in the 2nd half and finished with 26 for the game, his most as a Rebel. He is averaging 19.7 points over his last 3 outings. It was also another big night for Romello White, who posted his 4th double-double in the Red and Blue with 20 points and 13 rebounds. He is scoring at a 15.2 clip over his last five outings.
Ole Miss head basketball coach Kermit Davis, Jarkel Joiner, and Romello White all spoke about the game postgame. Video is courtesy of Ole Miss Sports Productions.
