“It sure was fun for our staff to watch those guys play. The strength of our team is our depth and we’re continuing to develop. We were very physical and connected defensively tonight.”
Ole Miss basketball coach Kermit Davis had nothing but good things to say after the Rebels (1-0) scored early and often, using a smothering defense to open the 2020-2021 season with a 80-45 win at The Pavilion against the Jackson State Tigers.
Senior guard Devontae Shuler led all scorers with a game-high 23 points on the night, and also met with the media after the game. Hear what he and Coach Davis had to say here. Video is courtesy of Ole Miss Sports Productions.
