When you think Ole Miss Basketball…

There’s not a whole lot going on down in Oxford when it comes to basketball.  Okay, so there is absolutely nothing going on down in Oxford when it comes to basketball.

But I tried to compile a list of things that come to mind, anyway.  Please add more Ole Miss basketball memories (if any) in the comments section.

——————————————

Jeannine asked a really bad question – When you look back at Billy Gillispie’s time at Kentucky, this interview says it all…

 

Brian Smith – Tubby’s point guard son – the one who didn’t have us pulling our hair out. Brian played high school at Lexington Catholic and led the Knights to the 2002 state title.  He joined the Ole Miss basketball team in 2004.

Terrico Wright’s coming out party – In 2009, Ole Miss freshman Terrico Wright exploded in Mississippi’s first win over Kentucky in 8 years.  White scored 21 points with 7 assists and 5 rebounds while dunking all over Patrick Patterson and Perry Stevenson. Now White is in his rookie season with the Detroit Pistons.

2001 Sweet Sixteen – Ole Miss was a No. 3 seed and made it to the Sweet Sixteen in the 2001 NCAA Tournament. It’s the only time you’ve ever heard of the Rebels basketball program doing anything in March.  Basketball historians still question the success.

“Assault? Why Jiddou That?” – In 2008, a Cincinnati cab driver named Mohamed Moctar Ould Jiddou accused Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy of punching him in the face and calling him “Osama” and “Saddam Huessein.”  Kennedy avoided a possible six-month jail sentence on the original first-degree misdemeanor assault charge by pleading down to disorderly conduct.  Whether he did it or not, the police cruiser video is pretty entertaining…

 

Kimber Kennedy sues for “lack of consortium” – Andy Kennedy’s wife said the claims against her husband from that night in Cincinnati ruined the couple’s sex life. So she sued the cab driver for the Ole Miss basketball coach’s lack of playing time and inability to take it to the hole.

David Huertas – That’s all I got.  David Huertas.

——————————————

It’s going to be a Red Out in Tad Coliseum when Kentucky and Ole Miss tip-off at 7 pm.

Go Cats.

    It pains me no mention is made of one Roderick Barnes when discussing anything in regards to Ole Miss Rebel basketball.

    In case you have forgotten or are too young to remember, Roderick was a guard/small forward who played at Ole Miss from 1979 through 1997. Although he did serve a brief stint as Coach of Ole Miss, he is primarily remembered for his smooth stroke and SpongeBob SquarePants physique during his years as an Ole Miss player.

    Discussion of Ole Miss Rebel Basketball should never be without mention of Roderick Barnes.

    Isn’t Ole Miss called the “BEARS” now?

    Interesting side note- Roderick Barnes was 42 years old his Senior season.

    Anyone have a # for Kimber. Looks like she needs some assistance.

    16 – not just JN, but Adolph’s interview with him, in which they both said the other was the greatest. As I recall, it went something like:
    Adolph – Well, Johnny, you’re the greatest player in the country.
    JN – Well, coming from the greatest coach in the history of the game, that’s a great compliment.

    And so it went. Yes, my age is showing.

    I always think of Ansu Sesay and the white guy (around the same time) that would wear the knee high tube socks. Also the little 5’5″ guard that played early in the 2000s.

    ESPNU is available in HD but it doesn’t really look any better. I think EPSN only lets them use the old crappy cameras.

    my first UK game was against Ole Miss at Freedom Hall in 94 or 95. Cant remember which year, but we beat the ish out of them.

    That was a bad question. Kentucky was up at the break and she’s asking why Jodi only has 6. Clyde could have definitely handled it better, but it was a bad question.

    Since 1979, it looks like UK is 18-6 at Ole Miss. Always fret when UK plays at Ole Miss….

    Yes – sean touhey was the name I most remember. Seems like I heard Cawood say that name for about six years over my radio. He was the Ole Miss version of Kyle Macy.

    For as much as Saul Smith made us pull our hair out, I doubt there are many UK fans that would trade hair with him now.

    Cops r pricks. Short napoleonic complex having, power mongering douchebags.
    Andy may have been guilty but that cop was a jerkoff.

    When I think of Ole Miss, I think of ex-coach Rod Barnes self-proclaiming that UK was no longer the elite basketball school in the SEC, and Ole Miss was. Wish I could find that quote.
