Ole Miss gets that Georgia W

Does Ole Miss have its groove back?

Ole Miss beat Georgia 80-64, and enjoyed a big lead for the entire second half. It was a welcome change of pace from recent play.

Georgia isn’t very good, but it doesn’t matter. Ole Miss needed a game that would let it feel good about itself again.

This game did that.

Breein Tyree scored 31 points.

Bruce Stevens redeemed himself with 8 rebounds.

The Rebels got to experience a pull-away victory on the road.

It was just what the doctor ordered for a team that has been ailing.

Now the Rebels have that winning feeling again, two straight victories, and a 16-7 (6-4 SEC) record.

Ole Miss is still in striking distance of March Madness, and maybe just maybe we’re turning a corner here.

The Rebs visit Auburn on Wednesday.
