Yeah, Ole Miss lost, but I’m feelin’ okay about it

The ending felt like a punch to the gut, and the sting lingered until I fell asleep, but 12 hours removed from the 73-71 loss to Tennessee, I’m feeling pretty good about the state of Ole Miss basketball.

If the Rebels can play every game the way they played on Wednesday night, they could go deep into March.

Terence Davis and Breein Tyree were awesome.

Speaking of Davis.

That’s gotta be one of the best Ole Miss dunks of all time.

The Rebels might have lost, but I think they won the eye-ball test. One made free throw probably gives Ole Miss a win over a Top 10 team. I can’t help but think that the Rebels won’t be penalized for that loss.

Three games remain:

Arkansas, Kentucky and Missouri. The Rebs are favorites in two out of three of those, and based on the way they played against Tennessee, I wouldn’t count them out against Kentucky.

If Ole Miss Basketball was a stock, I’m buying today.
