Do It Like Football!

By David Scott - November 19, 2006

HARTFORD - Before last night’s film breakdown, Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy invoked the Rebel football team as evidence that upsets can happen.

At the time of the film session, Ole Miss was up on LSU (on the road) 20-3, in what would have been a huge upset.

We’re doubting Kennedy was able to continue to use the analogy for today’s pre-game speech, as the Rebels wound up dropping the game to LSU, 23-20 in overtime.

But, at the time, he was saying it, it had the desired effect. And through the first eight minutes of this contest, it’s working as the Rebels are tied 12-12 with the Husky Puppies (one senior, one junior and all the rest sophomores and freshmen).

. . . UConn comes at you in waves, with nine players averaging 11 minutes or more, through the first three games.

. . . We’re not sure if the lane at the UConn basket is electrified, but the Rebels seem to be avoiding it as if it is. Call it the Thabeet Effect.
