At first there was a little doubt, but they Commodores come away with a win tonight. Thanks to great nights by AJ and Jeff, and a nice closing by Jermaine Beal. ALthough, that Ole Miss 3-ball was keeping the Rebels in the game…
Before we get into the great news and stats, I want to bring about something else. And that’s the poor night Andre Walker. This is a guy who’s became a huge part of this team, as well as one of my favorite players – but he didn’t fair so well tonight. Only 2 points with limited minutes due to QUICK (and I mean quick) foul trouble. Maybe Kevin Stallings should’ve thought more about putting Andre in after that injury, we WILL need him for Kentucky.
Alright, onto the good stuff. First let’s go to AJ Ogilvy, a man commonly critized for dissapearing in games did no such thing tonight. AJ picked up a game-high 27 points, and then added 8 rebounds just for some extra suger-couting.
Jeff Taylor was fantastic, again. 17 points, 4 assist. If he keeps this string of great games going, he’ll be a key man in our game aginst Kentucky.
Last is my man, Jermaine Beal. Who had no points in the first half, but a crucial 14 points in the second half (by the way, I made a prediction at halftime on VSL that he would get over 10 points).
So, let’s get the boy’s rested up (and Andre fully-healed) for the season-deciding Kentucky game (only two more days)!
