Rebels Beat Central Arkansas in Davis’ 800 Game as a Head Coach

The Ole Miss men’s basketball team kept on rolling on Kermit Davis’ 61st birthday Monday night to remain unbeaten on the season, and the defense made sure of it. The Rebels (3-0) found big chunks of points off turnovers and the bench to defeat Central Arkansas and their coach, former Ole Miss basketball great Anthony Boone, 68-54 at The Pavilion.

The game was Davis’ 800th career game as a college head coach and also capped off a three-game homestand over five days. “It sure was good to have Anthony Boone back in Oxford. He meant so much to so many people here around Ole Miss,” Davis said. “Our team, you saw our energy level at times. Devontae Shuler is playing at a high level now. We have to keep building confidence.”
