Late second half surge pushes Tide past Rebels 69-58

Gritty win by the Crimson Tide... we still have hope in the wacky SEC West.
Box Score

The first half set back basketball 50 years as neither team couldn't throw it in the ocean. Both teams found their shot in the second half, but Riley's key 3s helped us pull away.

The good:
- Held Ole Miss to 58 points on 24-62 shooting
- Defended the 3 well
- Outrebounded Ole Miss 43-33
- Only 10 turnovers

The bad:
- No Torrance in the 1st half. Our substitution patterns are strange.
- Poor shooting (24-65 from the field)
- Riley went from 1st off the bench to 40 minutes? Huh?

An important win to keep our SEC West hopes alive. I'm glad JD goes out a winner on senior night.
