Moody exits SEC tourney as one of the most dynamic players in Ole Miss history

Stefan Moody could well be remembered as one of the most exciting players to suit up at Ole Miss—and in all of college basketball. And the standing ovation following his fifth foul with 30 seconds left against Alabama on Thursday night signified his prowess in the sport.

Moody made 8-of 17 from the 3-point line and 12-of-27 from the field against the Crimson Tide. He also split a numerous amount of double-teams on his way to the lane for either a foul or an up-and-under layup.

The 5-foot-10 senior guard simply carried the Rebels on his back for the entire 40 minutes in an attempt to give his team a chance to play another day in the Southeastern Conference Tournament.

But Moody’s 39 points weren’t enough as Ole Miss (20-12) fell 81-73 to Alabama (18-13). Regardless of the outcome, however, Moody wasn’t afraid to be in charge of leading a team to victory. It’s in his DNA. Outside of his scoring, the Rebels were 14-for-40.

“Well, some of that is my job,” Moody said when asked about the team’s offensive struggles against the Crimson Tide. “I don’t look at my teammates and complain at them for anything. It’s my job, and I embrace it. So I do what I can.”

Par 72; 6,148 yards

Rebel To Watch For
Junior Madisen Bentley (University Place, Wash.) is in the lineup once again after carding a team-best 4-over par 74 in the second round of the Gator Invitational last week. Bentley looks to continue her low scoring in the Clover Cup.

Same Lineup, Different Tournament
The Rebel coaching staff is going with the same players for the second straight tournament. Abby Newton (Katy, Texas) is joining the field as an individual, a spot that was kind to the Rebels a year ago in Mesa.

Head Coach Kory Henkes Quoted
On getting the tournament started…
“We had a great practice round yesterday and the team loves Longbow Golf Club. We look forward to getting off to a strong start today to set the tone for a great weekend.”

The New Vaught-Hemingway

When Ole Miss runs through the tunnel inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium for its Sept. 10, home opener versus Wofford, the Rebels will officially christen the multi-million dollar expansion and renovations to one of college football’s most venerable venues.

Ole Miss is spending some $25.6 million for the bowling in of the north end zone, $16.9 million for renovations to the south end zone, $11.6 million on video boards and audio upgrades and $5.4 million on converting the artificial playing surface to natural grass. Construction is well underway with a completion date scheduled for August.

Here is a virtual video tour of what the home of the Rebels will look like this fall…
