Ole Miss Women’s Basketball Cruises To Exhibition Win Over Mississippi College

9702023.jpgThe Ole Miss women’s basketball team used a 19-0 run in the second quarter en route to a 93-40 exhibition win over Mississippi College on Friday night at The Pavilion at Ole Miss.

Erika Sisk (Oxford, Miss.) led a quarter in double figures with 19 points. Taylor Manuel (St. Louis Mo.), Shandricka Sessom (Byhalia, Miss.) and Madinah Muhammad (Chicago, Ill.) joined Sisk in double figures. Sessom also led the way on the glass with seven rebounds.

The Rebels held a 41-13 lead at the halftime break and kept the momentum going in the second half, outscoring the Lady Choctaws a combined 52-27 the third and fourth quarters and held the visitors to just seven fourth-quarter points. For the game, Ole Miss shot 54.0 percent from the field.

The Rebels opened the game with an 11-2 run spearheaded by four points from freshman Shelby Gibson (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) who was one of four newcomers to see action in the exhibition game.

Leading 11-2, the home team forced a steal and scored on a layup from Oxford native Erika Sisk, forcing Mississippi College to call a timeout. Ole Miss managed to hold the Lady Choctaws scoreless for 8:54 while running the scoring to 18-2, while capitalizing on second chance points by holding a 6-2 advantage in the category through one quarter of action.

Mississippi College cut into the deficit with 5-0 spurt to open the second quarter, cutting a once 18-point lead to 10 points at the 7:19 mark, forcing the home team to call a timeout to regroup. The timeout was all the Rebels needed as they rattled off 19 straight points, highlighted by triples from sophomore guard Madinah Muhammad (Chicago, Ill.) and junior guard Sessom pushing the Ole Miss margin to 28 points.

Ole Miss took a 41-13 lead into the halftime break and was led by Sessom with 12 points and Manuel with 10 points while Sessom led the way with four rebounds.

From The Head Coach
On the win …
“Very, very impressive first time out. Really liked our energy. Really liked our patience offensively. We’re a different team than we’ve been in the past. It’s about being efficient offensively, and tonight we were that. We scored consistently in every quarter because we played consistently, and that’s not what we’ve been in the past. This is a different basketball team than we’ve had in my four years here. It’s a team that’s very talented and I’m really proud of them. Had a good crowd there tonight. It was a good crowd for an exhibition game. We’re real happy about that.”

On the play of the newcomers
“Taylor and Shelby are very talented players who can make plays. All of our newcomers did really well. I was really happy with the minutes Kate Rodgers got there and how she played. Bree Glover played really hard and played really well. Really happy with all of our freshmen. We played tonight without two of our players who could be starters for us. Alissa Alston and Chrishae Rowe are both very talented players, so we still have those two to add to the mix. Really excited about this team and what it can become.”

On improvements to make …
“I will say one negative we had was 21 turnovers, and that’s just us getting careless with the basketball. It’s just nerves. I think we had eight in the first quarter, and it was just nervousness. It’s a process of understanding what’s going on offensively. That’s something that’s very, very important, and it’s something we’ll continue to get better at. As they continue to understand what’s going on offensively in a game setting, turnovers will go down.”

On the play of Erika Sisk …
“First time she’s ever played point guard in her life at this level. I thought she had a great day today. I couldn’t be more proud of how she played. She didn’t force anything. She played her game and played really well.”
