Sophomore Terence Davis scored tied a career-high 19 points and senior Sebastian Saiz posted his second straight double-double with 10 points and 13 rebounds, as Ole Miss blasted Bradley 66-49 Monday.

Cullen Neal scored 12 while Saiz posted his sixth double-double of the season for the Rebels (8-3), who were never seriously threatened.

Darrell Brown scored 14 points for Bradley (5-7).

The Braves shot 18 of 58 (31 percent) from the field overall, trailed 38-19 at halftime and never got closer than 17 points again.

Ole Miss was 23 of 55 (41 percent) from the field, including 9 of 28 from 3-point range, and out rebounded Bradley 41-36.

Ole Miss went on an 11-0 run during a two-minute frame late in the first half to build a 19-point halftime cushion. Neal and Burnett combined for three 3-point shots before Davis capped the decisive surge with a twisting layup.

The Rebels return to action on Thursday night, hosting South Alabama at 8 p.m.

Ole Miss 2017 recruiting update: JUCO pickups give Rebels a bump

Coach Hugh Freeze

It’s been a busy week for Ole Miss despite the dead period being in effect.

The Rebels not only landed the signatures of four players on the first day of the early signing period on Wednesday, but coach Hugh Freeze also picked his new offensive and defensive coordinators, according to multiple reports.

Former Sam Houston State offensive coordinator Phil Longo will serve as Ole Miss’ new offensive coordinator, while Auburn cornerbacks coach Wesley McGriff will get his first shot as an SEC defensive coordinator for the Rebels.

McGriff’s presence should help things tremendously as the countdown to National Signing Day moves on, as the new coordinator was a huge part of Ole Miss’ highly touted 2013 recruiting class.

On the recruiting trail, the Rebels officially landed four 3-star prospects, as defensive end Markel Winters, linebacker Brenden Williams, cornerback Javien Hamilton and quarterback Jordan Ta’amu all signed national letters of intent on Wednesday.

Wesley McGriff wants to be fast, aggressive and simple at Ole Miss

Wesley McGriff officially became Ole Miss’ new defensive coordinator Friday. While it has been frequently referred as his first time as a defensive coordinator, his resume shows that he held the time at Kentucky State from 1995-99. During that stint, he won the AFCA’s NCAA Division II National Assistant Coach of the Year in 1998.

Coaching an SEC West defense in 2017, however, will be a whole different animal. On a Friday conference call, McGriff described describe the new version of the LandShark defense in three words: fast, aggressive and simple.

“In order to be fast, aggressive and confident you have to be simple and that was realized before my eyes this past season with Coach Steele,” McGriff said. “It may have looked like we had multiple defenses and multiple fronts and coverages, but a lot of them were the same. We really did a tremendous job of installing concepts.

“When you take your journey throughout the profession and you see playbooks that are so thick that it will take you almost two semesters to get through them and you’re only playing 12 or 13 games in a season, it’s just entirely too much defense. Nowadays with offenses going multiple formations you can only have so many defenses you can install. So yes sir, we’re going to err on the side of being simple.”
