Relive Rebels' Victory over Tennessee and Saiz's Historic Night

The Ole Miss Men’s Basketball team was able to mount a comeback last night with four players finishing with double-digit scoring to secure a victory over the Tennessee Volunteers.
Sebastian Saiz made history during last night’s game by reaching 1,000 career points as a Rebel after knocking down a pair of free throws in the second half. Saiz’s 10 rebounds also brought him his 12th double-double of the season and allowed him to reach 800 career rebounds making him just the sixth Ole Miss player in history to reach the 1,000 points and 800 rebounds career milestone.
The Rebels were able to climb back from a 13-point deficient and hold the Volunteers scoreless for the final four minutes of the game after losing senior Rasheed Brooks who suffered a seizure early in the second half. Brooks was taken off the floor and transported to the hospital where he is currently stable and will continue to undergo testing.

Saiz reached 1,000 career points after making this free throw.
