The Ole Miss women’s basketball team continued to use a high-flying offense as they defeated the Temple Owls 64-48 in Philadelphia Saturday night.
Ole Miss (5-1) played without its leading scorer, Mudinah Muhammad, for most of the game. After suffering a minor ankle injury in practice, she did not score in the first eight minutes of play, and Head Coach Matt Insell pulled her.
The Rebels didn’t let that affect them, as Shandricka Sessom led the team with 23 points and 8 rebounds against Temple. Her teammate, Promise Taylor, was right on her heels with 15 points and 8 boards.
Insell’s squad only allowed the Owls to shoot 25 percent from the floor, which is the lowest anyone has shot against the Rebels.
Towards the final horn, Ole Miss used a 13-4 run to extend the lead, which had previously been a back-and-fourth tilt.
