The Ole Miss men’s basketball team rolled in its first game of the 2018 Canada Tour 102-61 over McGill on Sunday afternoon in Montreal. The Rebels open the Kermit Davis era in a dominant fashion.

Ole Miss held the Redmen to a 28.6 percent (18 of 63) clip from the floor, while shooting 58 percent (40 of 69) on the other side of the court. Senior Terence Davis scored a team-high 20 points, including the Rebels’ first nine of the game. Sophomore Devontae Shuler matched Davis with a team-high 25 minutes, recording 11 points and dishing out three assists. On his birthday, senior Bruce Stevens added 13 points for the Rebels.
Davis got the Rebels off to a fast start, scoring the team’s first nine points of the game to give Ole Miss a 9-2 advantage. The Southaven, Mississippi, native finished the quarter with 12 points as the Rebels built a 26-15 lead after 10 minutes of play. Ole Miss shot 50 percent (11 of 22) in the opening quarter, including 4 of 7 from beyond the arc.
The Rebels increased their lead by outscoring the Redmen 25-20 in the second quarter. Stevens led the way in the quarter with seven points. Ole Miss continued its hot shooting by making 11 of their 18 shots (61.1 percent) to boast a first-half field goal percentage of 55 percent. To end the half, Stevens picked up a steal before finding Shuler on the fast break. The sophomore glided through the air for a reverse dunk to send the Rebels into the locker room ahead 51-35.
McGill was led by Sam Jenkins, who went 4 of 5 from three-point land en route to a team-high 16 points. Alex Paquin added 14 points, while Jamal Mayali scored 10 points off the bench. The Rebels limited the Redmen to 18 made field goals, and the home team found most of its success from the charity stripe (17 of 23). 
Ole Miss returns to the hardwood tonight as they take on Concordia in Montreal.
