After an impressive showing in her debut, Ole Miss forward Snudda Collins has been named SEC Freshman of the Week.
Collins – a native of Brookhaven, Mississippi – led all scorers with 23 points in Monday night’s season opener vs. McNeese State, the most ever by a Rebel in their freshman debut (in available records) and the most by any SEC freshman this season. Furthermore, it was the most by any Rebel in a season opener since 2017.
Collins was 5-of-8 from beyond the arc, helping Ole Miss notch its most points in the Coach Yo era overall and the most in a season opener since 2005 with 99 points scored. Collins was part of a group of newcomers who contributed 88 of those 99 points vs. McNeese, and was one of an all-newcomer group of five in double-digit scoring against the Cowgirls.
Ole Miss returns to the floor this Thursday night (Dec. 3) when it hosts Kansas for the first time in program history for the SEC/Big 12 Challenge. Tipoff is set for 7:30 p.m. CT inside The Pavilion and on SEC Network.
