LAS VEGAS (AP) Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy knows a trip to Las Vegas can be distracting. So, he let his Rebels do their thing when they arrived Saturday. That could be one of the reasons they fell flat Monday and suffered their first loss of the season, to Utah.
That loss he said, however, is the reason his team responded on Wednesday night.
Deandre Burnett had 18 points and a career-high tying eight assists to lead Mississippi to a 79-62 rout of Rice in the Heavyweight bracket's consolation game at the MGM Grand Main Event.
