  • Kaleb Brown with a great block on Nosier Brooks off of a switch in which the 7-footer had great position.
  • Offenses both starting to get into more of a rhythm.
  • Acrobatic and-one layup for Trevon Brazile as he lost the ball mid-drive.
  • Ole Miss with some easy run-out layups that give them their first lead of the game at 22-21.
  • Kobe Brown loses his defender with his signature around-the-back dribble.
  • Dajuan Gordon gives the Ole Miss bench a “hush” sign after a made 3, then does it again.
