Sam Dekker leads all scorers with ten points. - Jamie Squire
A sloppy first half was saved by solid defense on Marshall Henderson and some key threes.
The Marshall Henderson show was preempted in the first half.
Henderson, the inveterate gunner for Ole Miss, is shooting one for eleven from the field. The Rebels have been forcing the Badgers into making bad passes as they are already at 9 turnovers in the first half which is right up against their season average of 9.7 turnovers a game. Reginald Buckner has also been absolutely disruptive in the low post for Ole Miss as well. He leads them with 7 points, 5 rebounds, 3 blocks, and 2 steals.
For the Badgers the old offensive bugaboos showed up in the first half beyond those turnovers. They are currently 7-of -23 from the field and 4-of-13 from beyond the arc. Sam Dekker leads them with ten points, though he has had some struggles on the defensive side of the ball. Ben Brust has also contributed two three-pointers and has accounted for three steals.
