HOLOLULU, Hawaii – Murphy Holloway turned in a 23-point, 13-rebound effort on Sunday afternoon to lead the Ole Miss Rebels to an 85-78 win over San Francisco in Hawaii.
Holloway converted on 9-of-15 field goal attempts against the Dons and helped the Rebels to a 52-point second half that sealed the win. Ole Miss (9-2) trailed by five points entering the break and overcame an excellent performance from San Francisco’s Cody Doolin, who dropped a team-high 20 points in the loss.
Although Holloway headlined the performance for Ole Miss, he was not the only Rebel to have a big day in Honolulu. Guard Nick Williams connected on 58 percent of his field goal attempts on the day en route to 18 points for Mississippi, while Marshall Henderson (12 points) and Jarvis Summers (11) also scored in double figures. As a team, Ole Miss shot 45.6 percent from the floor, including a stellar 47.4-percent clip from beyond the 3-point line.
Doolin recorded eight assists and seven rebounds in addition to his 20 points for San Francisco, rounding out an all-around performance that kept the Dons (5-6) close throughout the afternoon. De’End Parker hit 6-of-12 shots against Ole Miss on his way to 17 points and five boards, and Cole Dickerson hit three 3-pointers while chipping in 14 points of his own in addition to six rebounds.
The Dons hit 50.9 percent of their shots on the day but could not get it going from long distance, hitting only 7-of-22 from 3-point range.
