OXFORD, Miss. (WLOX) -Rebels finding success on the defensive side of the ball in the 61-50 win over the Aggies Saturday.

Coach Kermit Davis says it’s some of the best defense he’s seen his team play all season.
“We had some good moments and there for about 25 minutes, that’s about the best we’ve been we just had active hands,” said Davis. “A lot of different guys played different positions we matched up. We just got our hands on a ton of balls end of the first half and the start of the second half.”
Devontae Shuler finished the game with 17 points, four rebounds, and three assists.
Jarkel Joiner finished with 20 pints and seven boards.
