Nashville, TN-Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson scored 23 points to lead the Rebels to a 64-52 win over Vanderbilt in the semifinals of the SEC tournament semifinals. Ole Miss is now just one win away from making their first NCAA tournament appearance under Andy Kennedy.
A 25-8 record may be enough to get the Rebels an at-large bid if they don’t win the automatic berth. They play the Florida Gators in Sunday’s title game. It’s the Rebels first appearance in the tourney title game since 2001.
Memphian Reginald Buckner added 15 points for the Rebels.
