Tying a career-best 22 points, Ole Miss’ Kennedy Todd-Williams Helps Lead Rebels to 69-59 win on Road at Georgia

ATHENS — Ole Miss women’s basketball went into Athens and defeated the Georgia Bulldogs, 69-59, Sunday afternoon. The Rebels (13-5, 3-3 SEC) were led on the court by Kennedy Todd-Williams with 22 points.

Dropping a career-tying best of 22 points, Todd-Williams drained a career-best 10 field goals as well as dishing out a season-high five assists.

I was just being aggressive, and I needed to do what my team needed me to do…I found a way to get it done…it was a really good game for us, to share the ball…just playing together…We came together this game and it was really nice to get the dub.

Kennedy Todd-Williams on the win over Georgia

Coach Yo was asked after the game about Todd-Williams’ play.

Toddy is the hardest working player on our team….she does the extra. Nobody is more deserving of having the kind of game she had….she wants to win. She had earned the start…I’m really proud of her.

In the opening ten minutes of action Ole Miss and Georgia both traded buckets. The Lady Bulldogs took an 18-16 advantage into the second.

The Rebels opened the second quarter with an 11-2 run to go up 27-20.  Ole Miss extended its lead to a 12-point advantage, 32-20, before Georgia scored a basket.

The Rebels defense played stellar in the second quarter, only allowing Georgia to score nine points.

Holding them to nine points in the 2nd and 13 in the 4th is what I want Ole Miss WBB to look like. I thought everyone who got in played incredibly hard. Grateful we got the win.

Senior Snudda Collins nailed a season-high three triples en route to 17 points. Marquesha Davis tallied double-figures as well with 11 points for her 14th game of the season in double-figures. As a team, Ole Miss shot at a 51.7% clip for its best to date in SEC play.
