In putting together an unbeaten run through the first third of Southeastern Conference play, Ole Miss has won games in every conceivable fashion. The Rebels have won blowouts both at home and on the road. They have won in shootouts and low scoring battles alike. They have even won in overtime after hitting a game-tying 3-pointer at the end of regulation that is among the season’s most memorable shots to date.
However, there is a common thread throughout such a disparate set of six games: At no point did Andy Kennedy’s team ever cease to believe it would find a way to come out on top.
To John Calipari, that feels familiar.
