Ole Miss Rebels prepare for first game Friday

(WMC-TV) - Ole Miss has a practice under their belt and are spending the night relaxing as they anticipate their time on the dance floor in Kansas City.

Fans who made the trip to Missouri are being met by an early spring snow storm.

The Rebels got a chance to practice Thursday and the Sprint Center stands had some Ole Miss fans in them.

"We are die hard Ole Miss fans. We are season ticket holders. Football, basketball, and baseball, and we always said if we make the dance, we will be there," said David McCullough.

Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson's sister was there to see her brother practice.

"I'm a huge fan of him. I'm always there supporting him, so it's been awesome to sit on the sideline of every game cheering for him," said Paige Henderson.

Henderson is known for his on-the-court antics, taste for bravado, and major shooting skills. His proud father and former high school basketball coach is ready to see the team in action.

"We are talking about the SEC champs and they got a 12 seed. They really haven't been given much respect," said Willie Henderson.

The plan is for the Rebels to relax Thursday night and watch some of the other Big Dance games going on.

Ole Miss will play at 11:40 a.m. Friday.
