When asked what led to the Rebels taking that big of a lead into the break, Freeman said, “We used our size and length and got a bunch of points in the paint. Played good defense.”

Even though the Wildcats put up 32 points after halftime, they could slow down the Rebels nearly enough to get back in the game as ACCS scored 33 points.

Jamar Kaho Jr. and Tyson Young contributed with seven points each while Kyron Barnes poured in six points.
