OTTAWA, Canada (WTVA/Ole Miss Athletics) – The Ole Miss men’s basketball team faced its toughest test of the 2018 Canada Tour, a Carleton team that has won 13 of the past 16 Canadian national championships. After knocking off Cincinnati by 19 two nights earlier, the Canadian powerhouse jumped out to a big first half lead to knock off the Rebels 81-63 Wednesday night in Ottawa.

The loss was the Rebels’ first setback in Canada, falling to 2-1 with one game remaining. Senior guard Terence Davis led the way with a game-high 23 points, seven rebounds and three blocks. The Southaven, Mississippi, native went 8 of 15 from the floor and drained five three-pointers. Breein Tyree added 13 points, while Blake Hinson recorded eight points on a perfect 3 of 3 shooting (2 of 2 from long range) to go along with seven boards.

Three Rebels fouled out in the contest as free throw shooting proved to be a major factor. Carleton made 25 of 37 from the charity stripe, while the Rebels went 10 of 17. Munis Tutu paced the Ravens with 20 points, eight rebounds and seven assists. Eddie Ekiyor recorded 16 points off the bench, finding the majority of his scoring at the line (10 of 16).

The Rebels got off to a fast start behind Davis. The senior knocked down his first three shots, including a pair from long range, to give Ole Miss the early 10-6 advantage. However, a dry spell lasting 5:46 led to a 17-0 run for Carleton. Tyree ended the drought, scoring the Rebels’ last four points of the quarter. After 10 minutes of play, the home team controlled the game 26-14.

Carleton increased its lead in the second, limiting Ole Miss to three made field goals while continuing to get to the free throw line. Foul trouble became an issue as five Rebels recorded at least two personals in the first half. The Ravens went to the charity stripe 19 times, making 14 of them. Meanwhile, freshman KJ Buffen made the only two free throw attempts for Ole Miss in the first half. Although the Rebels held the Ravens to 29.4 percent shooting (5 of 17) in the quarter, Carleton got to the line to outscore Ole Miss 19-9 and take a 45-23 lead into the locker room.

Despite the large deficit, Ole Miss fought hard throughout the entire second half and outscored Carleton in both quarters. The Rebels tallied 23 points in the third to equal their first half output. Bruce Stevens led the way with seven points as the Red and Blue shot 53.5 percent (8 of 15) from the field. Stevens, Davis and Hinson all knocked down threes to help Ole Miss make 50 percent from long range during the quarter.

After being down as many as 26 early in the second half, the Rebels trimmed the deficit down to 12 in the fourth quarter. Davis found his groove from beyond the arc, connecting on a trio of three-pointers throughout the final 10 minutes. Carleton only managed 15 points on 5 of 15 shooting, and the Rebels closed out on the long ball to prevent any of the five three-point attempts from finding the bottom of the net. However, time ran out for Ole Miss, and the Rebels suffered their first loss north of the border.

The Rebels close out their Canada Tour on Thursday night, taking on the University of Ottawa.
