News and Notes, Ole Miss Edition

The Ole Miss basketball program received some good news and some bad news on Monday:

First, according to Gary Parrish of, Rebels freshman guard
Terrico White has decided to return to school for his sophomore season and not enter the NBA Draft. The 6-5 White was the SEC Freshman of the Year. He averaged 13.7 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game this past season.

On the other hand, Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy announced today that junior guard
David Huertas is leaving the Rebels to pursue a professional career in Puerto Rico. “We appreciate all that David contributed during his two seasons with us, and we wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors,” Kennedy said in a statement. Huertas, who averaged 18.4 points per game last season, transferred to Ole Miss after one season at Florida. “I want to thank all my coaches and everyone at Ole Miss for the best three years of my life,” Huertas said. “After four years in college, I am ready to move into my life as an adult and be able to keep playing basketball and be with my family at the same time.” The 6-5 Huertas is the second starter to leave the team in the past month, as forward Malcolm White announced he was transferring in March.
