Rebel Hoops In The Pros

While Chris Warren and Zach Graham were leading the way in Oxford this past season, Ole Miss Hoops displayed quite a presence in the global basketball community, as well. With most of the overseas hoops seasons now concluded, we decided to update all you fans on how our former Rebels are doing professionally.

In 2010-11, there were 11 former Ole Miss players competing professionally in 12 different countries. Among them was Terrico White of the NBA's Detroit Pistons, the Bulgarian League's Player of the Year Aaron Harper, All-Germany first teamer Derrick Allen and All-Hungary first teamer Bam Doyne. Additionally, former Rebel Elston Turner was an assistant coach with the NBA's Houston Rockets.
