OXFORD, Miss. –On Ole Miss women’s basketball’s favorite day of the year, the Rebels emerged victorious thanks to two big double-doubles from Madison Scott and Tyia Singleton in a 66-52 Kids Day win over Jacksonville on Wednesday morning.

The iconic Children’s Day crowd did not disappoint, setting a new overall attendance record for the Ole Miss women’s basketball program of 8,958.

Scott and Singleton also led the attack together, both combining more than half of Ole Miss’s points. Scott set a new season high in points (19) and a career high in rebounds (17) for his fourth double-double this season. Singleton also updated his career high in rebounds (15) with 12 points to give him a second double-double this year.

Ole Miss (9-2) remains unbeaten on the annual Children’s Day, holding an impressive 19-0 record when the kids arrive at the SJB Pavilion. The Rebels continued the tradition by holding Jacksonville (5-4) to a 32.8 field goal percentage. Ole Miss outshot the Dolphins 48-32.

The first quarter was an even battle between the two teams, with both offenses completing just five field goals. At the end of the first, it was a draw at 13-13.

The second quarter brought the defense out of Ole Miss, keeping the Dolphins at their game-low shooting percentage at 29.4%. The Rebels moved the ball on the offensive end, going 16-2 in six minutes of the second to give them a six-point advantage at halftime. Heading into the second half, Ole Miss had four players close to scoring in double figures with Angel Baker, Destiny Salary, Scott and Singleton all with at least six points.

Scott brought out his halftime magic, going 4 of 5 from the field for 10 points while grabbing five rebounds in the third quarter alone. Singleton also landed five more boards to put her in double digits in rebounds. Ole Miss’s offense edged the Dolphins by 10 points in third, the biggest quarterback gap of the contest.

In the final 10 minutes of the game, Baker added six more points to his tally to give him a total of 18 points, his seventh double-digit game this year and third in a row. Thanks to Baker’s offensive production, the Rebels earned their ninth victory of the season.
