Ole Miss guard Stefan Moody made some history during his final game at The Pavilion on Senior Night.
Moody dropped a career-high 43 points with six assists and buried six 3-pointers as the Rebels took down in-state rival Mississippi State, 86-78. With his career night, Moody became the first SEC player to score 40-plus points in a game since 2013, according to ESPN.
Moody’s 43-point game is tied for the 13th best single-game performance in program history. He also became the first Rebel to drop 40 points since Gerald Glass poured in 53 points against LSU on March 4, 1989.
Better yet, Moody drew some major props from a former Ole Miss legend, Marshall Henderson, whose career high at Ole Miss was only 39 points.

Moody essentially clinched the SEC’s scoring title with his outstanding performance Wednesday night. He could be a dark horse for the conference’s player of the year award and isn’t a player any team wants to face in the SEC Tournament next week.
