VIDEO: Ole Miss uses Morgan Freeman during in-game promotion

Mississippi v Xavier

JACKSONVILLE, FL - MARCH 19: Head coach Andy Kennedy of the Mississippi Rebels calls out in the first half against the Xavier Musketeers during the second round of the 2015 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena on March 19, 2015 in Jacksonville, Florida.

Ole Miss had Morgan Freeman in the house for its game on Thursday night with Murray State as the Academy Award winner took part in one of the team’s silly timeout promotions.

Appearing in the “Snowball Fight Cam” Freeman showed off his legendary acting chops by fighting off digital snowballs. It would have been even better had Ole Miss opted to use Freeman in the “Shake Cam” but I can understand not wanting to put a famous actor in a sponsored promotion.

Ole Miss pulled out the close win over Murray State. Hopefully if Freeman comes back for another game then we’ll get a video with Randy Kennedy -- head coach Andy Kennedy’s alter ego.
