The No. 18 Ole Miss men’s tennis team shut out Southern Miss 6-0 Saturday in front of nearly 400 fans at the Gillom Sports Center to begin the 2011 season.“I want to thank the fans, it was an unbelievable crowd when you take into consideration that it was a late planned match and school is not in session,” Ole Miss coach Billy Chadwick said. “We are very appreciative of the fans.”
Southern Miss had only five players available, therefore the teams played two doubles and five singles matches.
The Rebels welcomed back 2009 SEC Tournament MVP Kalle Norberg to the lineup and got off to a great start in doubles. (January 24, 2011, Page 7)
