Ole Miss aims to stay on track in finale

Ole Miss already has one win this week. Another would all but sew up the Rebels’ spot in the NCAA Tournament. The Rebels (20-10, 11-6 Southeastern Conference) recovered from a rare winless week with a win at Alabama on Tuesday that has them positioned for a double bye in next week’s SEC Tournament. That win coupled with losses by Georgia, LSU and Texas A&M have the Rebels slotted for the No. 3 seed should they beat Vanderbilt on Saturday at home (8 p.m., SEC Network) to close the regular season. (March 6, 2015, Page 6, 7)

      TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Ole Miss helped itself Tuesday night, and the Rebels finally found their collective stroke to do it.

        Chargers adjusting to time, place for Class 5A quarterfinals

        Oxford’s boys basketball team didn’t lose a game in its own gym all season, but the Chargers won’t have the advantage of a home crowd when they take on Wayne County in the MHSAA Class 5A quarterfinals. Nobody has that luxury at this point. The playoffs have shifted to Jackson, where Oxford (26-4) and Wayne County (11-12) will be the first teams to play at Jackson State University on Thursday at 9 a.m. Should the Chargers win, they will move to the Mississippi Coliseum to face either Ridgeland or West Harrison in next week’s semifinals. (March 4, 2015, Page 1B)

            Rebels’ young quarterbacks on alert with addition of Kelly

            Even when Bo Wallace was still in an Ole Miss uniform, the question lingered: Will it be Ryan Buchanan on DeVante Kincade that prevails in the competition to replace the Rebels’ quarterback in 2015? Turns out it may not be either one. Another signal caller is set to enter the mix in East Mississippi Community College quarterback Chad Kelly, who signed with the Rebels in December and still has his scholarship despite being arrested in the same month. The addition of Kelly blows the race wide open when spring practice starts later today. (March 3, 2015, Page 6, 7)

              Rebels look to rebound from setbacks at Alabama

              Ole Miss came crashing back to earth last week. Now with their NCAA Tournament hopes possibly depending on it, the Rebels will try to make up for it down the stretch. The Rebels lost back-to-back games for the first time all season with setbacks at home to Georgia on Wednesday and on the road to LSU on Saturday. Before that, Ole Miss had won eight of nine and was a team trending for the Big Dance. According on the latest bracket projections from national pundits, Ole Miss would still be in the field if the tournament started today, but with less than two weeks until Selection Sunday, the margin for error has evaporated. (March 3, 2015, Page 7)

                TOURNEY WATCH: Ole Miss sliding after winless week

                Ole Miss would still be a part of of the NCAA Tournament if it started today, but a rough week hasn’t left much — if any — room for error down the stretch. (more…) (March 2, 2015)

                  TENNIS PREVIEW: Chargers set out for another state championshop

                  When Oxford’s tennis team officially began practicing for the upcoming season earlier this year, there wasn’t any dialogue between players and their coach about goals and what needed to be done over the course of the year to ultimately achieve them. That would be wasted breath for the Chargers. (March 2, 2015, Page 6)

                    Jones, OHS overwhelm Clarksdale in playoff opener

                    Late in Oxford’s MHSAA Class 5A second-round playoff game Saturday night, Cortez Jones took an outlet pass from teammate Josh Gibbs on the wing in transition. He could’ve tried to beat the only defender in front of him to the rim, but Jones set himself behind the 3-point line and drained another shot instead. Oxford’s senior guard was in the zone. Jones scored from every spot on the floor and had a career night once he was done, finishing with a game-high 27 points and helping the Chargers advance to this week’s state quarterfinals with a 76-57 victory over Clarksdale in their final home game of the season. Oxford (26-4) will play Wayne County in the quarterfinals Thursday morning at 9 at Jackson State University. (March 1, 2015, Page 1B, 4B)
