Oxford’s Hankins signs to run XC, track at Mississippi College

Emily Hankins was torn. The Oxford High senior’s performances on the trail and the track over the years netted her scholarship offers from Mississippi College and Delta State. Hankins went back and forth weighing the pros and cons of each school before ultimately signing with Mississippi College on Thursday in the high school library. (November 14, 2014, Page 6A)

    ‘Dores aim to slow down Cleveland again

    Cleveland isn’t much for trickeration. The Wildcats have made a living pounding opponents into submission this season, racking up more than 4,100 rushing yards. Cleveland is winning by an average of 30 points per game with its veer offense with last week’s 31-point output against Amory being the lowest point total for the Wildcats all season. There’s no secret as to what Lafayette will be dealing with when the teams square off in the second round of the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs Friday night at William L. Buford Stadium. (November 13, 2014, Page 6A)

      Ole Miss gets back to basics in first practice of open date

      Ole Miss has started dabbling in the game plan for Arkansas, but with the matchup against the Razorbacks nearly two weeks away, the Rebels have some time to refine the fundamentals that get lost over the course of a 12-game regular season. The Rebels spent most of Tuesday’s practice getting back to the basics, much to the pleasure of coach Hugh Freeze. (November 12, 2014, Page 1B)

        Bye week will ‘certainly help’ Rebels heal for final stretch

        It was tempting, but Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze knew he couldn’t. Senior quarterback Bo Wallace entered Saturday’s game against Presbyterian College just 262 yards shy of breaking Eli Manning’s school record for total offense. Wallace accumulated 155 total yards in two quarters, but with Ole Miss holding a 35-0 lead at the break, his day was done. At this point of the season, health trumps statistics. (November 11, 2014, Page 6)

          Rebels overwhelm Presbyterian College in rout

          No. 12 Ole Miss jumped on its lone Football Championship Subdivision opponent of the season, got its backups a ton of snaps and overwhelmed Presbyterian College for a 48-0 win in front of 60,546 fans clad mostly in red and blue. Ole Miss (8-2 overall) had a handful of starters sitting with injuries, but it didn’t stop the Rebels from turning in gobs of big plays against the overmatched Blue Hose (5-5) and ending a two-game losing streak heading into its second bye week of the season. (November 9, 2014, Page 1B)

            COLUMN: Easy win follows script for OM

            That was easy enough. Ole Miss showed no signs of a hangover after a pair of heart-stopping losses that could’ve made it hard for anybody to blame the Rebels if they did come out lethargic against an opponent they were going to beat by however many points they wanted to anyway. (November 9, 2014, Page 1B)

              Commodores blast Houston in playoff opener

              Lafayette’s game against Houston on Friday night quickly turned into a tuneup for its next opponent in the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs. The Commodores rushed for 386 yards, kept Houston’s offense from doing much of anything and cruised to their sixth straight win with a 41-16 victory over the Hilltoppers at William L. Buford Stadium, earning a second- round home date with Cleveland, a 31-6 winner over Amory, this Friday. (November 9, 2014, Page 5B)

                  Sisk in line to start tonight’s exhibition for Lady Rebels

                  It hasn’t taken Erika Sisk long to prove herself. The former Oxford High standout officially joined the Ole Miss’ women’s basketball team as a scholarship player back in April and has put together a solid summer and preseason camp. It’s been so good that coach Matt Insell said the 5-foot-6 sophomore is in line to be the Rebels’ starting 2-guard when they take on Christian Brothers in an exhibition today at 5 p.m. at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. (November 7, 2014, Page 6A)

                    Houston getting Commodores’ full attention

                    Lafayette is a heavy favorite in its MHSAA Class 4A playoff opener. At least that’s how its appears on paper. The Commodores, fresh off their fifth straight win and a Region 2-4A regular-season title, will be the top seed hosting a No. 4 seed when Houston visits William L. Buford Stadium on Friday. The Hilltoppers (5-6, 2-3 Region 4-4A) took a 34-10 beating to Noxubee County their last time out. (November 6, 2014, Page 6A)
