      Bubble losses help Ole Miss cling to NCAA life

      As ugly as the first 39 minutes and 57 seconds were for the Ole Miss men’s basketball team in its Southeastern Conference Tournament game against South Carolina on Thursday, it looked as if Jarvis Summers’ improbable four-point play was going to save the Rebels and possibly lock them into the NCAA Tournament in the process. (March 15, 2015, Page 1B)

        Late foul dooms Rebels in SEC tourney loss to South Carolina

        NASHVILLE, Tenn. — LaDarius White didn’t think it was a foul. Tyrone Johnson disagreed. But this much is certain: Ole Miss’ time at the Southeastern Conference Tournament is over — and its hopes of getting an invite to the NCAA Tournament may be, too. The Rebels were bounced from the conference tournament with a 60-58 loss to No. 11 seed South Carolina late Thursday night at Bridgestone Arena, but that doesn’t begin to tell the story. (March 13, 2015, Page 6)

          Ole Miss’ NCAA fate up in the air

          NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Leading up this week’s Southeastern Conference Tournament, Ole Miss’ players didn’t want to think about what a win or loss in its tournament opener would mean for their NCAA Tournament chances.

            NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Ole Miss men’s basketball team ultimately just needs to win its Southeastern Conference Tournament opener tonight (8:30 p.m., SEC Network) against South Carolina to feel good — at least for now — about its NCAA Tournament hopes, but there are games to be played in Nashville, Tennessee, and in other conference tournaments involving other bubble teams that Rebel fans may want to keep an eye on as the day unfolds.

              Auburn eliminates Miss St., advances to second round

              NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Mississippi State got its contributions from its regular scorers. So did Auburn. But the Tigers got a whole lot more, and it spelled the end of the season for the Bulldogs. Auburn guard K.C. Ross-Miller matched a season-high with 21 points, and the Tigers’ bench combined for 24 points in a 74-68 victory in the opening game of the Southeastern Conference Tournament on Wednesday at Bridgestone Arena. (March 12, 2015, Page 7)

                Rebels out to help their NCAA case at SEC tourney

                NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A common phrase was repeated by players on Ole Miss’ men’s basketball team shortly after the final tuneup for its Southeastern Conference Tournament opener. The Rebels limped to the finish line of the regular season to put themselves back on the NCAA Tournament bubble. Ole Miss’ third loss in its last four games was an ugly one to a .500 Vanderbilt team that had 80 points before the final media timeout to close a forgettable home slate. (March 12, 2015, Page 7)

                    Defense failing Ole Miss down the stretch

                    Fresh off his team giving up the most it has all season to someone not named Kentucky, it didn’t take M.J. Rhett long to offer an answer as to what’s ailed Ole Miss down the stretch. It was painfully obvious to anyone who watched the Rebels over the weekend, too. (March 10, 2015, Page 7)
