    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)

      Projections put Rebels squarely on bubble

      Ole Miss’ men’s basketball team has played its way back on the bubble, according to those that follow the sport religiously. The Rebels continued their late-season swoon with Saturday’s 86-77 loss to Vanderbilt at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum that really wasn’t that close. Vanderbilt torched Ole Miss from deep (13 of 23 from 3-point range), led by 13 at the half and ran away with it in the second half to hand the Rebels their third loss in four games and their seventh in their own building. (March 9, 2015, Page 6)

            Vanderbilt muddles NCAA picture for Rebels

            Vanderbilt won’t be a part of the NCAA Tournament unless it wins this week’s Southeastern Conference Tournament. The Commodores now have Ole Miss questioning its standing. M.J. Rhett scored 18 points and Jarvis Summers added 16, but Ole Miss couldn’t keep up with an onslaught of long-distance shooting from the Commodores in an 86-77 loss in both teams’ regular-season finale Saturday night at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. (March 8, 2015, Page 1B)

                  JACKSON — A season for a veteran Oxford boys basketball team came to an uncharacteristic end Thursday.

                    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)
