Depth helping Ole Miss during Summer’s slump

 Jarvis Summers hasn’t been himself lately. Ole Miss’ senior point guard has been one of the Southeastern Conference’s top scorers the past couple of seasons, developing a consistent jumper and using his quickness to turn the corner and get to the basket should defenses choose to overextend. But nothing’s falling for the preseason All-SEC selection right now. (February 17, 2015, Page 6)

    Watkins’ late basket lifts Arkansas past Ole Miss

    Saturday’s game between a pair of NCAA Tournament hopefuls at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum went back and forth from the start. But the visitors got to set up their offense one last time and sent Ole Miss to another home loss. Manuale Watkins hit a baseline floater with 8 seconds left to allow No. 24 Arkansas to get out of the Tad Pad with a 71-70 victory, snapping a six-game winning streak for the Rebels. (February 15, 2015, Page 1B)

      Defer’s career game leads WVHS to Senior Night win

      WATER VALLEY — Skyler Defer scored, dunked, bled and even lost some of the food he ate earlier in the day. Water Valley’s senor guard did whatever it took to go out a winner in his final home game. Defer accounted for nearly half of the Blue Devils’ offense, dropping a career-high 40 points to help Water Valley overcome a furious second-half rally by M.S. Palmer in a 90-83 victory Friday on Senior Night at the WVHS gym. (February 15, 2015, Page 4B)

          Ole Miss preparing to see Gators’ Frazier in rematch tonight

          Florida coach Billy Donovan has said his top scorer won’t suit up tonight against Ole Miss. Andy Kennedy isn’t convinced. Michael Frazier II left the Gators’ game against Kentucky on Saturday midway through the second half after suffering a high ankle sprain. Frazier, who’s averaging 13.2 points per game, had 10 points before going down with the injury. Donovan said Frazier has been in a walking boot this week as Florida prepared for the rematch against the Rebels in Gainesville, Florida (6 p.m., ESPN), according to The Associated Press. (February 12, 2015, Page 5A, 6A)

            International Bowl ‘awesome experience’ for Johnson

            Eli Johnson almost passed up an opportunity to represent his country on the football field. Looking back, he’s glad he didn’t.

Canada was the opponent in a game that showcased more than 100 of North America’s top high school juniors. (February 11, 2015, Page 1B)

                COLUMN: Rebels’ road success will only help in chase for NCAA Tournament berth

                If you’re to believe the folks that cover college basketball for a living, Ole Miss would be a part of the NCAA Tournament if it started today. ESPN bracketologist Joe Lundari last updated his field of 68 this morning and has Ole Miss as a 10 seed facing seventh-seeded Indiana in Omaha, Nebraska. Same for CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm, who revised his tournament projections Sunday night and had the Rebels on the 10 line, though against a different opponent (SMU).
