    Lady Rebels look to keep NCAA hopes alive

    A week ago the Ole Miss women’s basketball team’s postseason aspirations appeared to have gone up in smoke due a seven-game slide. Now those same postseason goals have been resurrected thanks to a three-game winning streak that included wins over No. 13 Kentucky and LSU on Monday and Thursday. If they want to continue their upward trajectory the Rebels will have to find a way to beat No. 11 Mississippi State in the regular season finale today in Starkville (1 p.m., FSN). (March 1, 2015, Page 3B)

        Lady Rebels hold off LSU for third straight win

        It was senior night for the Ole Miss women’s basketball team and it was appropriate that one of their three seniors play a role in the outcome of the game. With less than 10 seconds remaining forward Tia Faleru made two free throws to put the Rebels up 58-57 then were able to make a defensive stop on the other to defeat LSU by that score Thursday night inside C.M. ‘Tad’ Smith Coliseum. (February 27, 2015, Page 6)

          NCAA tourney berth still in Lady Rebels’ sights

          The last time the Ole Miss women’s basketball team and LSU met was on Jan. 29 when the Tigers dominated the Rebels for a 70-41 victory in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It was the lowest scoring output of the season for Ole Miss and the fourth loss of a seven-game skid.  Tonight, Ole Miss (16-11, 6-8 Southeastern Conference) hopes the outcome will be a little different when the Rebels host LSU inside C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum (6 p.m., SEC Network +). (February 26, 2015, Page 5A)

            SOFTBALL PREVIEW: Chargers approach season with new faces, attitude

            Oxford High’s 2014 softball season was not one with a lot of highlights. The Chargers finished third in the Division 2-5A standings and got swept by eventual state champion Neshoba Central in the second round of the Class 5A Playoffs. This season brings a new campaign and a fresh outlook for the Chargers, who felt they didn’t have the right approach at times least year. (February 26, 2015, Page 6A)

              The offense was in short supply again for the No. 18 Ole Miss baseball team, but the Rebels mustered just enough to defeat Arkansas State, 2-1, Tuesday afternoon at Oxford-University Stadium.

                Lady Rebels upset No. 13 Kentucky in rematch

                The first contest between the Ole Miss women’s basketball team and No. 13 Kentucky went down to the wire with the Wildcats pulling away late.

                  SOFTBALL PREVIEW: ‘Dores looking to build on historic campaign

                  Last season, the Lafayette High softball team was two games away from playing for a state championship until it ran into a Houston team that swept the Commodores in the North Half series. The Commodores want to get back there this year and get further, but that could be easier said than done as they lost a good portion of their lineup due to graduation, including ace pitcher Avery McCullough and her battery mate, Rae Drewery. (February 24, 2015, Page 6)

                    Defense aids Rebels in series win over Wright St.

                    On a day where offense was tough to come by it was defense that made the play when it mattered most. No. 18 Ole Miss beat Wright State 3-2 in Game 2 of Sunday double header thanks to a double play that started with shortstop Errol Robinson snagging a liner hit by Raider Andrew McCafferty then tossing it to second baseman Tate Blackman for the final out and securing the series win. The Rebels (4-2) dropped the first game of the day by a score of 3-1 to create the rubber match. Game 2 was a shortened seven-inning affair. (February 23, 2015, Page 6)
