    Rebs face tough test on road at Alabama

    It wasn’t long after the Ole Miss Rebels had just grinded out a win over LSU at home Wednesday night that the focus changed to taking on Alabama on the road Saturday afternoon.

    The Crimson Tide has been one of the most consistent and productive teams in the Southeastern Conference this year, and even though their five-game winning streak came to an end Thursday night at No. 24 Vanderbilt, earning a win over the Tide at Coleman Coliseum is going to be the Rebels’ biggest challenge to date in SEC play.

      Rebels show grit in win over Tigers

      Two weeks ago, a subpar shooting performance would have likely resulted in a loss for the Ole Miss men’s basketball team. But thanks to recent wins over a ranked Kentucky team and road win at Arkansas, the new-look Rebels were able to grind out a 66-60 victory over LSU on Thursday night despite shooting just 38.9 percent from the floor.

            Lady ‘Dores down Senatobia to make Class 4A playoffs

            A return trip to the Class 4A playoffs and the opportunity to earn some revenge later this week is what the Lafayette Lady Commodores gained from their 57-31 win over Senatobia Tuesday night in the District 2-4A tournament at Center Hill.

              A better Buckner translates to more Ws

              Ole Miss’ success on the basketball court this past week happened for several different reasons including the improved play of sophomore forward Reginald Buckner.

              Buckner’s shot-blocking ability was a great strength for the Memphis native even before he helped lead the Rebels to an upset win of then No. 10 Kentucky and Arkansas last week, but his ability to add points, rebounds and minutes to his resume ended up making a huge difference for the Rebels in those two wins.

              Against Arkansas, Buckner blocked eight shots to tie former Ole Miss standout Ansu Sesay for the most in a single game as well as added 12 points, including a 3-point shot, and 11 rebounds to fall just short of his first triple-double. (February 8, 2011, Page 1B)

                  Chargers’ complete effort leads to title

                  The most complete effort of the season on both sides of the court led to yet another division title for the Oxford Chargers Friday afternoon in the regular season finale against West Point.

                  Oxford’s 68-49 win over West Point gave the team another regular season title and more importantly earned them the No. 1 seed in this week’s Division 2-5A tournament that begins Tuesday at West Point. The Lady Chargers also played well in their regular season finale, defeating West Point 60-57 to finish 6-0 in the division and also earn the No. 1 seed in the tournament. (February 7, 2011, Page 3B)

                    Pearl tops Oxford in 5A North Half match

                    An early lead and another valiant effort wasn’t enough to lift the Oxford Chargers past the Pearl Pirates in the Class 5A North Half title match Thursday at Pearl. Despite jumping out to a 1-0 lead in the first half on a goal from Lucian Duchaine, the seven-time state champion Pirates found a way to rally in the second half to post a 3-1 win and advance to Saturday’s 5A state title match.

                    OHS coach Jamie Perkins said he was proud of the way his team competed less than a week after defeating Callaway in a marathon match that was finally decided on penalty kicks. (February 4, 2011, Page 6A)
