In games against Vanderbilt, Florida and LSU, the Ole Miss women have fallen victim to lopsided runs that they were unable to overcome.
The return of Murphy Holloway to the lineup made a world of difference for the Ole Miss men’s basketball team Wednesday night against Arkansas. Not only did the junior forward score 19 points and grab 14 rebounds, his uplifting presence brought out the best in his teammates, who arguably played their best game of the season in a 71-63 win over the Razorbacks.
With a win in the Southeastern Conference under their belt the Rebels and Holloway, who had been out since rolling his ankle against Middle Tennessee on Dec. 21, now look to win on the road. Ole Miss is just 2-3 in true road games this year, although the Rebels have won four games away from Oxford this year overall. (January 13, 2012, Page 6A)

Things couldn’t have gone much better for Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy Wednesday night. Not only did he get to witness his daughter, Meagan, perform a great rendition of the National Anthem at the start of the Rebels’ matchup with Arkansas at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum, he was able to watch Murphy Holloway play for the first time since Dec. 21.
Holloway followed up Meagan Kennedy’s fantastic singing with some fantastic play of his own. Not only did Holloway finish with 19 points and 14 rebounds in the 71-63 win for the Rebels, the team played harder than they have in several games with Holloway on the court. Simply put: Holloway is the reason the Rebels are now 1-1 in the Southeastern Conference as opposed to 0-2. (January 12, 2012, Page 6)
