    Rebels look to set the tempo against Xavier

    JACKSONVILLE Fla. — Not many teams were able to keep up with BYU’s up-tempo pace and shooting ability this season, but Ole Miss was one of them. Led by the perimeter trio of Stefan Moody, Jarvis Summers and LaDarius White, the Rebels are scoring 73.3 points per game and nearly reached that total alone (62) in the second half Tuesday against the Cougars with a formula that’s worked all season in their wins — hit shots, penetrate when defenses have to extend and speed the opponent up with their patented 1-3-1 half-court trap. (March 19, 2015, Page 6)

              OM tightens up, gets physical to extend season

              DAYTON, Ohio — One part of the equation was obvious. The other part? Not so much for anybody that’s followed Ole Miss basketball this season. The Rebels had to get some stops if they wanted any chance of pulling off one of their biggest comebacks of the season against BYU on Tuesday and prevent themselves from going one and out in the NCAA Tournament. They also had to start making some shots on the other end to cut into a 17-point halftime hole.
