Georgia had the hot hand from the perimeter, Marcus Thornton was a force down the stretch, and the Bulldogs cooled off Ole Miss with a 76-72 victory Wednesday night at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. (more…) (February 25, 2015)
Getting to Wednesday’s basketball game between Ole Miss and Georgia at the Tad Pad is going to be a risk for some, and the school is giving a break to those who feel they can make it to the coliseum safely. (more…) (February 25, 2015)
The Rebels have won eight of their last nine games and are coming off a 2-0 week against Mississippi State and Tennessee. The win over the Vols on Saturday kept Ole Miss (19-8, 10-4 Southeastern Conference) in a tie for third place with Texas A&M in the SEC standings and in line for a double bye in next month’s SEC Tournament with four games to go, though the Rebels would technically be the tournament’s third seed if it started today with their head-to-head win over A&M on Feb. 4.
Those accomplishments made the Lafayette High baseball team’s 2014 season a success, but the Commodores’ ultimate goal of an MHSAA Class 4A state title was cut short when they were bounced from the playoffs by eventual champion West Lauderdale.
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. The story was the same Monday inside the Tad Pad as both teams battled back and forth but the ending was different as the Rebels upset the Lady Wildcats 67-59. It was also win No. 400 inside the ‘Tad Pad’ for the women’s program. (February 24, 2015, Page 6)
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.

Ole Miss is one of the hotter men’s basketball teams around. (more…) (February 23, 2015)
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)
