Andy Kennedy knows there’s nothing Ole Miss can do about its four-game losing streak to open Southeastern Conference play.
The Ole Miss coach knows it happened. It’s not going away.
While the Rebels can’t change the past, they continued to try and climb out of the early hole with a 69-60 win over Arkansas on Saturday night. Chris Warren, the hero of a last-second win over Kentucky earlier in the week, scored 15 of his 19 points in the second half as the Rebels (15-8, 3-5) pulled away for their third win in four games since the dismal conference start.

Any inability to stop the long-range 3 point shot — in combination to score consistently — led to a lopsided 76-38 loss at the C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum on Sunday for the Ole Miss women against former OM head coach Van Chancellor’s LSU Lady Tigers.
The Lady Tigers (16-9 overall, 6-5 Southeastern Conference) held a 42-26 lead at halftime and never trailed. (February 7, 2011, Page 3B)
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)

While many of the former Rebels will be looking to have a good time and re-connect with former teammates, one in particular will have a bit more in mind.
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)
Ole Miss will look to continue the momentum it gained in a home win over No. 10 Kentucky against Arkansas on Saturday at Bud Walton Arena.
The Rebels’ biggest win under coach Andy Kennedy on Tuesday against the Wildcats was the first win over a team ranked in the Top 10 since 2002. It may also be the spark needed for the team to rebound from a 1-5 start in Southeastern Conference play. (February 4, 2011, Page 6A)
