    Ole Miss’ Thomas honored by SEC

    For the second week in a row, a Rebel middle blocker has been named the Southeastern Conference’s Defensive Player of the Week, when the league announced junior Regina Thomas as a winner of the weekly award on Monday.

    Thomas helped lead Ole Miss (14-5, 8-2 SEC) to a pair of wins over the weekend including a 3-0 shutout of No. 12 LSU and a win over Arkansas. The victories put Ole Miss atop the SEC Western Division standings and second in the overall league standings halfway through conference play. The Texas native averaged 1.43 blocks per set on the weekend as she put down 10 blocks – a team-high five blocks in both sets – to help the Rebels run their win streak out to five consecutive matches. (October 19, 2010, Page 9)

      Penalties, Richardson do in Rebs

      Ole Miss proved to be a hospitable guest Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

      Critical penalties, a slow first half and a busted tackle on Trent Richardson’s 85-yard touchdown reception proved to be too much on Saturday as the Ole Miss Rebels fell at No. 8 Alabama 23-10.

      By the end of the game, the Rebels, who entered the game as the Southeastern Conference’s least-penalized team, committed 10 penalties for 106 yards. (October 18, 2010, Page 1B)

        Rebs stacking building blocks with defensive effort

        Heading into Saturday’s game, it would be have been fair to say Ole Miss’ defense had been a liability, allowing a league-worst 32.6 points per game.

        That wasn’t the case at all on Saturday at Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium as the Rebels held a Tide team that had been averaging 35 points to 23, its second-lowest output of the season.

        Ole Miss also held Alabama to 97.5 fewer yards rushing (100) than its average dictated.

        With the exception of Trent Richardson’s 85-yard touchdown on third-and-long, the Rebels played sound defensively and swarmed to the ball carrier when either Richardson or Mark Ingram had the ball.

        Following the game, the coaching staff agreed it was a performance the team can build on moving forward. (October 18, 2010, Page 1B)

          Liggins-Gooch connection too much for MCHS Trojans

          Anfernee Gooch’s diminutive size can be misleading.

          The Millington Central  Trojans discovered that the hard way as the Lafayette Commodores routed the Trojans 35-6 at Mooney Boswell Field, Millington Memorial Stadium on Friday night.

          By the time the game was over, Gooch, listed at 5-foot-6, had racked up 172 receiving yards and four touchdowns. (October 18, 2010, Page 1B)

            Chargers top Tigers in region rivalry game

            Longtime coaching rivals Johnny Hill of Oxford and Anthony Jenkins of Hernando played another chess match Friday night at Bobby Holcomb Field and, in the end, it was Hill’s Chargers that made more right moves in a 31-19 victory.

            Oxford scored two touchdowns in the first quarter to jump ahead to stay and added two more scores in the final period to turn back a rally by the visiting Tigers in the game that carried postseason playoff implications. The Chargers evened their Region 1-5A record at 2-2 and improved to 5-3 overall; Hernando dropped to 4-4 and 2-2. (October 18, 2010, Page 1B)

              Defense, special teams lift WVHS past Cougars

                Lady Rebels sitting pretty after sweep

                It’s been three seasons since Ole Miss’ volleyball program last graced an NCAA Tournament bracket.

                Following Sunday’s hard-fought 3-1 (25-13, 25-20, 22-25, 25-22) victory over Arkansas at the Gillom Sports Complex, the Lady Rebels appear to have positioned themselves for a return trip to the tournament.

                The win capped a successful weekend that began with a 3-0 (25-21, 25-18, 25-18) victory against No. 12 LSU on national television and extended Ole Miss’ winning streak to five matches.

                With an 8-2 league record (and 14-5 overall), Ole Miss hopes it has done enough halfway through the conference schedule to legitimize its tournament hopes. (October 18, 2010, Page 3B)
