Lady Rebels hold off Auburn, snap losing skid

AUBURN, Ala. — Holding a slim 43-39 lead with 3:42 left in the contest, the Ole Miss women’s basketball team went to work on the defensive end and with clutch buckets from A’Queen Hayes and Tia Faleru, the Rebels held on for a 51-46 road win at Auburn — snapping a seven-game winless streak and guaranteeing the Rebels a winning record in the regular season and the possibility of a postseason berth — the first since 2009-10. (February 20, 2015, Page 6A)

          Ole Miss looking for rare victory in Starkville

          It’s mid-February, which means college basketball teams are trending toward the NCAA Tournament, trending away from it or are out of the picture completely. Ole Miss falls in the first category, though a bad week or two can change everything. The Rebels (17-8, 8-4 Southeastern Conference) have won six of their last seven heading into tonight’s game at Mississippi State (8 p.m., ESPN2) and have put together a resume that’s worthy of an at-large bid. (February 19, 2015, Page 6A, 7A)

              Ole Miss gets commitment from top prep QB Patterson

              It’s early, but Ole Miss is piecing together one of the nation’s best recruiting classes for 2016. The Rebels added arguably their most important piece to it Tuesday.

                  Depth helping Ole Miss during Summer’s slump

                   Jarvis Summers hasn’t been himself lately. Ole Miss’ senior point guard has been one of the Southeastern Conference’s top scorers the past couple of seasons, developing a consistent jumper and using his quickness to turn the corner and get to the basket should defenses choose to overextend. But nothing’s falling for the preseason All-SEC selection right now. (February 17, 2015, Page 6)
