Ole Miss makes FTs, hold on to beat Florida

Ole Miss needed every bit of its accuracy from the free throw line Saturday. Jarvis Summers scored a team-high 16 points, including a pair of free throws in the final seconds to put Ole Miss up for good, and the Rebels hung on for a 72-71 win over Florida at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. (January 25, 2015, Page 1B, 4B)

Ole Miss fizzles down the stretch, falls to Bulldogs on road

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia was primed for a letdown. The Bulldogs were tired. They weren’t playing another big rival. There were plenty of empty seats at Stegeman Coliseum. Yet, after a sluggish start, Georgia found a way to pull out its third straight Southeastern Conference win. Marcus Thornton scored 16 points and came up with a huge steal late in the game, J.J. Frazier made a couple of big 3s, and Charles Mann rebounded from a scoreless first half to lead the Bulldogs past Ole Miss, 69-64, on Tuesday night. (January 21, 2015, Page 1B, 4B)

Ole Miss aims to bounce back against pressurized Hogs

Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy was disappointed LSU didn’t extend its defense the length of the court against the Rebels in Wednesday’s game, something LSU has done with regularity this season. It would’ve helped Ole Miss get some easy buckets on the back end, Kennedy thought. It also would’ve aided in the Rebels’ preparation for the constant pressure they’re going to see from Arkansas. (January 16, 2015, Page 6, 7)

Ole Miss ‘lethargic’ in 75-71 loss to LSU

LSU simply had too much firepower for Ole Miss. But a lack of energy and untimely mistakes didn’t do anything to help the Rebels’ cause. Keith Hornsby had a game-high 23 points, LSU’s talented frontcourt duo of Jarell Martin and Jordan Mickey each recorded double-doubles, and the Tigers sent Ole Miss to a 75-71 loss Wednesday night at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. (January 15, 2015, Page 6A)

LSU poses first challenge in important week for Rebels

Ole Miss has already held its own against one collection of future NBA talent. The Rebels will have to do it again to give themselves a chance against LSU. More specifically, Ole Miss will have to contend with the Tigers’ next-level duo of Jordan Mickey and Jarell Martin down low when the teams meet tonight at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum (6 p.m., SEC Network). (January 14, 2015, Page 7)

Players settling into roles, reaping benefits for Ole Miss

As Frank Martin poured over film in advance of South Carolina’s trip to Ole Miss, the Gamecocks’ coach noticed something different about the Rebels. It was going to make life on the road in the Southeastern Conference that much harder. (January 13, 2015, Page 6, 7)

Rebels rout South Carolina for first SEC win

So much for a hangover effect. Four days after going toe-to-toe with No. 1 Kentucky in an overtime loss at Rupp Arena, Ole Miss notched its first Southeastern Conference win in convincing fashion. Jarvis Summers scored a game-high 20 points, Stefan Moody and Sebastian Saiz added 16 and 10 points, respectively, and the Rebels ran past South Carolina, 65-49, on Saturday at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. (January 11, 2015, Page 1B, 4B)

Ole Miss pushes No. 1 Kentucky to brink, falls in OT

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Dominant almost all season and facing expectations of going unbeaten, top-ranked Kentucky looked vulnerable and very beatable against an Ole Miss team intent on pulling off a seismic upset. Wildcats guard Aaron Harrison thwarted the Rebels’ quest by scoring 26 points, including two big free throws with 1:29 remaining in overtime to put Kentucky ahead to stay. Kentucky then withstood three final Ole Miss attempts to rally before escaping with an 89-86 victory Tuesday night to win its Southeastern Conference opener and keep its hopes for a perfect season alive. (January 7, 2015, Page 1B, 3B)

Rebels have to ‘help one another’ against No. 1 UK

Twelve other Southeastern Conference teams will get their shot at No. 1 Kentucky. But Ole Miss will get the first crack at trying to knock John Calipari’s annual collection of five-star recruits and future NBA talent from the ranks of the unbeaten. (January 6, 2015, Page 6)
