Xavier bounces Rebels from NCAA Tournament

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — There wasn’t any comeback this time. Ole Miss’ NCAA Tournament game against Xavier on Thursday at Veterans Memorial Arena followed a similar early script that its game against BYU did two days earlier in the First Four. The Rebels shot the same 30 percent in the first half against the Musketeers that they did Tuesday. But Ole Miss scored 62 points in the final 20 minutes against the Cougars to wipe away a 17-point halftime deficit and advance. But the 11th-seeded Rebels never came close to recapturing that collective touch in north Florida, and Xavier’s 12-point halftime lead turned into a 76-57 victory that ended the Rebels’ season. (March 20, 2015, Page 1B)

Rebels look to set the tempo against Xavier

JACKSONVILLE Fla. — Not many teams were able to keep up with BYU’s up-tempo pace and shooting ability this season, but Ole Miss was one of them. Led by the perimeter trio of Stefan Moody, Jarvis Summers and LaDarius White, the Rebels are scoring 73.3 points per game and nearly reached that total alone (62) in the second half Tuesday against the Cougars with a formula that’s worked all season in their wins — hit shots, penetrate when defenses have to extend and speed the opponent up with their patented 1-3-1 half-court trap. (March 19, 2015, Page 6)
