COLUMN: SEC doesn’t care about its basketball? Please

Sports Editor Davis Potter explains why there is a common misconception among the majority that feel the Southeastern Conference does not put forth as much effort towards basketball as they do football, and says that’s simply not true based on Mississippi State’s hire of Ben Howland on Monday. (March 24, 2015, Page 6, 7)

Careers come to ‘emotional’ end for Rebel seniors

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)

Stainbrook too much for Ole Miss bigs to handle inside

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy saw Matt Stainbrook from afar. His players got an up-close look. But they all came away with the same overriding thought: Xavier’s center isn’t your typical big man. (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)

Rebels rally past BYU, advance in NCAAs

DAYTON, Ohio — Ole Miss’ loudest offensive explosion of the season came at the right time. The Rebels poured in 62 points in the final 20 minutes to erase a 17-point halftime deficit and advance in the NCAA Tournament with a 94-90 victory over BYU in the First Four at the University of Dayton Arena on Tuesday. (March 18, 2015, Page 6)

OM tightens up, gets physical to extend season

DAYTON, Ohio — One part of the equation was obvious. The other part? Not so much for anybody that’s followed Ole Miss basketball this season. The Rebels had to get some stops if they wanted any chance of pulling off one of their biggest comebacks of the season against BYU on Tuesday and prevent themselves from going one and out in the NCAA Tournament. They also had to start making some shots on the other end to cut into a 17-point halftime hole. Once Ole Miss figured out it could increase the odds of putting the ball in the basket by imposing its will inside, the Rebels went to work. (March 18, 2015, Page 6)

Rebels bracing for BYU’s long-range acumen

DAYTON, Ohio — The good news for Ole Miss is the Rebels have already seen a team that’s eerily similar offensively to BYU this season. The bad news? Ole Miss didn’t do much to stop it. The Rebels can’t let the not-too-distant history repeat itself if they want to advance in the NCAA Tournament. (March 17, 2015, Page 6)
