TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Ole Miss had a chance to defeat Alabama in regulation. The Rebels appeared to have an even better opportunity of knocking off the Crimson Tide in the first of two overtime sessions. By the time the second overtime really got going Saturday night at Coleman Coliseum, the Rebels were playing from behind and a late 3-point attempt to tie the game fell completely off the mark.
In the end, Ole Miss fell 69-67 to Alabama in two overtimes, the second time in less than a month the Rebels have played and lost a game in two overtimes in the state of Alabama. (more…) (February 6, 2012, Page 2B)
Saturday’s 66-62 win for the Ole Miss Rebels over South Carolina wasn’t the prettiest piece of basketball ever played at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. Both teams combined for 31 turnovers and shot under 50 percent (although the Rebels were close to breaking even at 49 percent).
Both teams gained momentum only to let the other back into the game. In short, it was the most ugly — and at the same time exciting — game of the year for Ole Miss fans simply because of the outcome. (January 30, 2012, Page 1B)

Thursday night’s Southeastern Conference matchup with No. 14 Florida was a tale of two halves for the Ole Miss Rebels.
Everything that could go right for the Rebels did in the first 20 minutes of action at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum.
They hit shots at an exceptional rate, got rebounds on both ends of the floor and did a great job of slowing down the SEC’s top offense to the tune of 28 points. But as good as the Rebels were in the opening half, the Gators proved to be that much better when it counted down the stretch. (more…) (January 27, 2012, Page 6A)
The word important only begins to describe what the next 48 hours means for the Ole Miss men’s basketball team. With two games at home — the first coming tonight against No. 14 Florida — there has not been a better opportunity for the Rebels to make up some ground in the Southeastern Conference standings and race to make the NCAA Tournament.

Several seasons of frustrating losses to Mississippi State were finally put to rest for the Ole Miss Rebels Wednesday night at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum.
For a team that had lost five straight games to the No. 18 Bulldogs, including three at home, Wednesday’s 75-68 win in front of a near capacity crowd felt extra special even if Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy talked about it being just another game on the schedule. (January 19, 2012, Page 6)
