COLUMN: Rebels will go as far as big 3 take them

Sports Editor Davis Potter takes a look at Ole Miss’ chances in the NCAA tournament and say they will hinge on the play of Jarvis Summer, Stefan Moody and LaDarius White (March 16, 2015, Page 6)

Bubble losses help Ole Miss cling to NCAA life

As ugly as the first 39 minutes and 57 seconds were for the Ole Miss men’s basketball team in its Southeastern Conference Tournament game against South Carolina on Thursday, it looked as if Jarvis Summers’ improbable four-point play was going to save the Rebels and possibly lock them into the NCAA Tournament in the process. (March 15, 2015, Page 1B)

Late foul dooms Rebels in SEC tourney loss to South Carolina

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — LaDarius White didn’t think it was a foul. Tyrone Johnson disagreed. But this much is certain: Ole Miss’ time at the Southeastern Conference Tournament is over — and its hopes of getting an invite to the NCAA Tournament may be, too. The Rebels were bounced from the conference tournament with a 60-58 loss to No. 11 seed South Carolina late Thursday night at Bridgestone Arena, but that doesn’t begin to tell the story. (March 13, 2015, Page 6)

Ole Miss’ NCAA fate up in the air

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Leading up this week’s Southeastern Conference Tournament, Ole Miss’ players didn’t want to think about what a win or loss in its tournament opener would mean for their NCAA Tournament chances. Minutes after the Rebels suffered the latter Thursday night against one of the league’s bottom feeders, that’s all that was left for them to do. (March 13, 2015, Page 6)

March Madness is right upon us

After Thursday night’s last-second loss, the Ole Miss Rebels and their fans will be watching scores while sitting on the “bubble” for an NCAA tourney bid. We hope Ole Miss is judged by its positives this season and not its disappointing finish. (March 13, 2015, Page 4)

Rebels out to help their NCAA case at SEC tourney

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A common phrase was repeated by players on Ole Miss’ men’s basketball team shortly after the final tuneup for its Southeastern Conference Tournament opener. The Rebels limped to the finish line of the regular season to put themselves back on the NCAA Tournament bubble. Ole Miss’ third loss in its last four games was an ugly one to a .500 Vanderbilt team that had 80 points before the final media timeout to close a forgettable home slate. (March 12, 2015, Page 7)

Ole Miss guard Moody wins Howell Trophy

Ole Miss junior guard Stefan Moody won the CSpire Howell Trophy Monday at a luncheon held by the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame in Jackson. The award is given annually to the state’s best collegiate men’s basketball player. (March 10, 2015, Page 6)

Defense failing Ole Miss down the stretch

Fresh off his team giving up the most it has all season to someone not named Kentucky, it didn’t take M.J. Rhett long to offer an answer as to what’s ailed Ole Miss down the stretch. It was painfully obvious to anyone who watched the Rebels over the weekend, too. (March 10, 2015, Page 7)

Vanderbilt muddles NCAA picture for Rebels

Vanderbilt won’t be a part of the NCAA Tournament unless it wins this week’s Southeastern Conference Tournament. The Commodores now have Ole Miss questioning its standing. M.J. Rhett scored 18 points and Jarvis Summers added 16, but Ole Miss couldn’t keep up with an onslaught of long-distance shooting from the Commodores in an 86-77 loss in both teams’ regular-season finale Saturday night at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. (March 8, 2015, Page 1B)

Ole Miss aims to stay on track in finale

Ole Miss already has one win this week. Another would all but sew up the Rebels’ spot in the NCAA Tournament. The Rebels (20-10, 11-6 Southeastern Conference) recovered from a rare winless week with a win at Alabama on Tuesday that has them positioned for a double bye in next week’s SEC Tournament. That win coupled with losses by Georgia, LSU and Texas A&M have the Rebels slotted for the No. 3 seed should they beat Vanderbilt on Saturday at home (8 p.m., SEC Network) to close the regular season. (March 6, 2015, Page 6, 7)
