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)

Moody, White help Rebels end skid at Alabama

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Ole Miss helped itself Tuesday night, and the Rebels finally found their collective stroke to do it. Stefan Moody and LaDarius White combined for 44 points, and the Rebels shot 47.4 percent from the floor to get back in the win column with an 82-74 victory over Alabama at Coleman Coliseum. (March 4, 2015, Page 1B, 3B)

Rebels look to rebound from setbacks at Alabama

Ole Miss came crashing back to earth last week. Now with their NCAA Tournament hopes possibly depending on it, the Rebels will try to make up for it down the stretch. The Rebels lost back-to-back games for the first time all season with setbacks at home to Georgia on Wednesday and on the road to LSU on Saturday. Before that, Ole Miss had won eight of nine and was a team trending for the Big Dance. According on the latest bracket projections from national pundits, Ole Miss would still be in the field if the tournament started today, but with less than two weeks until Selection Sunday, the margin for error has evaporated. (March 3, 2015, Page 7)

Ole Miss drops second straight in loss at LSU

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU guard Tim Quarterman only hoped his sore left ankle wouldn’t render him a defensive liability against Mississippi’s leading scorer, Stefan Moody. Quarterman did more than just hold up against Moody on Saturday. One day after twisting his ankle in practice, he turned in the first triple-double by an LSU player since Shaquille O’Neal in 1992. Quarterman had 18 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, and LSU pulled into a fourth-place tie in the Southeastern Conference with a 73-63 victory over Ole Miss. (March 1, 2015, Page 1B)

Kennedy wants more energy from Rebs down the stretch

It’s hard for Andy Kennedy to fathom, even if he knows the effort is there. Whether he’s looking down the bench, gathering his team in a huddle or working to get what he thinks are advantageous matchups for his players on the court, Ole Miss’ men’s basketball coach isn’t seeing enough want-to from a team that should be showing plenty being that it’s heavily in the mix for a berth in the NCAA Tournament. (February 27, 2015, Page 6)

Do the little things, and the big will follow

You’ve heard the advice before: take care of the little things and the big things usually take care of themselves. Editor Don Whitten looks at how the Ole Miss men’s basketball team has turned that philosophy into winning ways this season, and then gives examples of how we all can do that for ourselves. (February 27, 2015, Page 4)

Bulldogs’ inside, outside combo cools off Ole Miss

Ole Miss didn’t stop much of anything Georgia did on offense and once again couldn’t make enough shots to overcome it on its home floor. As a result, Ole Miss suffered a rare fate Wednesday night. Georgia knocked down 11 3-pointers, Marcus Thornton was a force down the stretch, and the Bulldogs cooled off Ole Miss with a 76-72 victory at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. It was just the Rebels’ second loss in their last 10 games and just their fifth loss in league play, two of which have come to the Bulldogs. (February 26, 2015, Page 5A)

Rebels brush off tourney talk with UGA up next

Ole Miss is one of the hotter teams around. All the winning has the Rebels trending for the postseason.

The Rebels have won eight of their last nine games and are coming off a 2-0 week against Mississippi State and Tennessee. The win over the Vols on Saturday kept Ole Miss (19-8, 10-4 Southeastern Conference) in a tie for third place with Texas A&M in the SEC standings and in line for a double bye in next month’s SEC Tournament with four games to go, though the Rebels would technically be the tournament’s third seed if it started today with their head-to-head win over A&M on Feb. 4.

Ole Miss hangs on to down Tennessee in final seconds

If Ole Miss was going to avoid a loss at home to a team in the bottom half of the Southeastern Conference standings, the Rebels were going to have to do it with defense. Ole Miss came up with just enough. Josh Richardson’s jumper missed as time expired, and the Rebels hung on for a 59-57 win over Tennessee on Saturday at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum, putting another top-100 RPI feather in their proverbial cap in the process. (February 22, 2015, Page 1B, 4B)

Moody’s career night lifts Rebels to sweep of MSU

STARKVILLE — Stefan Moody didn’t care about Ole Miss’ history at Humphrey Coliseum. All he was concerned with was helping the Rebels continue their upward trajectory for the NCAA Tournament. The junior guard certainly did his part to keep Ole Miss headed in that direction. Moody scored a career-high 29 points, and Ole Miss picked up just its eighth win all-time in Starkville with a 71-65 win over Mississippi State on Thursday at Humphrey Coliseum. (February 20, 2015, Page 6A)
