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)

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)
