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)

Ole Miss looking for rare victory in Starkville

It’s mid-February, which means college basketball teams are trending toward the NCAA Tournament, trending away from it or are out of the picture completely. Ole Miss falls in the first category, though a bad week or two can change everything. The Rebels (17-8, 8-4 Southeastern Conference) have won six of their last seven heading into tonight’s game at Mississippi State (8 p.m., ESPN2) and have put together a resume that’s worthy of an at-large bid. (February 19, 2015, Page 6A, 7A)

Depth helping Ole Miss during Summer’s slump

 Jarvis Summers hasn’t been himself lately. Ole Miss’ senior point guard has been one of the Southeastern Conference’s top scorers the past couple of seasons, developing a consistent jumper and using his quickness to turn the corner and get to the basket should defenses choose to overextend. But nothing’s falling for the preseason All-SEC selection right now. (February 17, 2015, Page 6)

Watkins’ late basket lifts Arkansas past Ole Miss

Saturday’s game between a pair of NCAA Tournament hopefuls at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum went back and forth from the start. But the visitors got to set up their offense one last time and sent Ole Miss to another home loss. Manuale Watkins hit a baseline floater with 8 seconds left to allow No. 24 Arkansas to get out of the Tad Pad with a 71-70 victory, snapping a six-game winning streak for the Rebels. (February 15, 2015, Page 1B)

Moody’s late 3 lifts Ole Miss to road win over Florida

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — After calling a timeout trailing 61-59 with the ball and just 17 seconds left to play, Ole Miss had one chance to win the game. And with 2.7 seconds remaining Stefan Moody launched a game-winning three-point shot from the nose of the alligator masthead at half court to give Ole Miss a stunning 62-61 win over Florida on Thursday. (February 13, 2015, Page 6A)

Ole Miss preparing to see Gators’ Frazier in rematch tonight

Florida coach Billy Donovan has said his top scorer won’t suit up tonight against Ole Miss. Andy Kennedy isn’t convinced. Michael Frazier II left the Gators’ game against Kentucky on Saturday midway through the second half after suffering a high ankle sprain. Frazier, who’s averaging 13.2 points per game, had 10 points before going down with the injury. Donovan said Frazier has been in a walking boot this week as Florida prepared for the rematch against the Rebels in Gainesville, Florida (6 p.m., ESPN), according to The Associated Press. (February 12, 2015, Page 5A, 6A)
