Dwight Coleby

Ole Miss center Coleby set to transfer after two seasons

Two days after a big man joined Ole Miss’ men’s basketball team, another one is on the way out. Center Dwight Coleby will transfer after two years in the program. Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy confirmed Wednesday that Coleby has asked for his release. (May 21, 2015, Page 6)

Careers come to ‘emotional’ end for Rebel seniors

Stainbrook too much for Ole Miss bigs to handle inside

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy saw Matt Stainbrook from afar. His players got an up-close look. But they all came away with the same overriding thought: Xavier’s center isn’t your typical big man. (March 20, 2015, Page 1B)

OM tightens up, gets physical to extend season

DAYTON, Ohio — One part of the equation was obvious. The other part? Not so much for anybody that’s followed Ole Miss basketball this season. The Rebels had to get some stops if they wanted any chance of pulling off one of their biggest comebacks of the season against BYU on Tuesday and prevent themselves from going one and out in the NCAA Tournament. They also had to start making some shots on the other end to cut into a 17-point halftime hole. Once Ole Miss figured out it could increase the odds of putting the ball in the basket by imposing its will inside, the Rebels went to work. (March 18, 2015, Page 6)

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)

Rivalry’s impact differs between OM, MSU

Fresh off a victory over Florida on Saturday, which kept its NCAA Tournament hopes alive for now, the Ole Miss men’s basketball team must find a way to avoid having a letdown against a floundering Mississippi State team tonight inside C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum (8 p.m., SEC Network). (January 28, 2015, Page 1B)

Ole Miss makes FTs, hold on to beat Florida

Ole Miss needed every bit of its accuracy from the free throw line Saturday. Jarvis Summers scored a team-high 16 points, including a pair of free throws in the final seconds to put Ole Miss up for good, and the Rebels hung on for a 72-71 win over Florida at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. (January 25, 2015, Page 1B, 4B)

Rebels look to reverse home trend against Gators

Ole Miss will return home this weekend after spending more than a week on the road. That hasn’t always been a good thing. The Rebels have more losses at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum (4) than they do outside of their own building and are just one game above .500 there. Ole Miss can improve on that against Florida on Saturday (5 p.m., SEC Network) in a game the Rebels almost have to have for any NCAA Tournament aspirations. (January 23, 2015, Page 7)
