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)

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)

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)

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)

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)

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)
