Xavier bounces Rebels from NCAA Tournament

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — There wasn’t any comeback this time. Ole Miss’ NCAA Tournament game against Xavier on Thursday at Veterans Memorial Arena followed a similar early script that its game against BYU did two days earlier in the First Four. The Rebels shot the same 30 percent in the first half against the Musketeers that they did Tuesday. But Ole Miss scored 62 points in the final 20 minutes against the Cougars to wipe away a 17-point halftime deficit and advance. But the 11th-seeded Rebels never came close to recapturing that collective touch in north Florida, and Xavier’s 12-point halftime lead turned into a 76-57 victory that ended the Rebels’ season. (March 20, 2015, Page 1B)

Rebels look to set the tempo against Xavier

JACKSONVILLE Fla. — Not many teams were able to keep up with BYU’s up-tempo pace and shooting ability this season, but Ole Miss was one of them. Led by the perimeter trio of Stefan Moody, Jarvis Summers and LaDarius White, the Rebels are scoring 73.3 points per game and nearly reached that total alone (62) in the second half Tuesday against the Cougars with a formula that’s worked all season in their wins — hit shots, penetrate when defenses have to extend and speed the opponent up with their patented 1-3-1 half-court trap. (March 19, 2015, Page 6)

Rebels rally past BYU, advance in NCAAs

DAYTON, Ohio — Ole Miss’ loudest offensive explosion of the season came at the right time. The Rebels poured in 62 points in the final 20 minutes to erase a 17-point halftime deficit and advance in the NCAA Tournament with a 94-90 victory over BYU in the First Four at the University of Dayton Arena on Tuesday. (March 18, 2015, Page 6)

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)

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)
