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.

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)

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)

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)

COLUMN: Rebels’ road success will only help in chase for NCAA Tournament berth

If you’re to believe the folks that cover college basketball for a living, Ole Miss would be a part of the NCAA Tournament if it started today. ESPN bracketologist Joe Lundari last updated his field of 68 this morning and has Ole Miss as a 10 seed facing seventh-seeded Indiana in Omaha, Nebraska. Same for CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm, who revised his tournament projections Sunday night and had the Rebels on the 10 line, though against a different opponent (SMU).

Ole Miss downs A&M for fourth straight win

Ole Miss is playing like it wants to be a part of the NCAA Tournament. The Rebels got enough offense outside of their regular options and coupled it with some stout defense to strengthen their postseason resume with a 69-59 victory over Texas A&M on Wednesday at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. Stefan Moody scored a game-high 19 points for the Rebels (15-7, 6-3 Southeastern Conference), who won their fourth straight game and picked up their third top-50 RPI win in the process. Forward M.J. Rhett added 11 points. (February 5, 2015, Page 2B)

Moody’s 23 points power Ole Miss in rout of Missouri

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Leading by two points with 9:37 remaining the first half at Missouri on Saturday, Ole Miss’ Anthony Perez launched a 3-point attempt that bounced high off the back rim only to be palmed by teammate Stefan Moody in midair. The 5-foot-10-inch junior dunked it with his right hand before landing on his feet and flexing his arms in front of the Tigers’ student section. (February 1, 2015, Page 1B)

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 ‘lethargic’ in 75-71 loss to LSU

LSU simply had too much firepower for Ole Miss. But a lack of energy and untimely mistakes didn’t do anything to help the Rebels’ cause. Keith Hornsby had a game-high 23 points, LSU’s talented frontcourt duo of Jarell Martin and Jordan Mickey each recorded double-doubles, and the Tigers sent Ole Miss to a 75-71 loss Wednesday night at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. (January 15, 2015, Page 6A)
