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

Even in the aftermath of a season-ending loss, LaDarius White couldn’t help but be satisfied. (March 23, 2015, Page 7)

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)

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)

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)

Defense failing Ole Miss down the stretch

Fresh off his team giving up the most it has all season to someone not named Kentucky, it didn’t take M.J. Rhett long to offer an answer as to what’s ailed Ole Miss down the stretch. It was painfully obvious to anyone who watched the Rebels over the weekend, too. (March 10, 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)
