Tuesday’s game against Arkansas-Pine Bluff did not. (more…) (November 30, 2011, Page 9)

Byrd off to a fast start for Lady Rebs

There’s never been any denying Nikki Byrd’s talent. The 6-foot-4 senior forward has consistently shown glimpses of her promise over the previous three seasons.
What hasn’t been consistent from the Brookhaven native, however, is her effort and production from game to game and even quarter to quarter. (more…) (November 29, 2011, Page 7)

Lady Rebs hoping to bounce back

Coming off of a 67-58 loss at Lamar on Tuesday, the Ole Miss women’s basketball team will look to rebound on Friday when it hosts South Alabama at 4:30 p.m.

Looking back at the setback, head coach Renee Ladner felt her team didn’t capitalize on its opportunities, specifically free throws where the Lady Rebels only made 4 of 14.

Ladner also said her team didn’t convert its offensive rebounds. (November 17, 2011, Page 7)

Lady Rebs overcome slow start in opener

The Ole Miss Lady Rebels showed their youth at times on Friday.

Opening their season with a bout against North Florida at the C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum, the Ole Miss women’s basketball team had to dig out of an early 12-point deficit to defeat the Ospreys 68-59. (November 14, 2011, Page 4B)

A lot of new faces for Lady Rebels

The Ole Miss women’s basketball team will officially get its season started on Friday with an 11 a.m. tip against North Florida.

Even after an exhibition swing in Canada, weeks of practice and two closed scrimmages, Lady Rebel head coach Renee Ladner is being cautious about the her team’s readiness for the opener. (November 10, 2011, Page 7)

Lady Rebels fall at Alabama

Trailing by as many as 23 late in the first half at Alabama, Ole Miss women’s basketball team battled back to pull to within one with 8:02 left in the second half, but the Crimson Tide hung on for the 61-52 win. (more…) (February 21, 2011, Page 8)

Jenkins, Byrd unable to lift OM past Hogs

The last three games without senior Kayla Melson have been a struggle for the Ole Miss women’s basketball team.
Mark Thursday’s 56-53 loss to Arkansas at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum as No. 4.

The Lady Rebs shot just 24.1 percent in the first half and were never able to fully recover from the 12-point deficit at halftime. (February 18, 2011, Page 7A)

Lady Rebs can’t fend off UGA rally

Led by 19 points from Memphis native Jasmine James and 17 points from Jasmine Hassell, the No. 24 Georgia Lady Bulldogs rallied from a six-point halftime deficit to defeat Ole Miss 61-56 on Sunday afternoon at the C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum.

Porsha Phillips had just two points for Georgia in the first half, but she came up big in the second frame by scoring nine to help the Lady Bulldogs rebound. (February 14, 2011, Page 8A)

Lady Rebels need someone to step up

COLUMN: It has sort of been the Ole Miss women’s basketball team’s “thing” this season to get behind early, then make a late run to make games interesting. (more…) (February 11, 2011, Page 6A)

McFarland’s late free throws help lift OM to win

Valencia McFarland scored 21 points and hit two late free throws to seal the victory, and Ole Miss upset No. 23 Arkansas 69-65 on Sunday.

Ole Miss (9-9 overall, 2-4 in the Southestern Conference) rallied from an early 14-2 deficit to snap a four-game losing streak. (January 24, 2011, Page 6)
