Rebels overcome plenty of pitfalls to make The Dance

Henderson’s shot keys OT victory

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — It wasn’t a “desperation heave,” if you believe the man who shot it. It was all part of the plan.

Rebels turnover big road opportunity

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Middle Tennessee State taught Ole Miss a valuable lesson Saturday night: It’s all about your appetite.

The Rebels lost 65-62 at MTSU, their first of the season, in an effort characterized by coach Andy Kennedy as — at times — a case of the Blue Raiders’ senior-laden roster simply being hungrier than Ole Miss. (December 10, 2012, Page 1B)
