It’s been three seasons since Ole Miss’ volleyball program last graced an NCAA Tournament bracket.
Following Sunday’s hard-fought 3-1 (25-13, 25-20, 22-25, 25-22) victory over Arkansas at the Gillom Sports Complex, the Lady Rebels appear to have positioned themselves for a return trip to the tournament.
The win capped a successful weekend that began with a 3-0 (25-21, 25-18, 25-18) victory against No. 12 LSU on national television and extended Ole Miss’ winning streak to five matches.
