BLOG: Rebels top No. 1 Florida, 4-1

After dropping their opening Southeastern Conference series to LSU last weekend, Ole Miss needed to start their weekend series with No. 1 Florida off on the right foot. They did just that as the Rebels beat the Gators 4-1 in their SEC home opener at Oxford-University Stadium Friday night. (more…) (March 20, 2015)

    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)

        Diamond Rebels host No. 1 Florida for SEC home opener

        For the second weekend in a row, the Ole Miss baseball team will face a top-5 opponent. Depending on which of the five polls people acknowledge, they are also facing the No. 1 team in the country for the second time in as many weekends as the Rebels (11-9, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) host Florida (19-3, 2-1) for their SEC opening home series. (March 20, 2015, Page 1B)

          For the first time in five seasons, the Ole Miss women’s basketball team is in the postseason, and the Rebels do not plan on exiting early.  In what could potentially be the final March game played inside C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum, the Rebels defeated the UT-Martin Skyhawks, 80-70, on Wednesday night to advance to the second round of the WNIT. (March 19, 2015, Page 6)

            Rebels look to set the tempo against Xavier

            JACKSONVILLE Fla. — Not many teams were able to keep up with BYU’s up-tempo pace and shooting ability this season, but Ole Miss was one of them. Led by the perimeter trio of Stefan Moody, Jarvis Summers and LaDarius White, the Rebels are scoring 73.3 points per game and nearly reached that total alone (62) in the second half Tuesday against the Cougars with a formula that’s worked all season in their wins — hit shots, penetrate when defenses have to extend and speed the opponent up with their patented 1-3-1 half-court trap. (March 19, 2015, Page 6)

                  Rebels rally past BYU, advance in NCAAs

                  DAYTON, Ohio — Ole Miss’ loudest offensive explosion of the season came at the right time.

                    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)
