    Rebels look to rebound from setbacks at Alabama

    Ole Miss came crashing back to earth last week. Now with their NCAA Tournament hopes possibly depending on it, the Rebels will try to make up for it down the stretch. The Rebels lost back-to-back games for the first time all season with setbacks at home to Georgia on Wednesday and on the road to LSU on Saturday. Before that, Ole Miss had won eight of nine and was a team trending for the Big Dance. According on the latest bracket projections from national pundits, Ole Miss would still be in the field if the tournament started today, but with less than two weeks until Selection Sunday, the margin for error has evaporated. (March 3, 2015, Page 7)

      TOURNEY WATCH: Ole Miss sliding after winless week

      Ole Miss would still be a part of of the NCAA Tournament if it started today, but a rough week hasn’t left much — if any — room for error down the stretch. (more…) (March 2, 2015)

        Ole Miss drops second straight in loss at LSU

        BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU guard Tim Quarterman only hoped his sore left ankle wouldn’t render him a defensive liability against Mississippi’s leading scorer, Stefan Moody. Quarterman did more than just hold up against Moody on Saturday. One day after twisting his ankle in practice, he turned in the first triple-double by an LSU player since Shaquille O’Neal in 1992. Quarterman had 18 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, and LSU pulled into a fourth-place tie in the Southeastern Conference with a 73-63 victory over Ole Miss. (March 1, 2015, Page 1B)

          Kennedy wants more energy from Rebs down the stretch

          It’s hard for Andy Kennedy to fathom, even if he knows the effort is there. Whether he’s looking down the bench, gathering his team in a huddle or working to get what he thinks are advantageous matchups for his players on the court, Ole Miss’ men’s basketball coach isn’t seeing enough want-to from a team that should be showing plenty being that it’s heavily in the mix for a berth in the NCAA Tournament. (February 27, 2015, Page 6)

            Do the little things, and the big will follow

            You’ve heard the advice before: take care of the little things and the big things usually take care of themselves. Editor Don Whitten looks at how the Ole Miss men’s basketball team has turned that philosophy into winning ways this season, and then gives examples of how we all can do that for ourselves. (February 27, 2015, Page 4)

              Bulldogs’ inside, outside combo cools off Ole Miss

              Ole Miss didn’t stop much of anything Georgia did on offense and once again couldn’t make enough shots to overcome it on its home floor. As a result, Ole Miss suffered a rare fate Wednesday night. Georgia knocked down 11 3-pointers, Marcus Thornton was a force down the stretch, and the Bulldogs cooled off Ole Miss with a 76-72 victory at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. It was just the Rebels’ second loss in their last 10 games and just their fifth loss in league play, two of which have come to the Bulldogs. (February 26, 2015, Page 5A)

                    Rebels brush off tourney talk with UGA up next

                    Ole Miss is one of the hotter teams around. All the winning has the Rebels trending for the postseason.

                    The Rebels have won eight of their last nine games and are coming off a 2-0 week against Mississippi State and Tennessee. The win over the Vols on Saturday kept Ole Miss (19-8, 10-4 Southeastern Conference) in a tie for third place with Texas A&M in the SEC standings and in line for a double bye in next month’s SEC Tournament with four games to go, though the Rebels would technically be the tournament’s third seed if it started today with their head-to-head win over A&M on Feb. 4.
