    Bubble losses help Ole Miss cling to NCAA life

    As ugly as the first 39 minutes and 57 seconds were for the Ole Miss men’s basketball team in its Southeastern Conference Tournament game against South Carolina on Thursday, it looked as if Jarvis Summers’ improbable four-point play was going to save the Rebels and possibly lock them into the NCAA Tournament in the process. (March 15, 2015, Page 1B)

      Late foul dooms Rebels in SEC tourney loss to South Carolina

      NASHVILLE, Tenn. — LaDarius White didn’t think it was a foul. Tyrone Johnson disagreed. But this much is certain: Ole Miss’ time at the Southeastern Conference Tournament is over — and its hopes of getting an invite to the NCAA Tournament may be, too. The Rebels were bounced from the conference tournament with a 60-58 loss to No. 11 seed South Carolina late Thursday night at Bridgestone Arena, but that doesn’t begin to tell the story. (March 13, 2015, Page 6)

        Ole Miss’ NCAA fate up in the air

        NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Leading up this week’s Southeastern Conference Tournament, Ole Miss’ players didn’t want to think about what a win or loss in its tournament opener would mean for their NCAA Tournament chances. Minutes after the Rebels suffered the latter Thursday night against one of the league’s bottom feeders, that’s all that was left for them to do. (March 13, 2015, Page 6)

            BLOG: Games nationwide could affect Ole Miss’ NCAA chances

            NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Ole Miss men’s basketball team ultimately just needs to win its Southeastern Conference Tournament opener tonight (8:30 p.m., SEC Network) against South Carolina to feel good — at least for now — about its NCAA Tournament hopes, but there are games to be played in Nashville, Tennessee, and in other conference tournaments involving other bubble teams that Rebel fans may want to keep an eye on as the day unfolds.

              Rebels out to help their NCAA case at SEC tourney

              NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A common phrase was repeated by players on Ole Miss’ men’s basketball team shortly after the final tuneup for its Southeastern Conference Tournament opener. The Rebels limped to the finish line of the regular season to put themselves back on the NCAA Tournament bubble. Ole Miss’ third loss in its last four games was an ugly one to a .500 Vanderbilt team that had 80 points before the final media timeout to close a forgettable home slate. (March 12, 2015, Page 7)

                  Defense failing Ole Miss down the stretch

                  Fresh off his team giving up the most it has all season to someone not named Kentucky, it didn’t take M.J. Rhett long to offer an answer as to what’s ailed Ole Miss down the stretch. It was painfully obvious to anyone who watched the Rebels over the weekend, too. (March 10, 2015, Page 7)

                    Projections put Rebels squarely on bubble

                    Ole Miss’ men’s basketball team has played its way back on the bubble, according to those that follow the sport religiously. The Rebels continued their late-season swoon with Saturday’s 86-77 loss to Vanderbilt at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum that really wasn’t that close. Vanderbilt torched Ole Miss from deep (13 of 23 from 3-point range), led by 13 at the half and ran away with it in the second half to hand the Rebels their third loss in four games and their seventh in their own building. (March 9, 2015, Page 6)
