Ole Miss men's basketball

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)

              Vanderbilt muddles NCAA picture for Rebels

              Vanderbilt won’t be a part of the NCAA Tournament unless it wins this week’s Southeastern Conference Tournament. The Commodores now have Ole Miss questioning its standing. M.J. Rhett scored 18 points and Jarvis Summers added 16, but Ole Miss couldn’t keep up with an onslaught of long-distance shooting from the Commodores in an 86-77 loss in both teams’ regular-season finale Saturday night at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. (March 8, 2015, Page 1B)

                    Ole Miss aims to stay on track in finale

                    Ole Miss already has one win this week. Another would all but sew up the Rebels’ spot in the NCAA Tournament. The Rebels (20-10, 11-6 Southeastern Conference) recovered from a rare winless week with a win at Alabama on Tuesday that has them positioned for a double bye in next week’s SEC Tournament. That win coupled with losses by Georgia, LSU and Texas A&M have the Rebels slotted for the No. 3 seed should they beat Vanderbilt on Saturday at home (8 p.m., SEC Network) to close the regular season. (March 6, 2015, Page 6, 7)
