Ole Miss junior forward/guard Eniel Polynice, who was suspended for an undisclosed time period over the weekend, returned to practice today and will make the trip with the team to the SEC Tournament in Nashville. Polynice missed the Rebels’ 68-66 win over Arkansas on Saturday due to conduct detrimental to the team. (more…) (March 10, 2010, Page 9)
With Spring Training well underway and several Rebels trying out (or firmly cemented) with big league teams, I figured it’d be good to update how they’re doing. (more…) (March 10, 2010)
A day after being named the Southeastern Conference’s Player of the Week, Ole Miss junior guard Chris Warren was named Second Team All-SEC Tuesday by the league coaches. In addition, despite missing three weeks to injury, forward Reginald Buckner was named to the All-SEC Freshman Team. (March 10, 2010, Page 9)
Through the first 11 games of the season, the Ole Miss baseball team had committed only six errors and boasted a Southeastern Conference-best .985 fielding percentage.
On Tuesday, it didn’t really matter that the No. 18 Rebels committed a season-high four errors, as they were able to compile 14 runs on 16 hits to cruise past the Austin Peay Governors 14-4. (March 10, 2010, Page 8)
SEC MEN’S HOOPS NOTEBOOK — Ole Miss junior guard Chris Warren won the final regular season Player of the Week award from the Southeastern Conference Monday. Warren scored 31 points in the Rebels’ 68-66 win over Arkansas on Saturday, while he averaged 26.5 points and 3.0 assists in two much needed wins last week. (March 9, 2010, Page 8)
NEW ORLEANS — Heading into this season, it looked like Ole Miss freshman infielder Alex Yarbrough was going to be a key reserve that got chances to start when injuries or slumps would befall starters. After the Tulane series, it’s going to be hard to take the Allen, Texas, native out of the lineup. (March 8, 2010, Page 6a)
NEW ORLEANS — The baseball gods were not kind to Ole Miss on Sunday. Or they were wearing green shirts and were sympathetic to Tulane’s previous two losses. Either way, they made sure there was no doubt which team would win the series finale at Turchin Stadium.
In Sunday’s 12-4 win over No. 21 Ole Miss, Tulane was able to get hits by the bushel, tallying 20 total hits — 18 of which were singles — and chased Rebels starter Trent Rothlin after 3.2 innings of work. (March 8, 2010, Page 6a)
Ole Miss starting pitcher Trent Rothlin was tagged with the loss, surrendering six runs runs in 3.2 innings.
Ole Miss (9-2 overall) will return to the diamond to face Austin Peay in a two-game midweek series beginning Tuesday at Oxford-University Stadium. Rory McKean is scheduled to start for the Rebels. (March 7, 2010)
