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.

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)

NEW ORLEANS — Hitting the road for the first time can always be an experience to say the least, and the Ole Miss baseball team’s first road trip is no exception.

St. Stanislaus standout wide receiver Krisjon Wilkerson is still looking for a school to play college football at. Ole Miss is one of the schools where the 6-foot-2, 205-pounder may end up as a walk-on. While Wilkerson doesn’t have blazing speed – he runs the 40-yard dash in 4.7 seconds – he led the state with 103 catches for 2,0102 yards and 25 TDs last year. (March 5, 2010, Page 6A)
The No. 21 Ole Miss baseball team travels to New Orleans this weekend to play Tulane in a three-game series. The series begins tonight at 6:30 and concludes Sunday at 1 p.m. It’s the first set of games away from Oxford for the 7-1 Rebels and coach Mike Bianco said the experience should only help his team going forward into SEC play.

Chris Warren led four Ole Miss players in double figures with 22 points, while Zach Graham came off the bench to score 16 points. The Rebels earned their first sweep of LSU since 1999 and also secured another 20 win season for coach Andy Kennedy, who now has been a part of three of the eight seasons where the Rebels have won 20 or more games. (March 4, 2010, Page 6A)
OLE MISS MEN’S HOOPS — Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy is a college basketball junkie. He’s admitted that fact several times over his four-year tenure. When he’s not crunching numbers and evaluating tape of the Rebels’ next opponent, he’s usually watching games from across the nation. (March 4, 2010, Page 7)
