HOOVER, Ala. — The Ole Miss Rebels can take a deep breath and exhale a sigh of relief. Well, sort of.

HOOVER, Ala. — A.J. Reed didn’t just do a little of everything for Kentucky on Tuesday.
The southpaw shut out Ole Miss for 5.1 innings in the opening game of the Southeastern Conference Tournament at Regions Park.
And then, as if that wasn’t enough, the freshman also went 4-for-4 at the plate with three singles and a solo home run in the fourth inning that proved to be the difference in the 2-0 Kentucky victory. (May 23, 2012, Page 5A)
HOOVER, Ala. — The Rebels are hurting, and in a big way.
A week ago Ole Miss was coming off of a three-game sweep of Tennessee and even felt like there was an outside shot of a host spot in the upcoming NCAA Tournament if they didn’t sputter down the stretch. (May 23, 2012, Page 6A)
JONESBORO, Ark. — Zach Kirksey hit his 13th home run of the season, a two-run shot to give the No. 25 Ole Miss Rebels the early lead, but a big fifth inning from the Red Wolves proved to be too much to overcome as the Rebels lost 10-5 to Arkansas State. Ole Miss fell to 34-19 with the loss, while ASU improved to 29-21. (May 16, 2012, Page 6)
PEARL — Josh Laxer looked like a completely different pitcher Tuesday.
Prior to Tuesday’s game, Ole Miss pitching coach Carl Lafferty sat the former Madison Central product down to have a talk.
The freshman had not had the ideal start to his collegiate career, allowing 10 earned runs and five walks in 16.1 innings.
Lafferty told Laxer to let loose. Remember how you pitched for the Jaguars, Lafferty asked. Pitch like that. (May 2, 2012, Page 6)
Technical difficulties due to weather related issues in Indianapolis caused Tuesday’s NCAA tennis selection show to be delayed by an hour. The extra wait wasn’t the best thing for Ole Miss men’s tennis coach Billy Chadwick, who could only remember not hosting the first two rounds of the tournament in 2009 even when it appeared like the No. 2 Rebels would be a lock. Fortunately for Chadwick and his team, the delay didn’t lead to more bad news. (May 2, 2012, Page 6)
It never seems to get any easier in the Southeastern Conference.
After taking two of three from Arkansas last weekend, the No. 18 Rebels must now turn back around and hit the road to play in-state rival Mississippi State this weekend before hosting red-hot No. 1 LSU May 4-6.

A final chance to watch the No. 14 Ole Miss men’s tennis team compete against the squad’s biggest rival comes Saturday afternoon at the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center.
