Kentrell Lockett is always an easy-going guy. He likes to joke, keep things loose and most of all smile.
On Monday when he met with members of the media at the Indoor Practice Facility to discuss what the previous week had been like, it was obvious he had been through a lot.

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)

On Friday, the Rebels were able to hold on after surrendering a three-run eighth inning to defeat the Tulane Green Wave 6-4.
