As we mentioned last week, Mahesh Bhupathi rose onto the tennis scene during his freshman year (1994) with the Rebels.  The following year in 1995, Bhupathi did something that no other tennis player had ever done in Ole Miss tennis history.  Following a combined 15-3 record in league play in singles and doubles, Bhupathi was recognized as the Southeastern Conference Player of the Year.

That year, Bhupathi was the SEC Indoor Singles Champion and finished the season as the No. 3 ranked singles and No. 1 doubles player in the country.  

"Mahesh's record speaks for itself, but to me, what separates him from the rest is his match play combined with his outstanding sportsmanship," said Ole Miss head coach Billy Chadwick upon the recognition.

The 1995 season will go down as not only one of the best in tennis, but one of the best years in any single sport in Ole Miss history, which is why we decided to break down the year in several moments.  We have plenty more exciting, groundbreaking moments from this year on the way. Stay tuned.
