REBELS SWEEP BACK-TO-BACK-TO-BACK TO OPEN SEASON
When the Rebels picked up a series sweep over Rhode Island on Sunday, February 24, it gave the Rebels series sweeps in back-to-back weekends to open the season. It’s the first time the Rebels have opened the year with back-to-back series sweeps since the 2008 season when the Rebels swept Minnesota and Indiana State to open the season.

Ole Miss continued the sweeps in the third weekend of play at Florida International, sweeping the Panthers in a three-game set. It marked the first time Ole Miss had posted three consecutive weekend sweeps to open the season since the 2004 campaign when the Rebels swept Birmingham Southern, South Alabama and Eastern Illinois.

ANDERSON, TURNER CATCH FIRE AT FIU
A pair of juniors caught fire at the plate against the Panthers of Florida International in the third weekend of play. Austin Anderson and Stuart Turner both performed well and were part of a trio of Rebels who hit above .400 for the weekend series. Turner led the way with a .667 average, while Anderson hit .583 for the series. Will Jamison rounded out the hot-hitting Rebels with a .429 average at FIU. As a result, both Anderson and Turner raised their season averages almost 100 points in a weekend. Turner now leads the team with a .450 average (up from .357), while Anderson is now hitting .372 (up from .290) entering the weekend.

MULTIPLE-HIT AND MULTIPLE-RBI GAMES
Stuart Turner does a little bit of everything for the Rebels and currently leads the team in multiple-hit games and multiple-RBI games. To date, Turner has posted seven multiple-hit games and five multiple-RBI games. Ten Rebels have posted multiple-hit games in 2012, while eight different Rebels have posted multiple-RBI games this season.

STREAKING REBELS TO WATCH
Eight Rebels hold active hit streaks heading into the midweek series with Southeastern Louisiana, led by Stuart Turner’s seven game hit streak. Austin Anderson and Preston Overbey are right behind him with six-game hit streaks. Tanner Mathis saw the season-long hit streak of 10 games (11 dating back to the final game of 2012) snapped on Sunday, but Mathis has still reached base safely in 11 straight games this season.

THROUGH 12 GAMES IN 2012
Through 12 games in the 2012 season, the Rebels were a game behind the current pace in 2013 with a 10-2 record on the season. Ole Miss was hitting at a .317 clip with 10 home runs and 88 RBI and were 14-of-18 on steal attempts. As a pitching staff, the Rebels held to a 2.61 ERA with 101 strikeouts and 25 walks while allowing 31 earned runs. The Rebels were fielding at a .967 clip with 15 errors.

TOP OF THE REBEL COACHING RANKS
While he is closing in on the 500 win mark at Ole Miss, Bianco will hit another milestone on his way to the 500-win mark. With his 482 wins, Bianco is four wins away from taking over the top spot as winningest coach in Ole Miss baseball history. Jake Gibbs (1972-1990) is the current leader with 485 career victories.
