BARNES IN THIRD SEASON AS REBEL MENTOR
Rod Barnes is in his third season at the helm of the Ole Miss Rebel
basketball program. He has an overall record of 51-28 (.646 winning
percentage). In his first two seasons, Barnes compiled a 39-27 record, and
the 39 victories are the most by a Rebel coach in his first two years in
Ole Miss history. Last year, Barnes guided Ole Miss to a 19-14 overall
record and a berth in the National Invitation Tournament (NIT). The Rebels
advanced to the NIT quarterfinals for the second time in school history.
The winning season and postseason tournament both were the fourth straight
for the Ole Miss program.
In 1998-99, Barnes led Ole Miss to a 20-13 overall record and a
third-straight NCAA Tournament appearance. The Satartia, Miss., native was
the first head coach in the history of Rebel basketball to win 20 games in
his first season. Barnes also guided the Rebels to a 72-70 win over
Villanova in the NCAA Tournament first round, marking the program's
first-ever victory in NCAA play.
Barnes was hired as the Rebel head coach on April 9, 1998. A 1988
graduate of Ole Miss, Barnes served as an assistant under Evans from
1993-98. During his time as an assistant coach, the Rebels compiled a
record of 76-63 and won back-to-back Southeastern Conference Western
Division titles and received consecutive NCAA Tournament berths in 1997 and
1998. Barnes played at Ole Miss from 1984-88 and was named All-SEC his
senior season. He still ranks on the Ole Miss career charts in scoring
(17th, 1,201 points), assists (2nd, 456) and steals (6th, 154).
OLE MISS-VANDERBILT SERIES
The Jan. 6 game will be the 100th meeting between Ole Miss and Vanderbilt
on the hardwood. The Commodores lead the all-time series, 63-36, and also
hold a commanding 43-6 series advantage in games played in Nashville.
Vanderbilt has defeated Ole Miss the last 10 times in Nashville, with the
Rebels' last victory in Memorial Gym being a 60-55 win on Feb. 2, 1985
(1984-85 season). Last year, Ole Miss defeated Vanderbilt, 75-67 in Oxford.
The Commodores enter the Jan. 6 game with a 10-2 overall record.
Vanderbilt has won four of its last five games, but dropped a 97-74
decision at Boston College in its last outing Dec. 30. Senior center Greg
LaPointe leads three Vanderbilt players in double figures with a 12.3
scoring average. Freshman Matt Freije (11.1 ppg) and junior Chuck Moore
(10.0 ppg) -- both of whom missed the Commodores' last game at Boston
College -- are also averaging double figures. Senior Anthony Williams is
nearly averaging a double-double at 9.2 ppg and 9.0 rpg. LaPointe is the
team's top shooter from the field at 56.9 percent, while freshman Brendan
Plavich leads the squad from the three-point line at 40.8 percent. The
Commodores are shooting 43.3 percent from the field, 31 percent from the
arc and 70 percent from the charity stripe. Vanderbilt is out-rebounding
its opponents, 39.7-31.8 (+7.9).
OLE MISS IN SEC OPENERS
The Rebels have an overall record of 24-43 in Southeastern Conference
openers in their previous 67 years of play in the league. In the last
eight years, Ole Miss has a 3-5 record in SEC openers, and has won two of
its last four season openers. Last year, the Rebels dropped their league
season opener at Arkansas, 71-64, and in 1999-2000, Ole Miss lost its SEC
opener at Vanderbilt, 79-64. Prior to the last two losses, Ole Miss had
won consecutive SEC season openers over Arkansas (91-74) in 1996-97 and
South Carolina (73-54) in 1997-98. The other SEC-opening victory in the
last eight years came against Arkansas (76-71) in Oxford in 1994-95. Head
coach Rod Barnes is 0-2 in SEC openers.
REBELS IN CONFERENCE ROAD OPENERS
Ole Miss has an all-time record of 7-60 in Southeastern Conference road
openers. In the past eight seasons, the Rebels are 2-8 in SEC road
openers. Ole Miss, however, has posted victories in two of its last four
SEC road openers. In 1997-98, the Rebels defeated Alabama, 74-63 in
Tuscaloosa in their first conference road game, and in 1996-97, Ole Miss
won its conference road opener with a 91-74 victory over Arkansas in
Fayetteville. Last year, Ole Miss lost at Arkansas, 71-64.
ON THE ROAD AGAIN...PART I
For the third consecutive year, the Ole Miss Rebel basketball begins its
Southeastern Confer-ence schedule on the road. The Rebels are one of four
league teams to play its SEC opener on the road the last three years
(including 2000-01). The other three SEC teams to do so are Florida,
Georgia and Tennessee.
ON THE ROAD AGAIN...PART II
Since the 1990-91 season (and including the 2000-01 campaign), the Rebels
have opened the Southeastern Conference portion of their schedule on the
road eight times compared to only three league openers in Oxford.
ON THE ROAD AGAIN...PART III
Ole Miss is one of three Southeastern Conference teams to play its first
two games in the league on the road. The Rebels play at Vanderbilt Jan. 6
and at Arkansas Jan. 10. Alabama (at LSU, at Tennessee) and Florida (at
South Carolina, at Mississippi State) are the other two SEC teams to play
their first two league games on the road.
A HAPPY 50 FOR COACH BARNES
No, Ole Miss head coach Rod Barnes is not celebrating his 50th birthday
(not even close for the 34-year-old, by the way). With the Rebels'
overtime victory over No. 13-ranked Southern Cal Dec. 22, Barnes won his
50th game as the Ole Miss head coach. He has a current record of 51-28.
Barnes reached the 50-win plateau the third fastest of any coach in Rebel
history. George Bohler and Homer Hazel are the only two coaches in Ole
Miss history to reach the milestone faster.
HAPPY (EARLY) BIRTHDAY WISHES FOR COACH
Speaking of birthdays, Ole Miss head coach Rod Barnes will be celebrating
his 35th Jan. 8. Here's wishing Coach Barnes a happy birthday a little early.
TAYLOR TO FOCUS ON FOOTBALL
Rebel sophomore guard Syniker Taylor (Gulfport, Miss.), who also played
basketball at Ole Miss last year, has decided to pass on joining the
basketball team for the 2000-01 season and concentrate on football. This
fall, Taylor started all 11 games at free safety for the Ole Miss football
squad and recorded 67 tackles (43 solo), three interceptions, 19 passes
defensed and two fumble recoveries. He was second on the squad in tackles
and interceptions. Taylor also returned one interception 65 yards for a
touchdown versus Georgia (Nov. 18, 2000).
Last year, Taylor played in 18 games for the Ole Miss basketball team. He
averaged 2.2 points and 2.3 rebounds, while posting 10 assists and 18 steals.
REBELS WERE IN THE FINAL TWO
Forget the Final Four for now. Ole Miss was among the 'Final Two' prior
to the Rebels' loss to Iowa State Dec. 23. Before the setback to Iowa
State, Ole Miss was one of the last two NCAA Division I schools to have
both its men's and women's basketball teams undefeated. The Lady Rebels
have an 11-1 record. Baylor is now the lone school to have both its men's
and women's team undefeated.
REBELS START WITH 12-1 RECORD FOR THIRD TIME IN FOUR SEASONS
Ole Miss has started a campaign with a 12-1 record for the third time in
four years in 2000-01. The 1997-98 and 1999-2000 Rebel squads also began
their seasons with 12-1 records. The last time an Ole Miss team started a
campaign with a better record was 1925-26 when that squad had a 15-1 record
to begin the year. That team finished the season with a 16-2 mark.
FLANIGAN HOT FROM THE ARC
After tying his career high for three-pointers made (three) seven previous
imes, Jason Flanigan (Little Rock, Ark.) finally got 'over the hump,'
hitting a career-best five treys in the Rebels' victory over Morris Brown
Dec. 30. The 6-foot-1 senior guard hit 5-of-6 from the arc and was 7-of-8
from the field versus the Wolverines. Flanigan scored 19 points in the
victory, just one point shy of tying his career high.
REBELS TIE BEST START IN SCHOOL HISTORY
With their victory over No. 13-ranked Southern Cal on Dec. 22, the Rebels
tied the best start in school history with an 11-0 mark. The 1936-37 team
also had an 11-0 start. Last year (1999-2000), Ole Miss started the
campaign with a 6-0 record before losing its first game at Oklahoma, 81-73.
Before their loss to Iowa State Dec. 23, the Rebels had won 11 straight
games, tying the school record for consecutive victories. The 1936-37 and
1937-38 teams also posted 11-game win streaks.
REBELS FINISH SECOND IN HAWAII TOURNAMENT
Ole Miss placed second in the Yahoo! Sports Invitational played in Laie,
Hawaii, Dec. 21-23. The Rebels fell to Iowa State, 73-68 in the
invitational's championship game. Ole Miss advanced to the title game with
victories over Southern Illinois (70-66) and No. 13-ranked Southern Cal
(84-83) in overtime.
LOCKHART NAMED TO YAHOO! ALL-TOURNAMENT TEAM
Senior Rahim Lockhart (Mendenhall, Miss.) was selected to the Yahoo!
Sports Invitational All-Tournament Team the weekend of Dec. 21-23. The
6-foot-8 forward averaged 12.7 points and 9.0 rebounds in the tournament's
three games. He recorded his 19th career double-double (16 points, 13
rebounds) in the Rebels' victory over No. 13-ranked Southern Cal Dec. 22.
It was the second straight season that Lockhart received tournament honors.
Last year, he earned All-Tournament Team accolades at the SoCon Holiday
Hoops Tournament (Nov. 26-28, 1999).
HOLMES HAS SOLID TOURNAMENT SHOWING
Senior Jason Holmes (Tylertown, Miss.) played big for the Rebels in the
Yahoo! Sports Invitational Dec. 21-23. The 6-foot-5 guard averaged 8.3
points in the tournament, but scored in double figures versus No. 13-ranked
Southern Cal and Iowa State.
In the Rebels' win over the Trojans, Holmes netted 10 points, but none as
key as his four free throws in the contest. His first two free throws
pulled the Rebels to within two points at 78-76 with 31 seconds left in
regulation, setting up Aaron Harper's game-tying hoop. Then, Holmes' two
free throws in overtime gave Ole Miss the lead for good at 82-80 with 2:49
Holmes followed that performance with 12 points versus Iowa State in the
title game. He shot 3-of-4 from the three-point line and 3-of-3 from the
free throw line in the contest.
HEATING UP FROM LONG DISTANCE
After a slow start at dialing from long distance this year, the Rebels are
getting hot from the three-point line. Prior to the Dec. 18 game versus
Troy State, Ole Miss was ranked last in the SEC in three-point field goals
made per game at 4.63. However, that has changed in Ole Miss' last five
contests. The Rebels hit a school-record 14 treys versus Troy State, nine
versus Southern Illinois and Southern Cal, seven versus Iowa State and 10
versus Morris Brown. Over those five games, the Rebels have hit 9.8 treys
per contest. Ole Miss is also hitting 43.4 percent from the arc in those
MOVING ON UP THE CHARTS
With his 12-rebound performance versus Arkansas-Pine Bluff Nov. 18, senior
Rahim Lockhart became the 15th player in Rebel basketball history to grab
500 boards in a career. He now has 625 career rebounds, after grabbing 10
boards versus Morris Brown Dec. 30. Lockhart is in the No. 11 spot on the
Ole Miss career rebounding list, and needs 12 more rebounds to take over
the No. 10 spot currently held by Joe Harvell (1990-93, 636 career
rebounds). Lockhart entered the 1999-2000 season with 278 boards, and with
his 220 rebounds in 1999-2000, he had 498 rebounds coming into the 2000-01
'GET THAT SHOT OUTTA HERE!!!'
Senior Rahim Lockhart recorded a career-best five blocked shots versus
Memphis Dec. 9. After his two blocks versus Morris Brown Dec. 30, he now
has 109 for his career and is in third place on the Ole Miss career blocked
shots chart. Up next for Lockhart is Johnnie Rogers (1996-99), who is
second with 114 career blocked shots. The 6-foot-8 forward entered the
2000-01 season with 83 career blocks. Lockhart led the Rebels in blocked
shots the previous two seasons with 44 and 46 blocks, respectively.
LOCKHART DOUBLES HIS PLEASURE
Senior Rahim Lockhart is picking up where he left off last year -- doubling
his pleasure. Lockhart came into the 2000-01 season with 14 career
double-doubles, and he recorded his 20th double-double performance in Ole
Miss' win over Morris Brown (10 points-10 rebounds). He also had
double-doubles versus Arkansas-Pine Bluff (17-12) Nov. 18,
Louisiana-Monroe (16-10) Nov. 28, Memphis (15-14) Dec. 9, Southeastern
Louisiana (21-14) Dec. 13 and Southern Cal (16-13) Dec. 22. Last year,
Lockhart had 13 double-doubles, which ranked him in the top 10 in the
nation in that statistical category. His first career double-double came
versus Tennessee (16-12) as a sophomore in the 1998-99 season.
DARE WE SAY IT...
Yes, we must. The Rebels were en fuego -- on fire -- from the three-point arc
in their victory over Troy State Dec. 18. Ole Miss hit a school-record 14
treys, breaking the previous mark of 13 three-pointers versus Arkansas in
the 1991-92 season (Jan. 18, 1992, 114-93 Arkansas win). The Rebels shot
41.2 percent from the arc in the win over the Trojans, led by redshirt
freshman Josh Hayes' (Little Rock, Ark.) 6-of-7 shooting performance from
the arc. This season, Ole Miss is hitting 37.9 percent from the arc.
The old saying is that defense wins championships. If that is the case,
Ole Miss may be in contention for a title in 2000-01, especially if the
Rebels can continue to hassle the opposition with their defensive pressure.
Ole Miss is holding its opponents to an average of 62.1 points per game,
which is second in the Southeastern Conference.
OLE MISS PICKED SIXTH IN WEST BY MEDIA
The Ole Miss Rebels were picked to finish in sixth place in the SEC
Western Division in a vote by media members at the annual conference media
days Nov. 1-2 in Birmingham, Ala. Arkansas was picked to win the SEC
Western Division championship, while Tennessee was selected to win both the
SEC overall title and the Eastern Division crown.
THE MAGIC NUMBER IS...
Well, for the Rebels, it seems as if that number is 70. Since the 1996-97
season and including this campaign, Ole Miss has an incredible 79-9 record
(.898 winning percentage) when it scores 70 points or more. On the other
hand, the Rebels are 13-35 when they net less than 70 points during that
five-year period (including 2000-01). Last year, the Rebels were 16-3 when
scoring 70 points or more. This season, Ole Miss has an 8-0 record when
scoring 70 points or more.
...BUT SCORING 70 ISN'T NECESSARY IN 2000-01
As discussed in the previous note, the Rebels have been nearly unbeatable
when they score 70 points or more. However, the 2000-01 Rebels are proving
they can win games when they don't reach that magical number of 70. Ole
Miss is 4-1 this year when scoring less than 70 points, with the lone
setback being a 73-68 loss to Iowa State in the championship game of the
Yahoo! Sports Invitational.
REBELS VERSUS THE SEC EASTERN DIVISION
The Rebels have a 19-35 regular-season record versus teams from the SEC
Eastern Division since the conference began divisional play in the 1991-92
season. Ole Miss is 22-42 versus the SEC Eastern Division teams, including
HITTING ?EM WHEN THEY COUNT
The Rebels haven't had a reputation for hitting a high percentage >from the
charity stripe the last couple of seasons, especially down the stretch in
games. However, that may be changing in 2000-01. Ole Miss is hitting 67.4
percent from the foul line for the season, but more importantly, the Rebels
are hitting their foul shots down the stretch. In their five narrow wins
over Sam Houston State, VCU, Oklahoma, Memphis and Southern Illinois, the
Rebels shot 80 percent from the line (40-of-50) in the final four minutes
(and overtime) of those games.
HAYES HAS CAREER GAME
Redshirt freshman Josh Hayes had the game of his young career Dec. 18 in
the Rebels' victory over Troy State. Hayes scored a career-high 20 points
and also posted career bests of seven field goals and six three-pointers.
For the season, Hayes is shooting 60 percent from the field (12-of-20) and
50 percent from the three-point line (7-of-14).
LOCKHART NEARLY PERFECT
In the Rebels' victory over Southeastern Louisiana Dec. 13, senior Rahim
Lockhart was nearly perfect from the floor. The 6-foot-8 forward finished
the game 10-of-11 from the field, but was 10-of-10 with five minutes left
in the contest. His 90.9 field goal shooting performance is tied for the
second-best, single-game showing in Rebel basketball history.
FLANIGAN UP TO HIS OLD TRICKS
Senior Jason Flanigan has gained a reputation as one of the top defenders
in the Southeastern Conference. That reputation may now extend nationwide
after his three brilliant defensive showings in the Rebel victories over
No. 14-ranked Oklahoma, Kansas State and Memphis.
In the win over the Sooners, Flanigan held Hollis Price, Oklahoma's
leading scorer, to five points on 2-of-8 shooting from the field. Price
came into the contest averaging 17.0 points and hitting 62 percent from the
Then, in the Rebels' next contest versus Kansas State, Flanigan picked up
where he left off in the Oklahoma game. The 6-foot-1 guard held Phineas
Atchison, the Wildcats' top scorer, to seven points on 3-of-10 shooting
>from the floor. Atchison entered the game averaging 14.5 points and
shooting 40.8 percent from the field.
In the Rebels' win over Memphis, Flanigan led the defensive charge against
the Memphis guard trio of Scooter McFadgon, Shyrone Chatman and Marcus
Moody. The trio shot 12 percent (3-of-25) from the field.
LOCKHART RECORDS CAREER HIGH IN STEALS
Senior Rahim Lockhart had a career-high six steals in the Rebels' victory
over Kansas State Dec. 5. Lockhart's previous career best was five steals
on two occasions, with the last time coming in the Rebels' victory over
Southwest Missouri State game in the NIT second round Mar. 21. For his
career, the 6-foot-8 forward has 125 steals.
LOCKHART SETS CAREER HIGH IN BLOCKS
After setting a career high in steals in the Rebels' victory over Kansas
State Dec. 5, Rahim Lockhart followed up with a career high in blocked
shots in Ole Miss' win at Memphis Dec. 9. The 6-foot-8 forward blocked a
career-best five shots versus the Tigers, breaking his previous high of
four. This season, Lockhart leads the Rebels with 26 blocked shots.
FLANIGAN IN THE CLUTCH
Throughout his career, Jason Flanigan has not had the reputation of being
a scorer. However, the last two seasons when the Rebels have needed him to
step forward on the offensive end, the 6-foot-1 guard has responded. He
did it again Dec. 21 versus Southern Illinois. With the Salukis beginning
to take control of the game early in the second half, Flanigan hit three
treys in a three-minute stretch to keep the Rebels to within striking
distance. He also hit two key free throws with six minutes left to widen
the Rebel lead.
In the Rebels' victory over Memphis Dec. 9, Flanigan netted 14 points on
4-of-6 shooting from the field, including three treys. Flanigan nailed a
key three-pointer in the first half to extend the Rebel margin, and later
in the second half, he hit his third trey of the game to halt a Tiger rally.
Earlier this season, Flanigan came up big for the Rebels in their victory
over VCU. With the Rebels fighting to stay in the game, Flanigan answered
consecutive VCU hoops with two baskets of his own. His second bucket -- a
three-pointer -- started a 10-0 Rebel run which cut the Ram advantage to six
at 40-34 at the break. His second three-pointer of the game came during
the Ole Miss comeback in the second half, slicing the VCU lead to 70-68
with 3:13 left in regulation.
CLOSING IN ON THE HEAD OF THE CLASS(ES)
This year's senior class of Jason Flanigan and Rahim Lockhart and junior
redshirt John Engstrom (Paragould, Ark.) are closing in on the record of
most victories by a class in a four-year span. The record is 74 wins by
the 1998-99 class of Hunter Carpenter, Keith Carter, Jason Smith and
Michael White. After Ole Miss' win over Morris Brown Dec. 30, this class
has now won 73 games, just one behind the record. This senior class has
also been a part of the 1998 SEC Western Division championship squad and
has been to three straight postseasons (2 NCAA, 1 NIT).
REED CLUTCH IN THE STRETCH
It's hard to believe that a freshman could be this wise this early, but
Justin Reed (Jackson, Miss.) showed his 'basketball smarts' in the Rebels'
victory over Memphis Dec. 9. After playing only three minutes in the first
half with three fouls, he picked up his fourth early in the second half.
But, Reed returned for the final 10 minutes and made the most of it. He
netted eight of his 10 points in the final 10 minutes, including two huge
baskets (one on a putback as the shot clock expired) and two free throws
with under three minutes to play.
HOLMES NETS CAREER HIGH VS. KANSAS STATE
Senior Jason Holmes scored a career-high 17 points in the Rebels' victory
over Kansas State Dec. 5, breaking his previous high of 15 points versus
Furman in the 1999-2000 campaign. The 6-foot-5 guard also recorded career
bests with six field goals and tied a career high with three treys.
HARPER ON FIRE
Freshman Aaron Harper (Jackson, Miss.) had the hot hand in the Rebels'
victory over No. 14-ranked Oklahoma Dec. 2. The 6-foot-7 forward/guard
missed only one shot in his career-high, 18-point performance versus the
Sooners. Harper was 4-of-5 from the field, with all his field goal
attempts from beyond the three-point arc. He was also 6-of-6 from the
PROVINE POSSE STEPS UP...PART II
The trio of Aaron Harper, Justin Reed and David Sanders (Jackson,
Miss.) -- the 'Provine Posse' -- came up big again in the Rebels' victory over
No. 14-ranked Oklahoma Dec. 2. The trio combined for 38 of Ole Miss' 60
points in the game, with Harper scoring a career-best 18 points. The trio
shot 61.1 percent from the field (11-of-18), 57.1 percent from the
three-point line (4-of-7) and 70.5 percent from the charity stripe
(12-of-17). Harper, Reed and Sanders also combined for nine boards in the
'PROVINE POSSE' COMES UP BIG FOR REBELS...PART I
The Provine High School trio of Aaron Harper, Justin Reed and David
Sanders, nicknamed the 'Provine Posse,' took a couple of games to adjust to
the collegiate level, but they have and came up big in the Rebels' win at
VCU. All three netted double figures in the win, as Reed had 16, Sanders
13 and Harper 10. But, it wasn't as much their scoring as when they
stepped up, and the following charts their big plays in the VCU win:
- Lockhart picked up his second foul at the 11:36 mark of the first half
and went to the bench. From that point, Reed scored eight points and
grabbed seven boards the rest of the half.
- With time running down in the first half, Sanders capped a 10-0 run with
a layup at the buzzer to pull the Rebels to within six at 40-34 at the break.
- Two Harper free throws cut the VCU lead to 71-70 with 1:14 left in
regulation, setting up Jason Harrison's three-point basket to put Ole Miss
ahead 73-72 with under a minute to play.
- Harper nailed a three-pointer to give Ole Miss the lead for good in
overtime at 76-73.
- Sanders hit two free throws with :36 left in overtime to give Ole Miss an
- Harper clinched the victory with two free throws with :06 on the clock.
REED POSTS FIRST DOUBLE-DOUBLE
Freshman Justin Reed recorded the first double-double of his collegiate
career in the Rebels' victory over Virginia Commonwealth Nov. 25. Reed had
16 points and 13 boards, which are career highs. The 6-foot-8 forward also
had one blocked shot and two steals in the win.
Talk about a 'homecourt-advantage' series between Ole Miss and Vanderbilt.
Vanderbilt has won 10 straight over the Rebels in Memorial Gym (last Ole
Miss win in 1984-85 season), while Ole Miss has won seven straight over the
Commodores in Oxford (last Vanderbilt win in 1988-89 season)...Both Ole
Miss and Vanderbilt were picked to finish last in their respective SEC
divisions...Vanderbilt is the lone Eastern Division team that Ole Miss has
a winning record against (6-4) since the SEC went to two divisions...David
Sanders dished out a career-best six assists versus Morris Brown.
