    CARTER JUMPS TO NO. 12 ON CAREER SCORING CHART
    Senior All-America candidate Keith Carter (Perryville, Ark.) moved into the No. 12 spot on Ole Miss career scoring chart after scoring 46 points in the three-game Puerto Rico Holiday Classic. Carter now has 1,353 career points, after scoring six points in the Rebels' game at Vanderbilt on Jan. 2. Up next for Carter is Tim Jumper (1988-91), who scored 1,375 points in his career. On his current pace of averaging 15.2 points per game, Carter could climb as high as No. 6 on the Ole Miss career scoring chart by the end of the regular season. In the Rebels' victory over Alabama A&M on Nov. 23, Carter passed his head coach, Rod Barnes, on the Ole Miss career scoring chart. Barnes scored 1,201 points in his career from 1985-88.

    A WINNING CLASS
    The 1999 senior class will go down in Ole Miss basketball history as helping produce one of the most successful runs for the Rebels. Theses six seniors have helped the Rebels to win consecutive Southeastern Conference Western Division titles, the first regular season championships of any kind for the Ole Miss basketball program. They also helped Ole Miss earn back-to-back NCAA Tournament berths. Well, the senior class seems to be on track for another first in Rebel basketball history. The 1999 senior class has posted 64 victories, which is the second most for a four-year span in Rebel basketball history. The following charts lists the most successful (in terms of number of victories) in Ole Miss history:

    Four-Year Span No. of Wins 1979-80 to 1982-83 70 1995-96 to present 64 1935-36 to 1938-39 63 1994-95 to 1997-98 62 1978-79 to 1981-82 62 1923-24 to 1926-27 62 1980-81 to 1983-84 61 1936-37 to 1939-40 61 1934-35 to 1937-38 61

    CARTER NAMED PRESEASON NAISMITH CANDIDATE
    Senior Keith Carter was named as one of 20 preseason candidates for the 1999 Naismith College Player of the Year, as announced by the Atlanta Tipoff Club in early October. Carter is one of four players from the Southeastern Conference to be named among the preseason candidates. Georgia's Jumaine Jones, South Carolina's BJ McKie and Kentucky's Scott Padgett were also among the 20 preseason candidates for the player of the year honor.

    This past summer, Carter played an integral role in helping lead the USA Goodwill Games Team to a 4-1 record and the gold medal. It was the first time that a USA amateur team had won gold in international play since 1986. In the five games, Carter averaged 7.8 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.0 assists, while shooting 48.1 percent from the field and 40 percent from the three-point arc.

    Following the 1997-98 season, the Perryville, Ark., native was named to the Associated Press All-Southeastern Conference second team. This season, Carter is averaging 15.2 points (leads the team) and 4.2 rebounds per game.

    WHITE REACHES 300 ASSIST PLATEAU; TIED CAREER HIGH WITH NINE ASSISTS VERSUS PRAIRIE VIEW
    Senior guard Michael White (Tempe, Ariz.) reached a milestone in his career when he recorded the 300th assist in the Puerto Rico Holiday Classic Dec. 21-23. White recorded his 300th assist in the Rebels' first-round victory over St. Joseph's on Dec. 21, and now has 318 assists for his career.

    This season, the 6-foot-1 guard leads the team in that statistical category with 45. In the Rebels' victory over Prairie View A&M on Dec. 29, White tied his career high with nine assists versus the Panthers. In the Rebels' last two games, White has dished out 13 assists while committing only one turnover.

    (THREE-POINT) BOMBS AWAY!!!
    The Prairie View A&M Panthers had to run for cover on Dec. 29, as the Rebels hit 12 three-pointers in their 111-50 win. It was the second time this season that Ole Miss had hit 12 three-pointers in a game, with the Rebels' first 12 three-pointer performance coming against Austin Peay State on Nov. 28. The 12 treys in both contests are the most by an Ole Miss squad since the Rebels nailed 13 three-pointers versus Arkansas on Jan. 18, 1992. Senior All-America candidate Keith Carter led the Rebel three-point shooting parade, hitting 8 of his 10 attempts from beyond the arc. Carter's eight three-pointers were a single-game record, breaking his own previous record of seven. Carter hit seven treys in the Rebels' 87-74 victory over Temple on Nov. 22, 1997.

    SMITH BREAKS 500
    Senior All-SEC candidate Jason Smith broke 500, and it was a good thing. With his five rebounds versus Temple on Nov. 18, Smith joined the 500-rebound club at Ole Miss. Smith now has 552 career rebounds, and is averaging 4.6 rebounds per game this season.

    "GET THAT SHOT OUTTA HERE!"
    That saying has become the personal motto for senior forward Johnnie Rogers (Laurel, Miss.) throughout his career at Ole Miss. The 6-foot-9 forward is second on the squad with 13 blocked shots in only nine games this year. In the Rebels' Jan. 2 game at Vanderbilt, Rogers recorded the 100th blocked shot of his career. His 100 blocks put him in third place on the Rebel career chart. The last two seasons, Rogers has led the Rebel squad in blocked shots with 39 in 1996-97 and 48 in 1997-98. Rogers' career high for blocked shots is six which he has set on three occasions. He recorded six blocks versus LSU (Feb. 18, 1998), Louisiana Tech (Nov. 19, 1997) and Davidson (Dec. 2, 1996).

    REBELS PICKED TO FINISH THIRD IN SEC WESTERN DIVISION
    In the Southeastern Conference media day voting, Ole Miss was picked to finished third in the SEC Western Division. Arkansas was the overwhelming choice to win the Western Division, with Auburn picked to finish second. Mississippi State was fourth followed by Alabama and LSU. In the SEC Eastern Division, Kentucky was picked to finish first followed by Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Vanderbilt. The Wildcats were also selected to win the overall SEC championship.

    TIP-INS...
