LAST YEAR'S MEETING
January 23, 1999
Ole Miss 85, Georgia 76

Senior All-America candidate Keith Carter scored a game-high 26 points, and freshman Darrian Brown added 13 points to lead Ole Miss to an 85-76 victory over Georgia. Jason Harrison (11 points) and Marcus Hicks (11) also scored in double figures for the Rebels.

Jumaine Jones led Georgia with a double-double of 16 points and 14 rebounds. Freshman D.A. Layne (14 points), Michael Chadwick (12) and G.G. Smith (11) were also in double figures for the Bulldogs.

Ole Miss held a 48-36 lead at the break, and opened the second half with a 7-0 run to increase its advantage to 55-36. Carter fueled the spurt with five points. The Bulldogs, however, fought back with an 11-0 run of their own to cut the Rebel lead to 55-47 at the 14:56 mark. Georgia continued to cut into the Ole Miss advantage, drawing as close as six points (67-61) with 8:28 left in the game. The Rebels then held off Bulldog run with an 8-3 spurt to put the game out of reach.

In the first half, the game was tied at 13-all, but an 8-0 run by the Rebels gave them the lead for good. Georgia cut the lead to one at 23-22, but was unable to regain the advantage.

Ole Miss shot 50.9 percent from the field and 47.6 percent (10-of-21) from the three-point line. The Bulldogs hit 42.9 percent from the field and 88 percent from the free throw line (22-of-25).

BARNES IN SECOND SEASON AS REBEL MENTOR
Rod Barnes is in his second season at the helm of the Ole Miss Rebel basketball program. With the Rebels' win over South Carolina on Feb. 9, Barnes' overall coaching record now stands at 35-20. In his first season in 1998-99, Barnes guided Ole Miss to a 20-13 overall record and a third straight NCAA Tournament appearance. The Satartia, Miss., native became the first head coach in the history of Rebel basketball to win 20 games in his first season. Last 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, after Rob Evans left to take the head coaching position at Arizona State on April 6. 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).

BARNES THIRD FASTEST TO 35 WINS
With the Rebels' win over South Carolina on Feb. 9, Ole Miss head coach Rod Barnes posted his 35th victory in only the 55th game in his career as the Rebel mentor. Barnes reached the 35-win plateau the third fastest of any head coach in Ole Miss basketball history. See the following chart:

FEBRUARY...YOU'RE FINALLY HERE
February is the month the Rebels have been waiting for, and it's finally here. The past four seasons (1995-96, 1996-97, 1997-98, 1998-99), Ole Miss has played well in the month of February, posting a 20-9 mark (.690 winning percentage). With their 2-0 record in February this year, the Rebels' mark in the month since 1996 is 22-9. The following chart shows the Rebels' success in the month of February over the past five seasons:

ALMOST, BUT...
Ole Miss head coach Rod Barnes and Georgia head coach Jim Harrick "almost" met on the court before their first encounter this Saturday in Athens. Again, it was an "almost" encounter. Barnes' Rebels and Harrick's Rhode Island Rams both were playing in the NCAA Midwest Region first/second round site in Milwaukee last year. Ole Miss and Rhode Island would have met in the Sweet Sixteen in St. Louis had both teams continued to advance in the tournament. The Rebels fell to Michigan State in the second round, while Rhode Island lost to North Carolina Charlotte in the first round.

FLANIGAN BREAKS 200 ASSISTS, TIES CAREER HIGH
Junior guard Jason Flanigan (Little Rock, Ark.) reached a milestone in the Rebels' 83-75 victory over South Carolina on Feb. 9, surpassing the 200-assist plateau for his career. After his career-high tying nine-assist performance versus the Gamecocks, Flanigan now has 206 for his career. He also dished out nine assists versus Northwestern State during his freshman campaign in 1997-98. This season, the 6-foot-1 guard has 77 assists (second on team), and is ranked 10th in the SEC in that statistical category.

HARRISON CLOSING IN ON 200 ASSISTS
Sophomore Jason Harrison (Little Rock, Ark.) is also closing in on the 200-assist plateau. With his three assists versus South Carolina on Feb. 9, Harrison now has 174 for his career. He recorded the 150th assist of his career in the Rebels' game versus Mississippi State on Jan. 12. The 5-foot-5 guard leads the team with 88 assists this season, and is ranked seventh in the SEC in assists. Harrison is also on pace to become the first Rebel since Cedric Brim in 1994-95 to have 100 assists or more in a season.

THE MAGIC NUMBER IS...
Well, for the Rebels, it seems as if that number is 70. In the past four seasons (1996-97, 1997-98, 1998-99, 1999-2000), Ole Miss has an incredible 69-8 record (.896 winning percentage) when it scores 70 points or more in a game. On the other hand, the Rebels are 7-28 when they net less than 70 points in a game. This year, the Rebels are 13-2 when scoring 70 points or more. In SEC action the last four seasons (1996-97, 1997-98, 1998-99, 1999-2000), Ole Miss has a 33-5 record (.868 winning percentage) when scoring 70 or more points.

SOMETHING GOOD EVENTUALLY COMES...
And it did on Jan. 22 when the Rebels upset then-No.4 Auburn, 79-77 in overtime. Since the skid, Ole Miss is 3-1. Although the Rebels are only 3-6 in Southeastern Conference play, the Ole Miss basketball program has proven resilient in recent years after losing streaks. The following charts that:

SHOOTING THE LIGHTS OUT
For the third time this season, Ole Miss shot 60 percent or better from the field in its victory over Arkansas on Feb. 2. The Rebels hit 61.2 percent from the floor versus the Razorbacks, and also shot better than 60 percent in wins over Southeastern Louisiana (63 percent, Dec. 15) and Birmingham-Southern (62 percent, Jan. 2). It is the first time the Rebels have shot 60 percent or better in three games in the same season since the inception of the shot clock in the mid-1980s. Prior to that Dec. 15 game versus Southeastern Louisiana, the last time the Rebels shot 60 percent or better from the field came in a 98-70 win over Lamar on Dec. 4, 1993. Ole Miss hit 60.3 percent in that victory.

"GET THAT SHOT OUTTA HERE!!!"
With his three blocked shots versus Arkansas on Feb. 2, junior Rahim Lockhart (Mendenhall, Miss.) moved into the top five on the Ole Miss career blocked shot chart. The 6-foot-8 forward currently has 74 career blocks and is No. 5 on the chart. He passed former Rebel Ronnie Sims, who recorded 71 blocked shots in his career from 1985-86. Lockhart leads the Rebels in blocked shots this season with 37, and is ranked fifth in the SEC in blocks.

HICKS EXPLODES FOR CAREER HIGH VERSUS ARKANSAS
Two times earlier this season, senior Marcus Hicks (Jackson, Tenn.) broke his previous career high for scoring. Now, make it three times. In the Rebels' Feb. 2 win over Arkansas, Hicks netted a career-high 31 points, besting his previous high of 27 points versus Kentucky on Jan. 19. Hicks scored his 31 points on 12-of-16 shooting from the field and 7-of-12 from the free throw line. The 12 field goals tied a career best. The following shows Hicks' career-high scoring games:

Career High Previous Career High

31 vs. Arkansas (Feb. 2, 2000)27 vs. Kentucky (Jan. 19, 2000)
27 vs. Kentucky (Jan. 19, 2000)26 vs. McNeese St. (Nov. 23, 1999)
26 vs. McNeese St. (Nov. 23, 1999)24 vs. Louisville (Dec. 5, 1998)

HICKS DOUBLING HIS PLEASURE
Senior Marcus Hicks recorded his second double-double of the 1999-2000 season in the Rebels' win over Arkansas on Feb. 2. The 6-foot-6 forward scored a career-high 31 points and grabbed a season-best tying 10 boards against the Razorbacks. His first double-double of the season was a 27-point, 10-board performance versus Kentucky on Jan. 19. The Arkansas game was Hicks' fourth double-double of his career, as he also had double-double performances versus Alabama A&M (17-13, Nov. 23, 1998) and Florida (20-10, Feb. 6, 1999) last season.

HICKS REACHES 700-POINT MILESTONE
Senior Marcus Hicks reached another milestone in his Rebel career, surpassing the 700-point plateau in Ole Miss' victory over Arkansas on Feb. 2. The 6-foot-6 forward entered the Arkansas game with 684 points, and after his 31-point performance versus the Razorbacks, he had 715 points. With his 18 points versus South Carolina on Feb. 9, Hicks now has 733 career points in 55 games. He scored point No. 700 on a layup with 2:12 left in the first half versus Arkansas. On Jan. 8, Hicks passed the 600-point plateau, scoring point No. 600 on a free throw at the 16:53 mark of the first half versus the Gators. Earlier this season, Hicks reached the 500-point plateau in the Rebels' game at Oklahoma on Dec. 4. Hicks entered the game with 492 points, and scored his 500th point on a free throw at the 3:10 mark of the first half versus the Sooners.

HICKS ALSO PASSES 300-REBOUND MARK
Senior Marcus Hicks really doubled his pleasure in the Rebels' win over Arkansas on Feb. 2. Hicks' double-double of 31 points and 10 rebounds not only allowed him to reach the 700-point milestone but also surpass the 300-rebound mark. The 6-foot-6 forward entered the Arkansas game with 292 career boards, and his 10 rebounds versus the Razorbacks gave him 302. He now has 309 after grabbing seven boards versus South Carolina on Feb. 9. This season, Hicks is the Rebels' second-leading rebounder with a 5.9 average. He was also the team's second-leading rebounder in 1998-99 with a 5.4 average. Hicks came to Ole Miss from Northwest Mississippi C.C., where he compiled 624 rebounds in two seasons from 1996-98.

LOCKHART REACHES 400-REBOUND MILESTONE
Junior Rahim Lockhart has been a rebounding machine for the Rebels this season, and as a result of his board prowess, he has reached the 400-rebound plateau for his career. With his five boards versus Arkansas on Feb. 2, the 6-foot-8 forward reached the 400-board plateau. After recording nine boards versus South Carolina, he now has 409 career rebounds. Lockhart entered the 1999-2000 season with 220 career rebounds, and has grabbed 189 so far this year. Lockhart leads the Rebels with an 8.6 rebounding average.

AN ALL-STAR REUNION
Saturday's contest will be an all-star reunion-of sorts. Ole Miss head coach Rod Barnes, Rebel senior forward Marcus Hicks and Georgia junior guard Adrian Jones were all members of the Southeastern Conference All-Stars that traveled to Japan last August. Barnes, who served as the team's co-head coach with LSU's John Brady, guided the SEC All-Stars to a 4-1 record versus the Japan National Team. Hicks averaged 10 points and 6.2 boards, and led the team in rebounding, blocked shots and field goal percentage. Jones played in all five games and averaged 2.8 points and 3.0 rebounds.

WADE PLAYING WELL FOR THE REBELS
Freshman Emmanuel Wade (Marianna, Ark.) has come on strong of late for the Rebels-especially in the last five games . The 6-foot-3 guard is averaging 10.0 points and 3.0 boards in the five-game stretch. He is also shooting 52.9 percent (18-of-34) from the field and 50 percent (7-of-14) from the three-point arc in the last five games. He had a career game versus Alabama on Jan. 29, recording career bests of 19 points, seven field goals and four treys. His previous career bests were points (14), field goals (6) and treys (2) came versus Birmingham-Southern on Jan. 2. In the Rebels' victory over South Carolina on Feb. 9, Wade grabbed a career-best five rebounds.

LOCKHART DOUBLES HIS PLEASURE-A 10TH TIME
Junior Rahim Lockhart has certainly doubled his pleasure for the Rebels in 1999-2000, as he has recorded 10 double-doubles. Lockhart is currently averaging 12.7 points (16th in SEC) and 8.6 rebounds (3rd in SEC). The following charts Lockhart's double-doubles this season:

Arkansas1410

The junior forward now has 11 career double-doubles, as his first came last season against Tennessee (Feb. 17, 16 pts-12 rebs).

ANOTHER FIRST FOR BARNES
One would think that, after a successful first season as head coach in 1998-99, Rebel mentor Rod Barnes had already done it all. Close, but not quite. Barnes recorded another coaching first in his career with the Rebels' win over Auburn on Jan. 22. With that 79-77 overtime win over the then-No. 4 ranked Tigers, Barnes posted his first coaching victory over a top-10 team. Last season, Barnes recorded three wins over top-25 teams (#19, #21 Arkansas twice, #23 Oklahoma).

REBELS VERSUS THE SEC EASTERN DIVISION
The Rebels have an 18-34 regular-season record versus teams from the SEC Eastern Division since the conference began divisional play in the 1991-92 season. Ole Miss is 21-40 versus the SEC Eastern Division teams, including tournament play. The Rebels, however, posted a 10-8 record (regular season only) versus their Eastern Division foes the previous three seasons (1996-97, 1997-98, 1998-99). The following charts show the Rebels' year-by-year record versus the SEC Eastern Division and their mark against each school from the Eastern Division (includes tournament games):

TIP-INS...
With one more victory, Ole Miss would guarantee its fourth consecutive winning season. The last time the Rebel basketball program put together four straight winning seasons was 1979-80 through 1982-83 (17-13, 16-14, 18-12, 19-12). The last time the Rebels had more than four consecutive winning campaigns was nine straight from 1919-20 through 1927-28...Since being moved to the point guard spot, Jason Flanigan has averaged 8.0 assists per game (7 vs. Arkansas, 9 vs. South Carolina)...Freshman forward John Gunn (Oxford, Miss.) missed the South Carolina game as a result of mononucleosis...Ole Miss has shot 70 percent or better from the free throw line in three of its last four games-all Rebel wins (versus Auburn, Arkansas and South Carolina)...Saturday's game will feature three of the four top rebounders in the SEC. Georgia's Anthony Evans is first in the league at 9.1 boards per game, while Ole Miss' Rahim Lockhart (8.6 rpg) and Georgia's Shon Coleman (8.6 rpg) are third and fourth, respectively.
