    BARNES IN FIRST YEAR AT HELM OF REBEL PROGRAM
    Rod Barnes is in his first season at the helm of the Ole Miss Rebel basketball program. He posted his first victory as head coach on Nov. 13 when the Rebels defeated Alabama State, 87-45. He now has a 7-2 record after the Rebels fell to Memphis, 78-72 in overtime on Dec. 12. 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 (16th; 1,201 points), assists (2nd; 456) and steals (6th; 154).

    SCOUTING ST. JOSEPH'S
    St. Joseph's, a member of the Atlantic 10 Conference, enters the Puerto Rico Holiday Classic with a 3-3 overall record. The Hawks were probably one of the last teams to begin their 1998-99 schedule, as they tipped off versus Tulsa on Nov. 28. St. Joseph's has won its last two games with victories over Tennessee (55-53) and Akron (71-60). Sophomore guard N'aim Crenshaw leads the Hawks' offensive attack with a 13.2 scoring average. Andre Howard (12.2 ppg) and Rob Haskins (10.7 ppg) are also averaging in double figures for the Hawks. Howard also leads the team on the boards with a 10.0 rebounding average. Freshman center Damian Reid is the squad's second-leading rebounder with a 9.2 average. St. Joseph's, as a team, is averaging 63.0 points per game, and is shooting 37.9 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from the free throw line. The Hawks are out-rebounding the opposition by an average of 7.5 boards per game (40.3-32.8).

    OLE MISS-ST. JOSEPH'S SERIES
    The two schools will meet for only the second time in the first round of the Puerto Rico Holiday Classic. The Rebels won the only previous meeting, a 59-51 victory to open the 1987-88 season. That game was also a regular-season tournament, first-round contest in the MCI Harbor Classic in Baltimore, Md.

    BARNES AMONG ELITE COACHING GROUP
    Ole Miss head coach Rod Barnes is a member of a very special group in Rebel basketball history with his 7-2 start to the 1998-99 season. He is one of only five coaches in Rebel basketball history to start their first season with a 7-2 record or better. The other four coaches are B.Y. Walton (7-2; 1911-12), R.L. Sullivan (7-2; 1919-20), Homer Hazel (8-1; 1925-26) and Ed Murphy (7-2; 1986-87). Prior to the Rebels' loss at Memphis on Dec. 12, Barnes was only the second coach in Ole Miss basketball history to begin his first season at the helm with a 7-1 record. Hazel (1925-26) was the only other Rebel coach to begin his first campaign with a 7-1 record. In that 1925-26 season, Hazel went 16-1 before losing the last game of the season for a final record of 16-2 in his first year.

    REBELS VERSUS THE ATLANTIC 10
    Ole Miss has a 4-5 all-time record against teams in the Atlantic 10 Conference. The Rebels are 1-0 versus St. Joseph's and Fordham, 1-1 versus Virginia Tech, 1-3 versus Temple and 0-1 versus Dayton. The Rebels have not played Duquesne, George Washington, La Salle, Massachusetts, St. Bonaventure, Rhode Island and Xavier. Ole Miss' last win versus a team >from the Atlantic 10 Conference was an 87-74 victory over Temple last year.

    Earlier this season, Ole Miss fell to Temple, 68-52 in Philadelphia.

    THERE'S A FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING
    For the first time in Ole Miss basketball history, the Rebels will be playing a regular-season game outside the continental United States when they travel to San Juan, Puerto Rico, to participate in the Puerto Rico Holiday Classic. In fact, the Rebels will play three games outside the continental U.S., beginning with a first-round contest versus St. Joseph's on Dec. 21. Ole Miss will continue play in the tournament on Dec. 22-23. However, this trip will not be the first-ever trip for the Rebel basketball program outside the continental U.S. Ole Miss traveled to Australia in May 1997 following the 1996-97 season. Ole Miss posted a 5-0 record on its exhibition tour in the "Land Down Under." Keith Carter (Perryville, Ark.), a senior on this year's Rebel team, led Ole Miss in scoring in the five games with a 22.0 average.

    REBELS TOUGH ON NON-CONFERENCE FOES IN RECENT YEARS
    In last seven years (including 1998-99), the Rebels have posted a 47-22 record (.681 winning percentage) versus non-conference opponents. Non-conference foes have found Ole Miss especially tough the last four seasons (1995-96, 1996-97, 1997-98, 1998-99), as the Rebels have an impressive 30-9 mark (.769 winning percentage) against out-of-conference teams. The following shows Ole Miss' non-conference record over the previous seven years, including 1998-99:

        1992-93     5-5 
        1993-94     7-3 
        1994-95     5-5 
        1995-96     6-4    
        1996-97     8-2
        1997-98     9-1
        1998-99     7-2 
    
    A REUNION OF SORTS
    The Ole Miss-St. Joseph's first-round match-up in the Puerto Rico Holiday Classic will be a reunion of sorts for Rebel senior guard Keith Carter and Hawks' head coach Phil Martelli. This past summer, Carter and Martelli helped lead the U.S. team to the gold medal at the 1998 Goodwill Games in New York. Martelli served as an assistant coach on Clem Haskins' staff, while Carter saw action in all five contests and played an integral role in the U.S. team winning the gold.

    OLE MISS IN REGULAR SEASON TOURNAMENTS
    The Rebels have an all-time record of 46-50 (.479 winning percentage) in regular season tournaments in their history. Last season, Ole Miss finished second in the CVC Classic at Ball State, falling to the host Cardinals, 70-66 in the title game. The Rebels' last regular season tournament title came in the 1993-94 season, a 78-74 victory over Southern Mississippi in the Cellular South/Mississippi Beach Shootout (one-game tournament). The last time Ole Miss won a two-day tournament title was in the 1988-89 campaign when the Rebels claimed the Bayou Classic championship with wins over Southern (90-88) and Nicholls State (74-53). The Puerto Rico Holiday Classic will be only the fourth three-day tournament for the Rebels in their history. The last three-day tournament came in the 1972-73 season when Ole Miss finished fourth in the All-College Tournament in Oklahoma City, Okla. The Rebels' other three-day tournaments were the Gulf South Tournament (Shreveport, La.) in 1960-61 and the All-American City Tournament (Owensboro, Ky.) in 1954-55.

    STEALING HIS WAY UP THE CHARTS
    Senior Jason Smith (Wheatley, Ark.) broke into the top five on the Rebel career steals chart in Ole Miss' game at Memphis on Dec. 12. He had four swipes versus Memphis, bringing his career total to 156. He passed both Rod Barnes (154) and Elston Turner (155). Up next for Smith is Joe Ayers, who has 157 steals. Smith is tied for the team lead in steals with 18 this season.

    CARTER JUMPS TO NO. 13 ON CAREER SCORING CHART
    Senior All-America candidate Keith Carter moved into the No. 13 spot on Ole Miss career scoring chart after his 18-point performance versus Memphis on Dec. 12. Carter now has 1,273 career points. Up next for Carter is Cob Jarvis (1952-54), who scored 1,313 career points. 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.

    SMITH CLOSING IN; PASSES 900-POINT PLATEAU
    Senior All-SEC candidate Jason Smith (Wheatley, Ark.) is drawing ever closer to becoming the 24th player in Ole Miss basketball history to eclipse the 1,000-point plateau. After scoring 18 points in the Rebels' game versus Memphis on Dec. 12, Smith now has 971 career points and needs 29 points to reach the 1,000-point mark. For the season, Smith is third on the team in scoring with a 12.2 average.

    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 14.8 points (leads the team) and 4.7 rebounds per game.

    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 61 victories, which is tied for the sixth 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
    1935-36 to 1938-39         63
    1994-95 to 1997-98         62
    1978-79 to 1981-82         62
    1923-24 to 1926-27         62
    1995-96 to present         61
    1980-81 to 1983-84         61
    1936-37 to 1939-40         61
    1934-35 to 1937-38         61
    
    WHITE CLOSING IN ON 300 ASSIST PLATEAU
    Senior guard Michael White (Tempe, Ariz.) is nearing a milestone in his career. With four more assists, White will reach the 300-assists plateau. White enters the Puerto Rico Holiday Classic with 296 career assists. This season, the 6-foot-1 guard leads the team in that statistical category with 24.

    SMITH'S IN THE GROOVE
    Entering the 1998-99 season, senior Jason Smith knew that he would have to pick up some of the scoring load with the departures of Ansu Sesay, Joezon Darby and Anthony Boone. Smith had a slow start to the season, but has turned it on in the Rebels' last four games. Since the Northeast Louisiana game on Dec. 2, Smith has scored in double figures in every game, including a season-best 19 points in the win over the Indians. In the last four games, Smith is averaging 16.3 points and 5.0 rebounds per contest. He is also shooting 56.9 percent from the field (29-of-51).

    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 530 career rebounds, and is averaging 4.8 rebounds per game this season.

    HICKS ON A (SCORING) ROLL
    Despite scoring only 10 points versus Memphis on Dec. 12, junior transfer Marcus Hicks (Jackson, Tenn.) has been putting up the numbers on the offensive end. In the Rebels' last four games, Hicks has scored in double figures, including three consecutive 20-plus point performances versus Northeast Louisiana (Dec. 2; 20 points), Louisville (Dec. 5; 24) and West Alabama (Dec. 7; 21). His 24 points versus Louisville were a career high. He scored his career-high 24 points on 11-of-13 shooting from the field (.846) and 2-of-4 from the free throw line. Hicks also recorded a career-high four assists in the win over Louiville. In the Rebels' win over Alabama A&M on Nov. 23, Hicks posted his first double-double at Ole Miss with 17 points and 13 rebounds. The 13 boards were a career high. Hicks is second on the team in scoring (14.0 ppg) and leads the squad in field goal percentage (.679) and rebounding (6.3 rpg). Hicks is also ranked second in the Southeastern Conference in field goal percentage.

    HICKS RANKED NO. 8 IN NATION IN FIELD GOAL PERCENTAGE
    Junior transfer Marcus Hicks is ranked among the nation's field goal percentage leaders, which was released by the NCAA on Dec. 14. Hicks is ranked eighth in the country in field goal percentage at 67.9 percent. New Mexico's Damion Walker is the nation's leader at 75.0 percent. The Rebels are also ranked among three NCAA team statistical categories. Ole Miss is No. 9 in scoring offense, No. 2 in scoring margin and No. 14 in field goal percentage.

    DID YOU KNOW?
    Rod Barnes is the first Rebel head coach to have played his collegiate basketball at Ole Miss since Cob Jarvis. Jarvis, who was a two-time All-Southeastern Conference first teamer in 1953 and 1954, was a three-year letterwinner for the Rebels and is still in the No. 12 spot on the Ole Miss career scoring chart with 1,313 points. He coached the Rebels from 1968-76 and compiled an 87-117 record.

    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.

    ROGERS RECORDS CAREER HIGH VERSUS MEMPHIS
    Senior Johnnie Rogers (Laurel, Miss.) scored a career-high 11 points in the Rebels' game versus Memphis on Dec. 12. Rogers netted his career high on 5-of-6 shooting from the field and 1-of-2 from the free throw line. Rogers' previous career best was 10 points in Ole Miss' 1996-97 season-opening victory over Portland State. In the Dec. 12 contest, Rogers also pulled down a season-best seven rebounds.

    GETTING THE REBELS GOING
    When it comes to someone on the Ole Miss team to get the Rebel offense going, look no further than senior Jon Cantrell (Germantown, Tenn.). In the Rebels' Dec. 5 victory over Louisville, Cantrell nailed a critical three-pointer to put the Rebels back on track. Prior to Cantrell's three-pointer, the Rebels found themselves down 10-2 at the 15:50 mark of the first half. Cantrell's trey cut the Cardinal lead to 10-5 and ignited an Ole Miss run which propelled the Rebels to a 50-37 halftime lead. However, it is not the first time in which Cantrell has started an Ole Miss run. Last season, Cantrell's treys in the Jan. 24 game versus Mississippi State and the Feb. 18 contest at LSU helped start spurts for the Rebels. Ole Miss won both games. This season, Cantrell is averaging 5.4 points and 2.0 rebounds. He is shooting 38.5 percent from the arc.

    DE-FENSE, DE-FENSE
    The Rebel defense is playing at the top of its game, and the numbers prove it. In the Southeastern Conference statistics released on Dec. 16, Ole Miss is first in the league in turnover margin (+7.33), second in scoring margin (+26.8), seventh in field goal percentage defense (.384) and second in three-point field goal percentage defense (.286). In their seven home games, the Rebels have won by an average of 37.6 points per game.

    OLE MISS PUTTING UP THE POINTS
    While the Rebel defense is playing well, Ole Miss is not looking too bad on the offensive end. Ole Miss is averaging 86.7 points per game, which ranks first in the Southeastern Conference. The Rebels are first in the SEC in field goal percentage (.500) and second in scoring margin (+26.8).

    LOCKHART HAS A CAREER NIGHT
    Sophomore forward Rahim Lockhart (Mendenhall, Miss.) has improved his game since last season, and it has paid dividends for the Rebels. In Ole Miss' 95-62 win over Northeast Louisiana on Dec. 2, the 6-foot-8 forward posted career highs of 16 points, five assists and four steals. He tied his career best in rebounding with eight boards versus the Indians. Earlier this season, Lockhart also tied a career high with three blocked shots. Lockhart is fourth on the team with an 9.0 scoring average and is second on the squad with a 5.4 rebounding average. He leads the team with 11 blocked shots.

    TIP-INS...
