LAST MEETING

Dec. 2, 1998
Ole Miss 95, Louisiana-Monroe 62

Ole Miss junior transfer Marcus Hicks scored a game-high 20 points, and senior Jason Smith added 19 points to lead the Rebels to a 95-62 victory over Louisiana-Monroe. Sophomore Rahim Lockhart (16 points) and senior All-America candidate Keith Carter (14) also scored in double figures for Ole Miss.

Mike Smith led three Indians in double figures with 19 points. Jimmy Walton (18) and Wojciech Myrda (10) also netted double figures for Louisiana-Monroe. Myrda and Matt Hogarth each grabbed 10 rebounds apiece to lead the Indians.

Ole Miss jumped out to an early 11-2 lead, but a 15-5 run ? sparked by Walton's two treys ? gave Louisiana-Monroe a 17-16 lead at the 12:19 mark of the first half. The Rebels quickly regained the advantage, and outscored Louisiana-Monroe, 38-12 the remainder of the first half to take a 54-29 lead at the break and put the game out of reach.

The Rebels shot 46.3 percent from the field and 72.0 percent from the charity stripe. Louisiana-Monroe hit 40.3 percent from the floor. Ole Miss out-rebounded the Indians, 47-40.

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 Southeastern Louisiana on Dec. 15, Barnes' overall coaching record now stands at 29-14. 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 h ead 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).

HEY, DON'T WE KNOW YOU?...PART ONE

When the Louisiana-Monroe Indians take the floor on Sunday, they will see a familiar face on the Ole Miss bench. Wayne Brent, a second-year assistant coach for the Rebels, is a 1989 graduate of Louisiana-Monroe and played two years for the Indians in 1987-88 and 1988-89. The Indians posted a 21-9 record in 1987-88 and advanced to the NIT, and followed that season with a 17-12 mark in 1988-89. Following graduation, Brent served as a graduate assistant coach for Louisiana-Monroe from 1989-91. During those two years, the Indians recorded consecutive 20-win campaigns and received two straight NCAA Tournament bids. In addition to his Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism (1989), Brent also earned a Bachelor of Arts in Health and Human Performance (1992) and a Masters of Education in Health and Human Performance (1992).

HEY, DON'T WE KNOW YOU?...PART TWO

Ole Miss fans may see a familiar face on the Tad Smith Coliseum floor on Sunday, and it will be the face of former Rebel athletic director Warner Alford. Alford, who served as the Ole Miss athletic director from 1978-94, was named athletic director at Louisiana-Monroe on June 30, 1999. Prior to his post as athletic director at Ole Miss, Alford served as assistant athletic director for the Rebel athletic department from 1974-78. A 1961 graduate of Ole Miss, Alford was co-captain of the 1960 Rebel football team which won the SEC championship and the Football Writers of America Association (FWAA) national title. After his playing days, Alford served as the Rebels' defensive line coach from 1971-73.

OLE MISS VERSUS THE SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE

The Rebels have an all-time record of 31-6 (.838 winning percentage) versus current members of the Southland Conference. Ole Miss has played Southeastern Louisiana (12-0), Sam Houston State (4-0), Northwestern State (2-0), Nicholls State (2-0), McNeese State (6-1), Lamar (1-1) and Louisiana-Monroe (4-4) in its history. Earlier this season, the Rebels defeated McNeese State (86-59) and Southeastern Louisiana (77-46).

OLE MISS TOUGH AT HOME VERSUS NON-CONFERENCE FOES

In recent years, the Rebels have been tough on all opponents entering Tad Smith Coliseum (a.k.a. the "Tad Pad"). Entering the 1998-99 season, Ole Miss had a 20-game homecourt win streak, and the Rebels extended that streak to 29 games before falling to nationally-ranked Auburn on Jan. 13, 1999. Despite the overall homecourt win streak coming to an end, the Rebels still have another homecourt streak intact-consecutive home wins versus non-conference opponents. Ole Miss entered the 1999-2000 season with the eighth-longest homecourt win streak versus non-conference opponents. With their win over Southeastern Louisiana on Dec. 15, the Rebels' streak reached 30 straight, and Ole Miss now has the third-longest streak (since the start of the 1999-2000 season, New Mexico, North Carolina, Clemson and Southwest Texas have lost at home). The following chart shows the nation's top homecourt winning streaks versus non-conference opponents:

REBELS TOUGH ON NON-CONFERENCE FOES IN RECENT YEARS

In last eight years (including the 1999-2000 season), the Rebels have posted a 60-27 record (.690 winning percentage) versus non-conference opponents. Non-conference foes have found Ole Miss especially tough the last five seasons (1995-96, 1996-97, 1997-98, 1998-99, 1999-2000), as the Rebels have an impressive 43-14 mark (.754 winning percentage) against out-of-conference teams. The following shows Ole Miss' non-conference record over the previous eight years:

92-93    5-5

THE LAST TIME THAT...

The Rebels were "on fire" from the field in their win over Southeastern Louisiana on Dec. 15, hitting 63 percent from the floor. The last time Ole Miss shot better than its 63 percent on Dec. 15 was a 66.7 percent shooting performance in a 96-70 victory over Sam Houston State on Dec. 30, 1989. Prior to the Dec. 15 game, 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.

REBELS GETTING THEIR SHOOTING TOUCH BACK

The Rebels started the 1999-2000 campaign on a subpar note in terms of shooting from the field. But, that has changed in their last five games versus Alabama State, Oklahoma, Virginia Commonwealth, Memphis and Southeastern Louisiana, as the Rebels have hit a combined 53.4 percent from the field. Ole Miss shot over 50 percent from the floor against Alabama State, Oklahoma and Southeastern Louisiana and nearly hit 50 percent from the field versus VCU and Memphis. The following chart shows the Rebels' improvement from the field in the last five games:

Total             127-238 .534

WILLIAMS ON A ROLL

Senior Lataryl Williams (Oxford, Miss.) has been-dare we say it-en fuego (on fire) from the field in the Rebels' last four games. The 6-foot-7 forward hit 77.3 percent from the field (17-of-22) and 58.3 percent from the three-point arc (7-of-12) in the last four outings versus Oklahoma, Virginia Commonwealth, Memphis and Southeastern Louisiana. He also netted double figures in three of the four games. For the season, Williams is hitting a team-high 56.7 percent from the floor.

WILLIAMS HAS A CAREER NIGHT

Senior Lataryl Williams had a career game in the Rebels' victory over Virginia Commonwealth on Dec. 7. The Oxford, Miss., native netted a career-high 22 points on 7-of-8 shooting from the field, including 4-of-5 from the three-point line, and 4-of-5 from the charity stripe. The four treys and four free throws made were career bests, while the seven field goals made tied his career high. The 6-foot-7 forward also had four rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in the win over the Rams. Earlier this season, Williams grabbed a career-high seven rebounds in Ole Miss' win over Oregon State on Nov. 27.

HICKS BREAKS THE 500-POINT MARK

Senior Marcus Hicks (Jackson, Tenn.) hit a milestone in the Rebels' game at Oklahoma on Dec. 4, netting the 500th point of his Ole Miss career. 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. After his 16-point performance versus Southeastern Louisiana on Dec. 15, the 6-foot-6 senior now has scored 551 points in 43 career games. Last year, Hicks scored 387 points, and after 10 games this season, Hicks has 161 points. He leads the Rebels in scoring this year with a 16.4 average.

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 63-7 record (.900 winning percentage) when it scores 70 points or more in a game. On the other hand, the Rebels are 7-23 when they net less than 70 points in a game. Last season, Ole Miss had an 18-3 record (.857 winning percentage) when it eclipsed the 70-point plateau. This year, the Rebels are 8-1 when scoring 70 points or more.

REBEL DOMINATION ON THE BOARDS

Despite being out-rebounded for the first time this year in the VCU game on Dec. 7, Ole Miss has been simply dominating its opponents on the boards in the early portion of the season. The Rebels are averaging 39.7 rebounds per contest, while the opposition has a rebounding average of 28.8 boards-a margin of 10.9 boards per game, which is second in the SEC. In the NCAA stats released on Dec. 14, the Rebels were sixth in the nation in rebounding margin. The following chart shows the Rebels' domination on the boards:

ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END

In the Rebels' victory over Virginia Commonwealth on Dec. 7, junior Rahim Lockhart (Mendenhall, Miss.) string of double-doubles came to an end. Lockhart had seven points and eight boards in the win over the Rams. Despite his double-double streak ending, Lockhart did record a career-best five steals versus VCU. Lockhart is still averaging a double-double of 14.3 points and 11.1 rebounds. He also leads the team in blocked shots (25) and is second in steals (20).

LOCKHART DOUBLES HIS PLEASURE-AN EIGHTH TIME

Junior Rahim Lockhart has certainly doubled his pleasure in the early portion of the Rebel schedule, as he has started the season with eight double-doubles in nine games. The following charts Lockhart's double-doubles this season:

Furman1514tied car-high blks (4)
Oregon St.1112

Memphis2213

The junior forward now has nine career double-doubles, as his first came last season against Tennessee (Feb. 17) with a 16-point, 12-rebound game.

LOCKHART GRABS 300TH REBOUND

Junior Rahim Lockhart recorded the 300th board of his Ole Miss career in the Rebels' loss to Oklahoma on Dec. 4. The 6-foot-8 forward entered the Oklahoma game with 296 career boards and grabbed 10 rebounds in the contest. He now has 331 boards for his career. This season, Lockhart leads the Rebels in rebounding with an 11.1 average. He leads the SEC and is fourth in the nation in rebounding.

HARRISON TIES CAREER HIGH IN ASSISTS

Sophomore Jason Harrison (Little Rock, Ark.) tied a career best with six assists in the Rebels' win over Southeastern Louisiana on Dec. 15. The 5-foot-5 guard dished out six assists and committed only one turnover in 23 minutes of action. Harrison also recorded six assists last season in a loss to Ohio State at the Puerto Rico Holiday Classic. He is second on the team with 35 assists this season.

HICKS, LOCKHART NAMED TO ALL-TOURNAMENT TEAM

Senior Marcus Hicks and junior Rahim Lockhart were named to the SoCon Holiday Hoops All-Tournament Team. Hicks averaged 14.7 points and 6.0 rebounds, while Lockhart 13.0 points and 13.0 boards. Lockhart also had 10 blocked shots and five steals. The Rebels won the tournament with a 57-53 championship-game victory over Wisconsin-Green Bay.

FLANIGAN TIES CAREER HIGH IN FIELD GOALS

Junior Jason Flanigan has played well in the Rebels' first nine games, and it shows in the 6-foot-1 guard's shooting from the field. Flanigan hit a career-high tying six field goals in Ole Miss' victory over Alabama State on Dec. 1. He scored 18 points versus the Hornets, which was two points shy of his career high of 20 points. Flanigan-who hit 36.1 percent from the floor in his first two years as a Rebel-is shooting 47.3 percent from the field this season.

TAKING CARE OF THE BALL

Ole Miss head coach Rod Barnes preaches "taking care of the basketball"-or in other words, no turnovers. Well, junior Jason Flanigan has been listening to Barnes' message. The 6-foot-1 guard has a team-high 45 assists compared to only 22 turnovers (better than 2-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio). With his third assist in the victory over Wisconsin-Green Bay on Nov. 28, Flanigan hit the 150-assist plateau for his career. A starter in all 10 games this season, Flanigan has 174 career assists.

FLANIGAN TIES CAREER HIGH IN REBOUNDING VERSUS OREGON STATE

Junior guard Jason Flanigan (Little Rock, Ark.) tied a career best with eight boards in the Rebels' win over Oregon State on Nov. 27. Flanigan also recorded eight boards in both wins over Arkansas in the 1998-99 campaign. Flanigan had a solid all-around game versus the Beavers, recording six points, eight rebounds, six assists and only one turnover in 33 minutes of action.

HICKS HAS CAREER SCORING NIGHT

Senior forward Marcus Hicks netted a career-high 26 points in Ole Miss' victory over McNeese State on Nov. 23. Hicks' previous career best was 24 points in a Rebel victory over Louisville on Dec. 5, 1998. He scored his career high on 11-of-17 shooting from the field and 4-of-6 from the charity stripe. The 11 field goals made tied a career best (also made 11 field goals versus Louisville). Hicks also recorded five boards, three assists, one block and one steal in the win over McNeese State.

LOCKHART EXPLODES FOR CAREER HIGH

In the Rebels' 74-59 victory over Jacksonville State on Nov. 19, junior forward Rahim Lockhart netted a career-best 29 points, breaking his previous high of 21 points against Alabama on Jan. 6, 1999. The 6-foot-8, 250-pound forward scored his 29 points on 11-of-17 shooting from the field and 7-of-10 from the charity stripe. The 11 field goals were also a career high for Lockhart. He also tied a career best with four blocked shots. In 32 minutes of action versus Jacksonville State, Lockhart committed no turnovers.

ANOTHER CAREER NIGHT FOR LOCKHART

For the second straight game, junior Rahim Lockhart set a career high-this time on the boards. Lockhart grabbed a career-best 16 boards in Ole Miss' win over McNeese State on Nov. 23. The 16 boards broke his previous career high of 12 rebounds set two times last season versus Tennessee (Feb. 17, 1999) and Mississippi State (Jan. 20, 1999).

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 on Nov. 3-4. Auburn was selected to win the SEC overall title and the Western Division championship. Arkansas was second, followed by Alabama, Mississippi State and LSU. In the East, Florida was picked to finish first, followed by Kentucky, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Georgia and South Carolina.
