OXFORD, Miss. – Less than one month until the first game of the season and the opening of the Adrian Wiggins era, the Ole Miss women’s basketball team has been working hard on the court to prepare for its season-opening game against SELA on Nov. 9.

In addition to schoolwork and practice, the team has also been busy doing a number of events in the community, including community service. Below is information on what the team has been up to and what is on tap:

“Move Mississippi”
Gracie Frizzell, Amber Singletary and Courtney Marbra took part in the “Move Mississippi” initiative today as part as the athletics department’s initiative to help promote a healthy and active lifestyle to children in the Oxford area. The women’s players were joined by members of the men’s team and head coaches Adrian Wiggins and Andy Kennedy at the Boys & Girls Club this afternoon in Oxford to teach children about healthy lifestyles.
