 OXFORD, Miss. - The Ole Miss women's basketball team continued its preparation for the 2013-14 season this week and was treated to a talk by former Ole Miss head women's basketball coach and three-time WNBA Coach of the Year, Van Chancellor, on Thursday (Oct. 10).  

 Chancellor, who stopped by practice, talked to the team about believing in themselves, even when faced with adversity and coming to practice and working hard each and every day.

"It is great having Coach Chancellor around our program," said head coach Matt Insell. "He's a legend of the game and has so much to offer to our players and myself as a coach. We're happy to have him."

 The Rebels are 27 days away from their season-opener against Jacksonville State. Ole Miss is looking for its sixth consecutive season-opening victory when they take on the Gamecocks and its ninth consecutive home-opening victory.
