McFarland Named Preseason All-SEC
Junior point guard Valencia McFarland has been named to the Preseason Second Team All-SEC as voted on by the league's 14 coaches, the SEC announced Nov. 6.

McFarland, a native of Edwards, Miss., was a Second Team All-SEC selection as a sophomore. Last season, she led the team, and was in the top of the SEC in several statistical categories, including points, assist, steals and minutes played.  McFarland enters the 2102-13 season poised to break into the 1,000 career-point club as she has scored 776 career points during her first two seasons with the Rebels.


Scouting SELA
Ole Miss leads the all-time series with SELA, 14-0. The two teams last met during the 2011-12 season with the Rebels posting a 72-52 win over the Lions. SELA is led by seniors Brandi Simmons and Cierra Morris. The Lions ended last season 12-18 overall and 7-9 in the Soutland Conference (East). SELA returns two starters and five letterwinners, including Aja Gibson who led the team in scoring last season (11.3 ppg). 

In the last meeting, Kenyotta Jenkins scored 12 points for Ole Miss while Danielle McCray added seven.  The Rebels outrebounded the Lions 49-45 in the game with Jenkins grabbing eight rebounds.  In the all-time series, Ole Miss has scored at least 80 points on seven occasions, including a series-high 110  in a win in 1979.

A Loss Friday Would ...
