Starting Five
1. Ole Miss had its seven-game win streak snapped with an 87-80 loss to No. 9/9 Baylor on Dec. 18. The seven-game win streak was the longest win streak for the Rebels since opening the 2008-09 season with seven consecutive victories in 2008-09.

2. Tia Faleru picked up her eight double-double of the season and her 13th career double-double with 22 points and 10 rebounds. The double-double was her third consecutive and marks the first time a Rebel has had three straight double-doubles since Nikki Byrd in the 20011-12 season.

3. Valencia McFarland was one rebound shy of the third triple double in program history against Baylor with 17 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds. McFarland also flirted with a triple double against Washington State with nine points, seven rebounds and seven assists. Her 12 assists against Baylor is a new career high.

Ole Miss has had a player reach the 20-point milestone in six of its seven games and Faleru has reached the mark three times this season. Valencia McFarland leads Ole Miss active players with 17 career games of 20 or more points.

5. Valencia McFarland played in her 100th career game against Baylor and made her 90th consecutive start against the Bears. McFarland has started in 99 of the 100 games she has played in during her collegiate career.
