OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss got a team-high 14 kills from Kara Morgan, and won the first set over Arkansas, but it wasn’t enough as Arkansas rallied to win the next three sets and take the match 3-1 (22-25, 25-16, 25-21, 25-13) Sunday afternoon at the Gillom Sports Center.

Ole Miss (8-8, 2-5 Southeastern Conference) entered Sunday afternoon’s match as winners of 10 of its past 12 matches against Arkansas, but couldn’t overcome the SEC West’s second-place team.

“It’s about sustaining our level of play,” Ole Miss head coach Joe Getzin said. “Everyone can see we can do some really good things, we are just giving up bunches of runs of points that we have to eliminate.

“Once again, Kara Morgan had a great night. She’s putting up some stellar numbers for us. Defensively, we did some good things.”

Ole Miss took the first set by a 25-22 count, as senior setter Amanda Philpot had 13 assists, and Morgan had a team-high four kills. The Rebels led for the vast majority of the set, trailing by just one point twice during the set. For the set, Ole Miss hit at a .353 clip, committing just four attacking errors.

Arkansas (14-4, 5-2 SEC) responded in the next three sets, finishing the match with three players with double-figure kill totals, led by senior outside hitter Jasmine Norton, who finished with 18 kills and a dozen digs. Arkansas’ offense was paced by junior setter Raymariely Santos, who finished with 52 assists.

Philpot finished with a team-high 35 assists for Ole Miss, while senior outside hitter Whitney Craven had a team-high 12 digs. Sophomore defensive specialist Rachael McLamore and senior libero Ashley Veach each had 10 digs for the Rebels.

The Rebels will hit the road again next week. Ole Miss will play at Florida (13-2, 7-0 SEC) on Friday at 6 p.m. CT. Ole Miss will then travel north to Athens, Ga., to take on the Georgia Bulldogs (9-7, 3-4 SEC) on Sunday at 12:30 p.m. CT.
