Rebels Fall On Road To Alabama
The Ole Miss Rebels volleyball team (7-6, 1-3 Southeastern Conference) received a season-high tying 14-kill performance from senior right side hitter Allegra Wells, and a match-high 15-dig performance from Ashley Veach, but it wasn't enough to top Alabama on the road. The Rebels made a number of rallies throughout the match, but couldn't grab the road victory, falling to Alabama 3-1 (22-25, 22-25, 25-21, 22-25).

OXFORD, Miss. - The Ole Miss volleyball team will celebrate its seniors Wednesday night as the Rebels return home for the final time this season.

Ole Miss (11-16, 5-13 Southeastern Conference) will face Alabama Wednesday evening, and will celebrate seniors Ashley Anderson, Whitney Craven, Courtney Cunningham, Amanda Philpot, Kiley Sherman, Ashley Veach and Allegra Wells following the match. Wednesday's match vs. Alabama will be televised live by Cox Sports TV, and will be shown on a tape-delayed basis by Comcast on Thursday at 6 a.m. CT. Ole Miss will then close out the season Friday evening at 7 p.m. CT against Texas A&M, the SEC Western Division Champions.

"It's exciting to be back home at the Gillom Center," Ole Miss head coach Joe Getzin said. "With Wednesday being senior night, we hope we can send this class off in a winning fashion."

Ole Miss lost a tough four-set match at Alabama earlier this season. The Rebels dropped the first two sets each by a 25-22 count before winning the third set 25-21. The two teams were tied 22-22 in the fourth set, but the Crimson Tide won the final three points to take the set 25-22, and the match 3-1. Wells had a season-high tying 14 kills for the Rebels, and Veach had a match-high 15 digs.

Ole Miss lost to Texas A&M 3-0 (25-21, 25-23, 25-16) in front of 1,981 fans at Reed Arena in College Station, Texas, in the Rebels' conference opener. Philpot had a double-double against the Aggies, recording 28 assists and 12 digs, while junior outside hitter Kara Morgan had a team-high 12 kills.

On Wednesday, 10 fans will have the opportunity to participate in "Turkey Bowling" at halftime. Following the match, Ole Miss will honor its seven seniors. The second annual Black Friday Extravaganza will take place Friday, as fans can enter to win exciting prizes.

Morgan leads Ole Miss in all matches with 3.03 kills per set. Philpot is passing out a team-high 9.27 assists per set to go with her 2.60 digs per set and 1.72 kills per set. Veach leads Ole Miss defensively with 4.33 digs per set.

Rebel middle blocker Nakeyta Clair was named SEC Freshman of the Week on Monday after her strong play Friday and Sunday at Mississippi State and Arkansas. Clair has played fantastic volleyball in conference matches, ranking second in the SEC in hitting percentage with a .369 clip, and third in blocks, with 1.14 blocks per set.

Alabama (17-13, 6-12 SEC) falls just ahead of the Rebels in the conference standings this week, while Texas A&M (22-5, 14-4 SEC) racked up its first division championship over the weekend with a 3-1 win over Missouri on Friday. Texas A&M is currently receiving votes in the latest AVCA Coaches' Top 25, and is No. 18 in the latest NCAA RPI.
