Ole Miss' timing perfect for postseason | The Commercial Appeal
Andy Kennedy and the Ole Miss Rebels ended SEC play by winning three straight and evening out their SEC record to 8-8. Of course, the grouchy fan in all of us is saying "that should at least be 10-6" but, hey, we're the #7 seed in the SEC tournament and will have a chance to win a few more SEC games before all's said and done. The Rebels bettered the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday 60-51 in what was Terrence Henry's last game in the Tad Pad.

Kentucky Goes Undefeated in Conference Play, SEC Tournament Seedings Set | Team Speed Kills
More on the SEC Tournament to come here at the Cup, but of note is the fact that Ole Miss has one of the easiest routes to an eventual beatdown at the hands of Big Blue. The Rebels open tournament play against Auburn on Thursday.

Pitching, Defense Give Rebels Series Win Over Redhawks | Ole Miss Sports dot com
More on this later today. After a poor performance by the Rebel pitching staff on Friday, Mike Bianco's squad put together an impressive showing of offense on Saturday and defense on Sunday to claim the weekend series from Miami of Ohio. The Rebels are now 10-2 on the year.

Rebels Open SEC Play 2-0 | Ole Miss Sports dot com
The Rebel netters dispatched Auburn and Alabama this past weekend. They play the #4 ranked Virginia Cavaliers this Wednesday in Oxford. This is a huge match. Be there.

Ladner resigns as Ole Miss women’s basketball coach |
Renee Ladner is a good Rebel who gave a lot to the Ole Miss Lady Rebels program. I hate it that it didn't work out for her, and admire her maturity and humility in stepping down after Friday's elimination from the SEC Women's Tournament. Over the past five years, she compiled a 70-82 overall and a 23-53 SEC record.

Anthony Standifer Commits (Signs?) With Ole Miss | Rivals ($)
With offers from Boise State, Notre Dame, Cincinnati, and Pittsburgh, Crete, Illinois native Anthony Standifer was a relatively highly recruited defensive back prospect before schools and their 'crooters learned that the high school standout was yet to take his standardized tests. Whoops. Well, Standifer's recently took his ACT and is believed to be in good position to qualify for NCAA eligibility, effectively re-opening his recruitment. He visited Ole Miss two weekends ago, and committed this past weekend.

Here are his high school highlights:

He's got impressive size and speed, and demonstrates better-than-decent hands, so I certainly count him as a welcomed signee. Ole Miss has signed few legitimate cornerback prospects out of high school over the past several years, so he'll likely be expected to contribute early and often. [HT: OleMissReb451]
