Ole Miss Athletics Week in Review

April 21-27, 2015

Baseball

- During the five-game homestand, Ole Miss went 3-2 with a midweek win over Central Arkansas as well as claiming a weekend series over Alabama. 

- The Rebels recorded 68 hits throughout the week, improving their season batting average by 15 points. Three Rebels hit over .500 for the week, led by junior Connor Cloyd, who recorded five multi-hit games for a .565 week (13-for-23). 

- Sophomore Colby Bortles and senior Austin Knight smacked hits in half of their at bats; Bortles was 9-for-18 this week, while Knight went 8-for-16 that included the first two home runs of his career. 

- Scoring 14 runs in the first two innings, Ole Miss busted out the bats in a convincing 18-4 victory over Central Arkansas. The 18 runs were a season high for Ole Miss and every Rebel in the starting lineup recorded at least one hit, one run and one RBI, a feat accomplished for the first time in Ole Miss history. 

- In a loss to Memphis, sophomore Colby Bortles had another big night at the dish, going 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and one run. Bortles' three hits tied his career high total for a single game. 

- The Rebels got back on the winning track by sweeping Alabama in a doubleheader on Saturday, outscoring the Crimson Tide a combined 14-2. 

- In game one, the Rebels turned in a complete performance with 17 hits, eight innings from starting pitcher Christian Trent, and multiple outstanding defensive plays in a 10-2 victory. 

- Junior right fielder Cameron Dishon went 4-for-5, setting a career high for hits, and Bortles tied a career high with five RBI. In addition to a career high for hits, Dishon also set a career high with three stolen bases, giving him 15 for the season, to go along with two runs scored. 

- Bortles went 3-for-4 with a double and a home run, a three-run shot in the fourth for his seventh of the season. 

- Trent worked a season-long 8.0 innings, giving up two runs -- one earned -- and scattering six hits with a walk and five strikeouts. 

- In front of 10,119 fans, the largest crowd of the season and sixth-most in Swayze Field history, sophomore Brady Bramlett and senior Scott Weathersby out-dueled Alabama, 4-0, to complete doubleheader sweep. 

- Bramlett went a career-long 7.1 innings, shutting out Alabama and limiting the Crimson Tide to just four hits. Bramlett also struck out nine batters with no walks, and he was one strikeout shy of recording his third double-digit strikeout game of the season. 

- Weathersby worked a perfect 1.2 innings of relief with two strikeouts to pick up the save. As a team, the Rebels struck out 11 batters compared to zero walks. 

- Cloyd (2-for-3) and Knight (2-for-4) each tallied a multi-hit game. Cloyd drove in what proved to be the game-winning run in the contest, while Knight and senior first baseman Sikes Orvis provided some insurance with a pair of home runs in the eighth.

- After 183 career at-bats without a home run, Knight belted two homers in back-to-back at-bats as the senior left the yard in his first plate appearance of Sunday's series finale.

Ole Miss Athletics Week in Review

April 7-13, 2015

Baseball

- Ole Miss finished the week with a 2-2 mark to remain a .500 overall record for the season (18-18) as well as 7-8 in SEC play. After dropping a midweek game to Southern Miss in Pearl, Miss., the Rebels bounced back to claim a SEC road series over No. 1 Vanderbilt. Ole Miss dropped the first game before taking the final two games from the top-ranked Commodores. 

- Against Southern Miss, Connor Cloyd batted in the leadoff spot for the first time in his Ole Miss career, going 3-for-5 with two runs for a new career high in hits. Sophomore Colby Bortles added a pair of hits and two RBI, while senior Sikes Orvis drove in his team-leading 28th and 29th runs of the season with his eighth double of the 2015 campaign. 

- Bortles continued his hot hitting into the weekend. With Ole Miss trailing by four in the top of the ninth on Friday night, Bortles tied the game by belting the second grand slam of his career. The third baseman was also the last Rebel to hit a grand slam before tonight, going deep against Arkansas State, May 13, 2014. 

- After Ole Miss tied the game in the ninth, a two-out double by Henri Lartigue in the top of the 16th brought in the game-winning run. 

- The bullpen trio of Jacob Waguespack, Wyatt Short and Scott Weathersby combined to pitch 11 shutout innings. Add in starter Brady Bramlett, and the Ole Miss pitching staff kept the No. 1 team in the country off the scoreboard for 14 of the 16 innings. 

- Waguespack pitched three scoreless innings before Short added a pair of shutdown innings. 

- Weathersby was named SEC Co-Pitcher of the Week, the conference office announced Monday. Weathersby finished the game by lasting a career-long six innings and striking out a career-high 10 hitters. Weathersby retired 18 of the 21 batters he faced, including getting out of a bases-loaded jam with nobody out in the bottom of the 11th. 

- The 16-inning game was the second extra-inning game of the year for Ole Miss. The Rebels defeated then-No. 1 LSU in 14 innings earlier this season, rallying to tie the game in the ninth inning of that contest as well. The two games mark the first time in Ole Miss history that the Diamond Rebels have played two 14-plus inning games in one season. The 16-inning game also was the third-longest in program history. 

- One night after rallying behind four runs in the ninth and coming back to win a 16-inning thriller, the Ole Miss baseball team maintained the momentum by taking down No. 1 Vanderbilt for the second-straight game, 5-4, to claim a big SEC series on the road. With a victory over the Commodores, the Rebels improved to an impressive 5-4 against No. 1 teams in 2015. 

- Sophomore Errol Robinson provided the game-winning hit, a 2-RBI bases-loaded single in the top of the seventh, and the Ole Miss bullpen kept the Commodores off the board for the second-consecutive contest. 

- Senior Sam Smith came out of the bullpen to pitch two scoreless innings of relief, and Waguespack closed out the ninth to earn his first career save. For the entire series, the Rebels' bullpen did not allow a run to score in 15.2 innings of work. 

- Nine different Rebels recorded base hits throughout the afternoon as the team tallied 10 of them. Senior Austin Knight went 2-for-3 and added a walk to reach base three times. Holt Perdzock had a RBI double in his only plate appearance, and Cameron Dishon knocked in a run as well. 

- In his fourth career start, facing a No. 1 team for the second time in his career, freshman Will Stokes put together a career outing. The right-hander went a career-long six innings, surrendering four runs on seven hits to earn the first victory of his young Ole Miss career. 

- Ole Miss has won two-of-three series against No. 1 teams this season (Florida, Vanderbilt).

Observations from the Best Seat in the House -- March 15

The men's basketball received a bid to the NCAA Tournament for the second time in three years. The women's basketball team learns its fate Monday. The football team was off for spring break, while the spring sports are in the middle of league action. Here are some thoughts and opinions on the week that was:

- As you know by now, Ole Miss was selected as a No. 11 seed and will play BYU, and should they win, they would play No. 6 seed Xavier in the Round of 64 on Thursday in Jacksonville, Florida. The other pairing in the four-team pod is No. 3 seed Baylor and No. 14 seed Georgia State.

- But in case you missed it, here's a Vine of the team's reaction after seeing they made the tournament (via TJ Werre)

- As Michael Thompson noted on Twitter, with an NCAA Tournament appearance in men's basketball, Ole Miss is the only school to have been to the College World Series, a New Year's Six bowl game and the NCAA Tournament in the last 10 months.

- Head coach Andy Kennedy, who had already accounted for half of the program's 20-win season, now accounts for one-fourth of the program's NCAA Tournament appearances.

- Ole Miss was the fourth-to-last team in the Field of 68, but despite their safeness relative to other teams closer to the cut line, they needed some help, and they got it throughout the conference tournament season, whether it was fellow bubble teams that lost or just one true "bid thief" that emerged.

"I have a dog, and when you clap your hands or raise your voice, the dog crazy, so needless to say, the dog was going crazy a lot on Saturday," said Kennedy of scoreboard-watching this past week.

- Historically, No. 11 seeds and First Four teams have made runs in the NCAA Tournament, none more memorable than Shaka Smart's 2011 Virginia Commonwealth team that reached the Final Four. Ole Miss has showed its capable of such a run, whether it was three top 50 RPI wins away from home, winning six games in a row or playing No. 1 overall seed and undefeated Kentucky to the wire, also away from home. I wrote more about the Rebels' capabilities and their opportunity here.

- Ole Miss is one of five SEC teams in the NCAA Tournament, the fifth-most among all conferences and the most for the conference since 2011, when the league also had five teams in the field. That relative strength of the SEC likely played an important role in getting the Rebels into the field.

- From the truth is stranger than fiction category: As a player, assistant coach and head coach for Valparaiso, Bryce Drew has participated in five NCAA Tournaments. Ole Miss has participated in four of those same five NCAA Tournaments, including the 2013 and 2015 editions.

- On first look, here are a couple of things that stand out about BYU. The Cougars rank second in the nation in scoring, averaging 83.6 points per game, the best among teams in the NCAA Tournament. BYU senior guard Tyler Haws, the school's all-time leading scorer, besting Jimmer Fredette, averages 21.9 points per game, third in the nation and second among players in the NCAA Tournament.

- Also noteworthy: In BYU's first and only other appearance in the First Four in Dayton, the Cougars completed the biggest comeback in NCAA Tournament history, defeating Iona 78-72 after trailing by 25 points in the game.

- Facing a pair of tough road series this past week, the baseball team split its midweek series at No. 8 Louisville and won one of three at No. 1 LSU over the weekend. The Rebels showed flashes of what they could be this season in the 5-3 win over the Tigers in 14 innings on Saturday night, in the SEC Network primetime slot.

- #FearTheStache was trending on Twitter at one point Saturday, as Sikes Orvis went 3-for-6 with two doubles and two RBI, the game-tying run in the ninth and the go-ahead in the 14th, later scoring an insurance run in the same half-inning. He also snagged a line drive for a game-saving double play in the 10th.

- It doesn't get any easier for Ole Miss, as the Rebels host No. 3 Florida in their first SEC home series of the season after a midweek home contest against Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Wednesday. The first half of the SEC slate also includes a road series at No. 16 Arkansas and a home series against No. 5 Vanderbilt.

- The women's basketball team is expected to earn a berth in the Women's National Invitational, and if selected to host, the Rebels would play a first-round game on Thursday night. The announcement of the entire WNIT will come late on Monday night. It would be their first postseason appearance since 2009-10.

- Three Ole Miss athletes earned All-American honors at the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships, highlighted by Jalen Miller's bronze-medal finish in the men's 60 meters. Phillip Young (men's triple jump) and Brooke Feldmeier (women's 800 meters) joined Miller in earning All-American honors.

- The men's tennis team split its matches this past week, dropping a 4-1 decision to No. 2 Baylor and picking up a 4-1 win over Arkansas, improving to 2-1 in SEC play. Looking ahead, the Rebels play five matches in 10 days, including a home match against No. 18 Florida and a road match at No. 9 Texas A&M.

- The women's tennis team also split its matches this past week, moving to 3-3 in SEC with a loss to Alabama and a win over Auburn. Senior Julia Jones also moved one step closer to history, picking up her 95th career win.

Summers finished with 22 points, one shy of his season high, all in the second half, to go along with a game-high seven assists. He went 4-of-10 from the field and 2-of-4 from 3-point range, but he went 12-of-15 from the free-throw line. 

- Ole Miss routed the Tigers on the road Saturday behind 23 points from junior guard Stefan Moody. Summers added seven assists in the win and junior guard Martavious Newby pulled down nine boards. 

- Ole Miss leads the nation hitting 80.1 percent of its free throw attempts, which would also lead the NBA. The Rebels have hit 212 of their last 254 from the line (.835). If the season ended today, Ole Miss would post the second-best FT percentage by a team in SEC history trailing only Vanderbilt in 1974 (.802). The Rebels' 82.9 percent from the line in conference play would break the Commodores' 1974 record (.814). 

- Junior G Stefan Moody, who leads the SEC and ranks sixth in the nation shooting 91.7 percent (88-of-96). Moody has made 31-straight FTs dating back to the Arkansas game, which is six free throws shy of the SEC record of 37 for consecutive free throws made in conference play held former Rebel David Rhodes. 

- Head coach Andy Kennedy tied former Mississippi State head coach Rick Stansbury with the fourth-most wins by an SEC coach in his first nine years in the league at one school with 185.

Track & Field

- Led by superb sprinting from sophomore Jalen Miller, Ole Miss claimed three event victories, accomplished two school records and broke a significant meet record at the world-class Armory Track Invitational this weekend.

- Miller showed off his consistency and prowess in the 60 meters with more electrifying times this weekend. On Friday, he broke former Tennessee star Justin Gatlin's 2002 meet record of 6.56 when Miller clocked 6.55 in the semifinals to tie Mike Granger's all-time school record. He ranks third in the NCAA and sixth in the world with that personal-best time. Miller won Saturday's final in 6.59, despite a slow start and a slip out of the blocks. It was his sixth race of 6.60 or better this season. Only five other runners in the NCAA have run 6.60 or better at all.

- Senior Phillip Young leapt an indoor personal-best 52-8 not once but twice en route to the triple jump victory. It moves him up to No. 6 in the NCAA this year and fourth in school history.

- Sophomore Adam Aguirre tied for the high jump title with a clearance of 6-11.5.

- MJ Erb clocked a personal-best 8:07.54 in the 3,000 meters to break former All-American Barnabas Kirui's school record of 8:08.17 set in 2010. Erb placed fourth in the race, while eighth-place finisher Daniel Bulmer ran an indoor PR of 8:11.22 that ranks him third in the school record books.

- For the women, freshman Shannon Ray made the finals of the 60 meters after her semifinal time of 7.47 on Friday moved her up to ninth in school history. Fellow freshman Brooke Feldmeier had another strong run in the 800 with a time of 2:07.13 to finish third. Junior newcomer Britt Ummels did not lower her school mile record from last week, but had another solid performance with a time of 4:50.63 to place fifth.

- A portion of the Ole Miss team also traveled to Jonesboro, Arkansas, for the A-State Invitational. Jhorden Hunter claimed the 55-meter dash in 6.92 and Saga Barzowski won the mile in 5:07.71. Hunter's time of 6.92 ranks her third all-time in the school record books.

Women's Basketball

- The Rebels are 14-8, 4-5 SEC after dropping their last four games. The four-game losing streak is the longest of the season for Ole Miss. Ole Miss is looking for its first winning record since 2009-10 when they went 17-15 and reached the WNIT.

- Tia Faleru is making some noise in the record books. With her 20 rebounds on the week, she is now just 42 rebounds shy of 800 career rebounds. When she reached the milestone she will become one of just seven players in program history to record 1,000 points and 800 rebounds and will be the first to reach the milestone since Armintie Price who played at Ole Miss from 2003-07. Additionally, Faleru has scored in a 98 consecutive games dating back to her freshman season. 

- Ole Miss, which played on Super Bowl Sunday for the 17th consecutive season and the 20th time overall, moved to 6-14 after dropping a 77-59 game to No. 1 South Carolina on Sunday. Ole Miss last won a game on Super Bowl Sunday on 2009-10 in triple overtime fashion in Baton Rouge with a 102-101 win over LSU.

- The Rebels struggled on offense against LSU, scoring just 41 points against the Tigers. Ole Miss' 41 points was a season-low and the fewest points scored in the Matt Insell era. Ole Miss is 5-8 when failing to reach 70 points, a mark they haven't reached in the last five games. 

Women's Tennis

 - No. 24 Ole Miss suffered its first loss of the season, dropping a 6-1 decision at No. 16 Oklahoma State Saturday.

- A bright spot in the loss, senior Julia Jones knocked off the No. 10 ranked player in straight sets to improve to 15-3 overall, 5-0 at No. 1 singles.  Jones earned her ninth ranked win of the year and now has 88 career victories.

    How can you have five straight top 25 recruiting classes and look as bad as Ole Miss has this year. Easy lack of coaching fundamentals. Look at Mason at Vandy, nothing but 2 and 3 star recruits out of high school and he developers players that want to win. Hugh freeze has 3, 4 & 5 recruits and he expects them to win because of what they were in High School. Mr. Freeze you have not been teaching the fundamentals of football or winning in life. Mr. Freeze you have quit on your players because you have some false expectations of what they are instead of what you can develop in them. Either do your job or quit. Oh yea, please quit running your smoke and mirrors offense, everyone has figured it out. Run a physical offense that can open up holes for your running backs and then your pass attack want require 12 are 14 four and five star receivers. Mr. Freeze you have problems and you need to know that you are not smarter than the rest of the coaches in the SEC.

    Not every pass can be caught. Too low, too short whatever. Not every Kelly pass is perfect. Records were broken by receivers also. But they sre not going to catch every ball thrown. The loss to Auburn was not one players fault. You win or lose as a team.
