Rebels in the rankings

Marshall Henderson’s heroics and the Rebels’ win streak haven’t gone noticed only by the SEC.

Coming off wins over Vanderbilt and Arkansas last week, Ole Miss is back in the polls for the first time in three years. AP lists Ole Miss at No. 23, the USA Today coaches poll at No. 24. Last week Ole Miss was receiving votes in both polls.

The ranking is the Rebels’ first since Feb. 2, 2010 when they fell out of the polls after an 85-75 loss at Kentucky.

That Ole Miss team finished 24-11, 9-7 in the SEC, and reached the NIT semifinals in New York.

  • Ole Miss not the only red-hot team in the SEC at
    present, so are the No 8 Ranked Gators: Billy Donovan has been here
    before, coaching a red-hot team seemingly destined for big things in
    March. So
    many time the Red hot teams cool off and shoot themselves in the foot and lose their way. Gators been to final four before, but Ole miss no further than sweet sixteen. We shall see which one goes further this season.
