Ole Miss won four SEC series in the regular season. One of them was Arkansas on the opening weekend.
The Rebels won two games including the clincher on Sunday, 6-4 in 13 innings. That made an impression on Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn.
Here Van Horn invokes Omaha in his assessment of Ole Miss going into Tuesday’s second round of the SEC tournament:
“They’re awfully good. They’re an older team and they’ve played pretty well down the stretch. I watched them play today (against Kentucky). They were solid, really only made one mistake. It didn’t come back to hurt them. They swung the bats extremely well today as well. Double-digit hits. They’ve got a good mix. Offensively they’ve got some speed up top, and they’ve got some power in the middle. They’ve got a very good lineup. Excellent starting pitching, two or three experienced guys out of the pen. It’s a typical, older, SEC team that’s good enough to get the College World Series.”
