Ole Miss (13-8, 2-6 SEC) just couldn’t get anything going against Kentucky in an 89-57 road loss on Thursday night. Shelby Gibson (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) lead the way with 15 points – just one point shy of her career best.
Madinah Muhammad (Chicago, Ill.) added 13 points for her second straight game in double figures and her 11th this season, while Alissa Alston (New Haven, Conn.) added 11 points. Gibson and Erika Sisk (Oxford, Miss.) lead the way on the glass with four rebounds each.
Ole Miss put together a 7-0 run behind six points from Gibson midway through the third quarter to cut into the Kentucky lead. Gibson’s third quarter points put her in double figures for the seventh time this season and the second time in SEC play. Taylor Manuel (St. Louis, Mo.) was also a bright spot in the third frame, scoring six points. The Ole Miss bench scored 32 points and Rebel underclassmen accounted for 47 of Ole Miss’ 57 points.
Ole Miss couldn’t get anything to fall in the first half, shooting just 26.9 percent in the first half and scoring a season-low six points in the second quarter. The Wildcats took advantage of Ole Miss miscues and scored 22 points off 15 Ole Miss turnovers in the first half. Gibson and Muhammad led Ole Miss with seven and five points, respectively.
The Rebels scored the first basket of the game, but it was all Kentucky in the first quarter. The Wildcats rattled off eight straight points, forcing head coach Matt Insell to take a timeout. Out of the break, Gibson nailed her sixth triple of the season, but Kentucky capitalized on eight first-quarter turnovers, scoring 10 points and taking a 24-12 lead at the end of the opening period, an advantage they pushed to 28 points near the end of the second quarter.

Six members of the Ole Miss rifle team will travel to Palmyra, Pennsylvania to compete in the Palmyra Invitational against No. 15 Navy. The first meeting of the two teams this season will take place on Jan. 28, beginning at 11 a.m. CT. While the Rebels will only battle against Navy, the tournament will host around 275 competitors who shoot over three weekends.
Noting the Rebels Last Match
The Rebels may be coming off a heartbreaking loss to NC State (4658-4653), but the addition of several personal bests will be used to fuel their fire to future success.
Senior Alison Weisz currently leads the Rebels in 2017 with the highest aggregate score of 1173, a result of her 596 in air rifle (the second highest score in school history), and a 577 in the smallbore competition. Junior Jessica Haig follows just one point behind Weisz, holding a new personal best and the second highest aggregate score on the team of 1172, a result of her 578 smallbore score and 594 air rifle score. Sophomore Samantha Sandifer and junior Kristyn Trump did not contribute to the team’s overall performance last weekend, but posted new personal best aggregate scores.
