Trailing by 12 points in the first half, the Ole Miss women’s basketball team (14-8, 3-6 SEC) used a 25-point third quarter to snap its four-game losing streak with a 69-62 win over Georgia on Sunday afternoon.
Madinah Muhammad (Chicago, Ill.) led the offense with 19 points and was joined in double figures by three of her teammates Shandricka Sessom (Byhalia, Miss.) had 16 points, while Alissa Alston (New Haven, Conn.) and Shelby Gibson (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) added 12 points off the bench. Sessom led the way with a game-high eight rebounds.
In the fourth quarter, Ole Miss extended its 10-point lead to 12 points with a jumper from Sessom but Georgia got it to single digits and as close as seven points but Muhammad hit a jumper followed by a bucket inside from Gibson that kept the lead with the home team at the fourth quarter media timeout.
With 1:30 left, Georgia capitalized on the free throw line and cut the lead to four points but Alissa Alston (New Haven, Conn.) hit a runner in the lane and Ole Miss clamped down on the other end, forcing a jump ball in which they retained possession to take a 61-55 lead with under a minute remaining. The Rebels were clutch from the free throw line down the stretch going 8-of-8 to seal the victory.
Neither team was particularly sharp to open the third quarter but Taylor Manuel (St Louis, Mo.) hit a basket underneath while Muhammad hit a trey as Ole Miss cut the lead to just three points, 34-31 at the 6:53 mark. The Rebels clamped down on the defensive side of things and with a triple from Alston took their first lead of the game at the 6:00 mark.
After scoring just two points against Kentucky, Shandricka Sessom (Byhalia, Miss.) started to warm up in the third quarter with a pair of triples and as she reached double figures for the 17th game. Three point shooting was the name of the third quarter as Ole Miss drilled five third-quarter triples and shot 62.5 percent from long range in the quarter while running its lead to 37-39 with 2:18 left en route to a 51-41 lead at the end of three quarters.
Gibson again made an early impact against the Bulldogs with 10 first half points –for her second straight game in double figures. With Georgia leading 28-16, Madinah Muhammad (Chicago, Ill.) hit a trey and sparked an 8-2 run late in the half cutting the Bulldog lead to 34-26 at the end of two quarters.
Georgia jumped out to a 9-2 lead early before an old-fashioned three-point play from Shelby Gibson (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) gave the Rebels some life but Georgia responded with a 6-0 run behind triples from Mackenzie Engram and Pachis Roberts to take a 15-5 lead at the 4:01 mark forcing Ole Miss to call an early timeout. Out of the timeout, Gibson nailed a bucket underneath and after being fouled on the play gave Ole Miss momentum which lead to a 7-0 run cutting the lead to 15-12 with 1:17 left as Georgia took a 17-12 lead at the end of the quarter.

Ole Miss Men’s Tennis Takes Down No. 15 Texas A&M

For the second straight day, the Ole Miss men’s tennis team went the distance, but this time they won the final two matches for a 4-3 win at Texas A&M Sunday, in the consolation match of the ITA Kick-Off.
Junior Grey Hamilton provided the heroics, rallying in the third set against A&M’s James Martell to win his match and clinch the team victory for the Rebels. The first two sets would be decided in tiebreakers, with Hamilton winning the first one, 7-6(4) and Martell the second, 7-6(4). Martell used that momentum to gain a 3-0 advantage early in the third, before Hamilton rattled off four straight games to take a 4-3 lead. Martell broke back for 4-4, but then Hamilton broke again and held serve for the win.
The Rebels took the early lead in the match, winning a close doubles point. Fabian Fallert and Hamilton, ranked No. 13 nationally, defeated No. 7 Arthur Rinderknech and Max Lunkin 6-4 and then Zvonimir Babic and Ricardo Jorge finished off a 6-4 win at No. 3 to clinch the point.
A&M responded in singles with two straight-set victories on courts five and two to take a 2-1 lead.
Jorge won for the second straight day, topping Aggie Alexsandre Bakshi 6-4, 6-3 at No. 3 to square it at 2.
For the second day in a row, Fallert went to three sets, but A&M’s Jordi Arconada came out on top in the third 6-3 to give the Aggies the lead just as the remaining two matches were in third sets.
In a battle between two top 20 ranked players, 14th-ranked Gustav Hansson set up Hamilton for the clinch with a dominating performance in the third set against Rinderknech, who is ranked No. 16. Hansson won a tiebreaker in the first set 7-6(3), but Rinderknech forced a third set, taking the second set 6-2. Hansson broke early and cruised 6-1 to even the overall match.

The highest smallbore score of the match marked a 578 and was shot by Daniel Jonas and Alex Muzzioli from Navy.
Gardner too led the Rebels in air rifle as she posted a 591 for the third time this season, just one point away from her career high. This score tied with Navy’s Kestrel Kuhne for the highest air rifle scores of the match. Gardner’s total aggregate of 1163 was the highest of the match followed behind two of Navy’s underclassmen, Josh Watson and Kuhne who both posted a 1162 aggregate.
