Midweek baseball games are generally unimportant, but at 24-21 on the season Ole Miss really can’t afford any more losses. That’s why a Kids’ Day victory over Arkansas Little Rock was so important on Tuesday. The Rebels had to fight every step of the way in the high-scoring affair, but they ultimately came out on top making a 30-win season more possible.
Ole Miss travels to Mizzou this weekend for a pivotal series between two teams trying to make the SEC Tournament cut. The Rebels and Tigers have matching 5-16 records, so the winner will get a huge leg up.

Ole Miss landed a commitment from former Liberty cornerback Daijahn Anthony out of the NCAA Transfer Portal on Tuesday. Anthony described his visit to Oxford perfectly:
“It was really good, good food, good vibes,”

“… the job she and her staff have done, it’s been incredible,” Ole Miss athletic director Keith Carter said. “When they got here, there really weren’t even enough players on the roster to field a team. They were trying and scrounging around to just find enough to have 12, 13, 14 players on the roster. Year two they go 0-16 (in the SEC) and then from there it’s just kind of been a sky rocket up. That’s a lot of credit to her and the staff and the student-athletes.”
