2010-2011 OLE MISS REBELS WOMENS BASKETBALL PREVIEW
The Ole Miss Rebel Black Bears are looking to make a good showing this season and hopefully get a shot at the WNIT. Last season they finished 17-15, just barely above .500 for the season. They could make a little noise in the SEC West this season, but they are just not at the level of competing with teams like Tennessee and Kentucky.
Coach Renee Ladner is looking to build on last season, when the Lady Rebel Black Bears pulled huge upsets at both Georgia and LSU. They actually swept LSU for the season, the same LSU that went on to win the SEC West last season. If she can bring her team together, they certainly could play the spoiler once again.
The biggest loss to Ole Miss is the loss of their leading scorer from last season Bianca Thomas. She led the Lady Rebel Black Bears with nearly 21 points per game. While she did have a problem with turnovers (87 last season), she was still the go to player for Ole Miss down the stretch. Now, the scoring responsibilities will fall to senior Kayla Melson, who was the second leading scorer on the team, and the only player of Ole Miss that was in their top five scorers last season.
Ole Miss was hurt by the loss of nearly all their starters from a year ago. This season will be more about rebuilding, which is why it will be so important for Ladner to have her young players ready to play as soon as possible. There is not much experience that can be relied upon on the team as a whole and Melson will be looked to as the leader in just about every aspect of the game.
The Lady Rebel Black Bears are in a rebuilding mode for this season, and that can actually make them dangerous in terms of spoiling other teams. If Ladner can get this team to play together, they may yet make the postseason, but it will be a close call either way.
