The student athletes attended morning classes Tuesday, before hitting the floor for practice.  After pratice, the team showered and dressed for its 3 1/2 hour bus trip to Little Rock.  Managers and staff loaded the bus in a steady rain, and the team left the beautiful Ole Miss campus at 2:30 p.m., Oxford time, on their quest to make a run at the SEC tourney.

The drive was rainy and foggy all the way to Arkansas, but the team, coaches and staff arrived safely. After checking into their Wyndham Riverfront Hotel, the team went to Stickyz Rock ‘N’ Roll Chicken Shack and piano bar for dinner.

The evening ended with the players heading to their respective rooms, while the coaches buckled down to watch film and finalize their strategies.
