Ole Miss Women’s Basketball is Going Dancing for First Time Since 2007

OXFORD, Miss. — The Rebels (23-8, 10-5 SEC) are going dancing in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2007, as head coach Yolett McPhee-McCuin and her team have earned the No. 7 seed and will be headed to Waco, Texas.

Ole Miss’ first-round opponent in what is the Wichita Regional will be No. 10-seed South Dakota (27-5) on Friday.

Ole Miss was winless in conference two years ago, but now finds themselves in the midst of a fantastic program turnaround, led by Coach Yo and Shakira Austin, a projected top-five WNBA Draft selection.

The Rebels notched three Top-25 wins this season and finished No. 4 in the conference. South Dakota won the Summit League Tournament for an automatic berth.

Waco-bound to face South Dakota

Coach Yo is pleased the Rebels are headed to Waco. “I’m pumped because our fans can get there,” she said. “We have people who can carpool and get there. We have a lot of fans in Dallas…we are excited about it.”

While she believes her team could have been a higher seed, Coach Yo is happy with their opening round.

 

Ole Miss will be making the school’s 18th appearance in the NCAA tournament in school history, the first under Coach Yo — who previously led Jacksonville to the tournament in 2016.

We’ll bring you game info and ticket details as they become available.

Hotty Toddy!
