Ross Is Boss

This has to be the biggest win in Carol Ross's history at Ole Miss. With back to back wins over top 15 teams, this team is gaining some attention.

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -Arminitie Price scored 18 points, including two clutch run-killing baskets late, and Mississippi won its second straight game against a ranked team with a 77-74 victory over No. 5 LSU on Thursday night.
The Rebels (14-4) snapped LSU's 10-game winning streak and are off to a 3-0 start in the Southeastern Conference after beating then-No. 11 Vanderbilt on Sunday and the Tigers (15-2, 1-1).
Ole Miss built an 18-point lead - the biggest deficit surrended by LSU this season - in a frenetic first half and held on as Sylvia Fowles and Quianna Chaney led a 20-5 run for the Tigers to start the second half.
The Rebels snapped an 11-game losing streak in the series against LSU and have now won five straight. It's their best start in conference since the 1991-92 season when they finished 11-0.
