Lady Rebels Shock the World

This win for the Lady Rebels has gotten them alot of publicity today from the lead on Sportscenter to Shepard Smith dedicating about two minutes on his show to it today. If you did not see Studio B this afternoon try and find the link. Shepard really gave us some publicity today. I would like to point out a couple of stats from last night's game:

Price had three steals and needs just four more for 400 in her career. That would make her just the second player in women's NCAA history with 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds, 400 assists and 400 steals. The other is former USC star Cheryl Miller.

The Lady Rebs shot 88.9% from the free throw line. That is amazing

(SID) HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -Maryland fell into Ole Miss' trap and the defending NCAA champion never got out.

Ole Miss (23-10) used its stifling defense to steal the ball 15 times and force 29 Maryland turnovers and the Rebels upset the No. 2 seed Terrapins 89-78 in the Dayton Regional on Tuesday night.

Armintie Price scored 29 points to lead the Rebels, the same Ole Miss team that was blown out by the Terps 110-79 at a tournament in the Bahamas in November. This time there was a lot more on the line.

Ole Miss will play No. 3 Oklahoma in the Dayton Regional semifinals. The third-seeded Sooners beat Marquette 78-47 on Monday.
