Lady Rebs Stay Alive in NCAA Tourney

(SID)HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Armintie Price and her Ole Miss teammates pressed TCU right out of the NCAA tournament.

Price scored 21 points and these running Rebels scored 39 points off 23 turnovers, beating TCU 88-74 Sunday in the first round of the Dayton Regional.

Ole Miss (22-10) won in the NCAAs for the first time since 1994, posting its highest-scoring game ever in the tournament.

After losing five of their last six games, including a 52-46 defeat to LSU in the SEC tournament, the Rebels came out with a full-court trap. They finished with 12 steals, and used their defense to pull away late in the first half.
