    Rebel Volleyball 11/7/2019
    Rebels Host No. 12 Florida, South Carolina This Weekend
    Friday is Hometown Heroes Night, with a t-shirt giveaway

    RALLY POINTS
    • Senior Nayo Warnell delivered an outstanding outing Sunday in Tuscaloosa. The veteran tallied a career-best 16 kills, hitting at a .519 percentage, while adding five blocks. After leading the conference for part of the season in the category, she currently ranks 3rd in the SEC in hitting percentage and 20th in the country.
    • Another veteran with a strong performance Sunday was senior Leah Mulkey, who registered a season-high 14 kills. In the second set alone, Mulkey was on fire, posting seven kills on an .825 efficiency.
    • Junior Lauren Bars fell just five assists shy of her career-best Sunday, dishing out 52 assists. Bars leads the league with 13 double-doubles, recording her third straight Sunday after registering 10 digs.
    • In addition to Warnell and Mulkey, senior Emily Stroup and sophomore Aubrey Sultemeier also collected double-digit kills in Tuscaloosa. Stroup finished with her 11th double-double of the year with 13 kills and 12 digs, while Sultemeier also turned in a season-best with 12 kills.
    • The Rebels rank in the top five in the league in three categories, including continuing to lead the SEC with 1,388 digs at 15.42 per set. Ole Miss is also third in blocks per set (2.38) and fourth in opponent hitting percentage (.195).
    • With seven matches remaining in the regular season, the Rebels' schedule doesn't get any easier. Ole Miss will face three Top 25 opponents and another two that are receiving votes. Of those seven opponents remaining, six boast a RPI ranking in the Top 50 and four teams were 2018 NCAA Tournament participants. The Rebels sit just outside of that Top 50 threshold, currently at No. 53.

    Ole Miss Game Recap: Volleyball | 11/8/2019
    Rebels Take No. 12 Florida to Five Friday
    Ole Miss takes Florida to five sets for the first time since 2009
    OXFORD, Miss. – Despite hitting at an above .400 hitting percentage for the opening stanza Friday night, Ole Miss Volleyball (14-9, 6-6 SEC) dropped its third-straight heartbreaker, falling to No. 12 Florida (19-3, 10-1 SEC) by scores of 25-23, 15-25, 25-21, 14-25, 8-15.

    The Rebels opened at a .406 clip, their highest in an opening set of league play this season. It was the first time Ole Miss has taken Florida to five sets since 2009, a loss in Oxford to the then-No. 5 Gators.

    Leading the way for the Rebs was senior Emily Stroup, who registered her third straight double-double with 14 kills and 15 digs. It was her 12th of the year. Junior setter Lauren Bars also recorded a double-double, dishing out 37 assists with 13 digs, for her league-leading 14th of the season.

    Freshman Anna Bair tallied 12 kills, with the senior duo of Leah Mulkey and Nayo Warnell posting nine and seven, respectively. Warnell tallied a team-high seven blocks, while fellow veteran Nicole Purcell collected a team-best 23 digs. Sophomore Avery Bugg added 14, just three shy of her career-best.
    Ole Miss held Florida to a .208 hitting percentage, their fourth-lowest efficiency on the season.
    The Rebels and the Gators endured 11 ties in the opening stanza, neither squad leading by more than three points throughout the frame. Ole Miss used back-to-back Stroup slams and a Florida miscue to tally three points in a row to tie and take control of the set at 9-7.
