NCAA Does Ole Miss No Favor for Tennis Championships

The Tennis teams at Ole Miss are somewhat miffed at the NCAA for not allowing the Rebels to host The NCAA First and Second rounds.

Both Men's and Women's teams qualified, with the Men being the overall Number-2 in the Nation having won both the SEC regular season and Tournament champiohships.

But, the NCAA decided to ship the Rebels to Baton Rouge next month where they could face the Home team, LSU, to get to the Regionals.

Ole Miss Athletic Director Pete Boone held a Conference Call with NCAA officials this morning..

The result, no Love for this year, but Boone received assurances the NCAA will be more flexible in placing deserving teams at, or near their home in the future.
