The Ole Miss women’s basketball team capped a historic season by earning its first top-25 ranking since 2007.

The Lady Rebels came in at No 22 in the final USA Today Coaches Poll after going unranked all season. The team earned the recognition after working their way to a Sweet 16 appearance in the NCAA Tournament, defeating No. 9 seed Gonzaga and No. 1 seed Stanford along the way.

Ole Miss (25-9, 11-5 SEC), led by head coach Yolett McPhee-McCuin, made back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances for the first time since their 11-year postseason run from 1982-1992. More impressively, the team accomplished this feat after going winless in conference play just three seasons ago.

An additional honor for the Lady Rebels is Ole Miss guard Angel Baker being recognized by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association as an Honorable Mention All-American. The first-team All-SEC player and Gillom Trophy winner led the team in scoring, averaging 14.8 points per game.
