Ole Miss Women's basketball made it five wins in a row, making light work of Kentucky with a 75-45 victory. The win also reached a milestone in Coach Yolett McPhee-McCuin's tenure with the Rebels.

After back-to-back losses at the start of February, the Rebels have broken off five wins on the bounce with yesterday's win against Kentucky. The win gave Coach Yo her 100th win as the Ole Miss Women's Basketball head coach, achieving the milestone in her sixth season.

The first of those 100 wins came in Coach Yo's first season with the Rebels in 2018-2019, winning her first game of the season 60-42 against Norfolk State. Since that first season at the helm, the straight-talking head coach has propelled the team to back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances, with that looking likely to be a third this season.

Years of mediocracy from the Ole Miss Women's basketball team have almost been forgotten, thanks to the last four seasons under Yolett McPhee-McCuin.

Fans frequently speak about the impact Lane Kiffin has made with Ole Miss Football, rightfully so. Even Chris Beard is getting positive impact reviews in his first season in Oxford. Let's not forget what Coach Yo has done for her team.

Not only in Oxford have we witnessed her impact on the team but on the women's game as a whole. McPhee-McCion is a constant ambassador for not just women's basketball but women's sports. She is a role model for young girls and boys. It's a privilege to call Yolett McPhee-McCuin our head coach.

The Ole Miss Lady Rebels are one win away from recording the most Southeastern Conference wins in program history. Also, the highest finish in the conference since the 1991-92 season. This team is building for success. Don't be surprised to see Ole Miss Women capture a championship sooner rather than later.
