The Ole Miss women's basketball team made it four consecutive wins yesterday, seeing off Vanderbilt on the road 67-61.

Ole Miss secured a big road win over Vanderbilt, making it back-to-back wins on Commodores home court in the history of the program. The win puts the team in second spot in the Southeastern Conference, heading into a crunch clash against number one-ranked South Carolina.

In a tight game, the Rebels had a seven-point advantage heading into the fourth quarter. However, the Commodores could not reduce the deficit in the fourth quarter.

Marquesha Davis continued her hot streak, notching 25 points, making it three consecutive games, posting 20+ points. Davis hit nine of those points in the third quarter when the Rebels found themselves on the back foot.

The game could have been more one-sided. However, Vanderbilt were draining threes at a decent clip. The Commodores were hitting threes at a 47.1% rate, compared to the Rebels 30%. However, Ole Miss was way up in the rebound margin, posting 39, a season-high 11 from forward Tyia Singleton.

In the fourth quarter, Ole Miss played physical ball on defense. Alongside hitting 11 from 12 at the free throw line, the Rebels came away with the win, taking them to 6-2 in Southeastern Conference play.

The last four wins have seen some of the best play from the Rebels in different areas. The team will need to put that all together if they want to come away with a shock win at South Carolina on Sunday.
