OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA/Ole Miss Athletics) – Ole Miss women’s basketball opened the first official team practice of the Yolett McPhee-McCuin era with a spirited session at the Tuohy Basketball Center on Wednesday afternoon.

Afterward, Coach McPhee-McCuin gave her thoughts on the first day of practice.

ON HOW THE FIRST DAY OF PRACTICE WENT

“I thought the energy of the group was great. I thought they came out and everyone was excited and locked in. Obviously there is a lot we need to implement and work on, but for the most part, I felt like they controlled the controllables, which is their attitude and their effort.”

ON THE NEW ADDITIONS TO THE ROSTER AND THE NEW SYSTEM

“In my opinion, everyone is a newcomer because everyone is trying to get better. This is a new system for all parties involved. I’m just looking forward to growing with them and getting them to build chemistry on the floor, and that will happen over time.”

ON THE RETURN OF SHANDRICKA SESSOM AND MIMI REID FROM INJURY

“Mimi has been with us all summer, so that was great to have her. Drique is coming, slowly but surely, but we expect to have her back for the first of the season, and we look forward to having her out there.”

ON THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE HEADING UP TO GAMEDAY

“It’s just going to be consistency. I think with consistency, it’s maturity and it’s getting better. It all ties around to the word, just being consistent and working on getting one percent better every day.”

Season tickets for the 2018-19 season are now on sale. The Rebels open with a home exhibition vs. LeMoyne-Owen on Nov. 2 before tipping off the regular season vs. Norfolk State at home on Nov. 6.
