Ole Miss Women’s basketball Coach Yolett McPhee-McCuin has been named ESPN’s National Coach of the Week for the final week of the regular season.’s Michael Voepel writes:

“Coach Yo” has turned around the program at Ole Miss. The Rebels cruised past Missouri, Kentucky and Arkansas this past week, finishing with a program-record 12 SEC victories. A 12-4 mark is good for third place in the league. Consider four years ago — McPhee-McCuin’s second season trying to rebuild the program — Ole Miss went 0-16 in league play. Even then, though, she saw the light at the end of the tunnel. After four SEC wins in 2020-21, the Rebels have had double-digit league victories now the past three years in a row and reached the Sweet 16 last season.
