It was a formula that led to plenty of success, including 27 wins which tied a school record. The Rebels caught fire at the end of the season and won six straight - including the Southeastern Conference tournament championship for the first time since 1981 - before losing to LaSalle 76-74 on Sunday night in the third round of the NCAA tournament.

Whether or not there will be repercussions remains to be seen.
