I miss the Rowdy Rebel....
The Rebels are looking for their 1st SEC road win of the season. Will it happen in Tuscaloosa? They've been oh so close in 3 of their 4 SEC road games.
This is the first of 2 meetings between teams that can't close the deal in conference play (for us that stretches to the entire season). Ole Miss stats. Note that the stats listed are only conference stats. This link (pdf) includes full season stats.
Led by freshman Chris Warren and Dwayne Curtis, Ole Miss is 11th in the nation in scoring, although they haven't put up 80 points since beating Florida last month. Still, besides the Miss State beatdown, they've been in every game. Warren leads the team in scoring and assists while Curtis leads in rebounds and is 2nd in FT percentage. Curtis is tied with our own Richard Hendrix with 12 double-doubles. Eniel Polynice averages 12 PPG and leads the team in steals. Trevor Gaskins is one of the guys to watch beyond the arc.
To read more about Ole Miss click here for their preview of the game tomorrow night. That's one heck of a writeup.
- 46.6% FG
- 36.3% 3PT FG
- 64% FT
- Rebound margin of +6.5
- 12.8 turnovers per game
Prediction- Will Ole Miss finally win a close one on the road or will we finally beat a decent team at home? I say this is our most winnable home game left on the schedule being that Ole Miss has been mediocre in conference play. Bama by 4.
