Ole Miss hoops teams play at home tonight

OleMissLogoOXFORD – The Ole Miss men’s and women’s basketball teams are back in action in a home doubleheader tonight.

The Rebels (2-0) take on Mississippi Valley State (1-3) with an approximate tip time of 7:30.

The women (1-4) face Southeastern Louisiana at 5.

Under first-year coach Matt Insell, the ladies split two home games before losing to West Virginia, Hawaii and Washington State last weekend in Honolulu.

The Rebels improved to 2-0 in a 72-70 win at Coastal Carolina. Marshall Henderson scored a game-high 19 points in his return, playing off the bench.

“The entire feel of the venue changed immediately when he checked in,” Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said.

Kennedy was non-committal on whether Henderson, who led the SEC in scoring last year at 20.1 points a game, will continue to play off the bench.

“We’re still trying to figure out who we are. I’m trying to figure out what our best combos are and who plays well together,” Kennedy said.
