OXFORD – After last week’s very successful road trip and a break this week for final exams, the Ole Miss Rebels are back in action today.
Mississippi Valley State (1-7) visits Tad Smith Coliseum for a 2 p.m., tip.
The Rebels (7-1) won road games last week at DePaul (70-68) and at Penn State (72-70).
The road wins have given Ole Miss an RPI ranking of No. 9 going into today’s game.
Valley has been competitive for stretches of time in losses to Notre Dame, DePaul, South Carolina and North Carolina.
Ole Miss forward Murphy Holloway (11.4, ppg, 10.5 rpg) has had double-doubles in the last three games. He ranks second in the SEC, 18th in the NCAA in rebounding.
