OleMissLogoThe Ole Miss women’s basketball team will be on the road this evening in its second SEC game, taking on Tennessee.

The Rebels are coming off an 85-76 loss against Missouri last Thursday in their league opener. Ole Miss (9-6, 0-1 SEC) had won seven of eight before losing to Missouri but will be looking for its first SEC win under first-year coach Matt Insell.

Tip-off at Thompson-Boling Arena is 6 p.m., and the game will be televised by CSS.

The No. 8-ranked Lady Vols (12-2, 1-1 SEC) are led by Isabelle Harrison’s 13.8 points a game. Guards Tia Faleru and Valencia McFarland lead the Rebels each with 16 points a game. Freshman Shequila Joseph had a career-high 21 points against Missouri.

Tennessee has won 24 straight in the series.

The Rebels play at Alabama on Sunday.

Mississippi State (13-3, 0-2) is not playing tonight and will visit Arkansas on Sunday.
