Rebels try to keep rolling against Louisiana-Monroe

OleMissLogoOle Miss will try to put back-to-back men’s basketball wins together tonight against Louisiana-Monroe.

The Rebels (7-2) won their first six games to open the season before stumbling at Kansas State and at home against then-No. 13 Oregon.

They held off Middle Tennessee State 72-63 on Saturday.

Tipoff at Tad Smith Coliseum is 6 tonight, and the game will be televised by CSS.

ULM has played only five games this season due to APR sanctions which has limited it to a 26-game schedule. The Warhawks are 3-2 and coming off a 61-54 loss at LSU.

ULM is holding opponents to 22.7 percent 3-point shooting.

Ole Miss, meanwhile, has the nation’s leader in 3-point makes. Marshall Henderson is shooting 37.8 percent from the arc and hit 4.25 3-point shots per game.

He was 4-for-9 from 3-point range against Middle Tennessee and has hit 43 percent or better in three of his last four games.

Ole Miss leads the series with ULM 14-4. The teams last played in 2011, a 60-38 Rebels win.
