Oxford:

The Ole Miss Rebels and Mississippi State Bulldogs are set to meet on Saturday afternoon from the Pavilion in Oxford, Mississippi. This will be the second meeting between the two rivals this season with the first game going in favor of the Rebels by a score of 81-77 back on January 12th in Starkville, Missississippi.

Ole Miss has won an impressive nine out of the last eleven against arch-rival Missississipi State Bulldogs, the Rebels are also going for the season sweep over the Bulldogs for a third time in the last five seasons. When the Rebels and Bulldogs take the hardwood on Saturday it will be the 259th meeting between the two teams, the most out of any rivalry in the SEC. The Bulldogs lead the overall series with Ole Miss by a margin of 143-116.

Coming into the game with Missississippi State, Ole Miss will look to stop their losing streak at three games and to avoid the infamous “ Bubble” talk from all the College Basketball Tournament experts. Head Coach Kermit Davis has had his Rebels playing at such a high level throughout the entirety of his first season as Heach Coach at Ole Miss, such a high level that many Rebels fans haven’t seen since the days of Marshall Henderson.

Both teams will turn to two players each to lead their respected team to victory on Saturday. Missississippi State will turn to the Weatherspoon brothers to lead the Bulldogs to a road win in Oxford. Quinndary Weatherspoon leads the Bulldogs in scoring with an average of 15 points per game, while his brother ( Nick Weatherspoon) averages right 10 points per game. These two brothers will have to be a huge factor in the game with Ole Miss if the Bulldogs want to have to a chance at a win in Oxford. The Rebels will turn to their two upperclassmen guards in Breein Tyree and Terrance Davis, these two have played major roles in the Rebel’s success this season. These two players come into the game with the Bulldogs averaging near the same in scoring average, with Tyree averaging 17.4 per game and Davis averaging 16.4 points per game.

By the numbers, these two teams are deadlocked at every possible stat line that two teams can be. Ole Miss and Missississippi State both average 78 points per game, both shoot on average 47% from the field and the list goes on.

Here’s what Ben Howland of Mississippi State had to say about the game with Ole Miss.

Ben Howland ( Missississippi State)-

[Blake] Hinson had a great game against us. Obviously, 26 points. He was effective shooting the ball from the three. Obviously, we’ve got to be very aware of him. They have an outstanding team led by [Terence] Davis and [Breein] Tyree. Those two guys, in particular, have been incredibly consistent both in the conference and the non-conference in terms of their scoring with all of the different things they do defensively – rebounding. I think Davis is averaging eight rebounds a game which is very impressive. He’s shooting a great percentage and passing the ball well. Tyree makes big shots and gets a lot of assists.

[Dominik] Olejniczak, the big kid, he played really well against us. I think he is one of the most improved players in the league when you look at where he was his first two years to where he is now. [Bruce] Stevens played well. He had two big three’s against us – had a controversial play in the last minute that didn’t go against them, but he is playing well as a senior. He’s doing a good job for them and playing a very important role for their team. I like [Devontae] Shuler. They have a good team. We’ve got to do a better job with them in every aspect.”

As Saturday afternoon rolls around in the Magnolia state all eyes will be turned on the massive battle between the Rebels and the Bulldogs. This latest battle is bound to be full of exciting, high flying basketball. The game will begin at 2:30 on CBS and it will be one that you won’t want to miss.
