Oxford: The Volunteers rode a very hot first half to victory in Oxford, Tennessee. They took a 41-26 lead into the locker room at half that helped the Volunteers to victory, despite being outscored 39-32 by Ole Miss in the second half. The Rebels were flat out cold from behind the arc today going a pitiful 1-23 which is mere 4%.
Ole Miss showed fight in the second half as they outscored the Volunteers and despite losing their coach Mid-season that is highly impressive for the Rebels. The Rebels will close out the season as they face a road test at Kentucky on Tuesday night, before returning home Saturday night for senior night against a feisty Vanderbilt Commodore squad. The Volunteers will close out the season with a road test at Mississippi State on Tuesday, and a home game Saturday as they host the Georgia Bulldogs.
