Obviously this is a must win for both teams... albeit slim NCAA tournament hopes. Ole Miss is much more balanced than I thought... 4 averaging double digits in points.
- 45% FG, 36% 3PT FG, 70% FT
- Rebound margin of +.5
- Still a small team (like that was going to change from the last time we played)
- A little over 11 turnovers a game
Contain Doyne and Sanders from the outside and not allow Abernathy to penetrate and we should be ok. Arkansas blasted them a couple of weeks ago and we could do the same if the team shows up. If there was a time for this team to play an "A" game it would be on senior night.
Prediction- We'll be tied for 1st place in the West... Alabama 74 Ole Miss 70.
