After landing just outside of the top 25 a week ago, the Ole Miss basketball team broke into both the AP and coaches’ poll this week with wins at Vanderbilt and at home against Arkansas.

The Rebels (15-2, 4-0 SEC) are No. 23 in the AP poll and No. 24 in the coaches’ poll.

It is the first time Ole Miss has jumped into the rankings since Feb. 1 2010.

Ole Miss is among three total teams in the SEC that are ranked. Florida is No. 8 in AP and No. 7 in coaches’, while Missouri sits one spot in front of the Rebels at No. 22 in the AP poll and No. 22 in the coaches’ poll.

Here are the complete rankings for the AP poll and the coaches’ poll.

The Rebels will look to keep their momentum going in league play when they host Tennessee on Thursday night at 6 p.m. from Tad Smith Coliseum on ESPN2
