Ole Miss Hoopsters Look to Extend Win Streak Against Hogs in Fayetteville

Marshall and the boys are ready to take on the Hogs.

Junior Jarvis Summers and the rest of the Ole Miss basketball team go into Bud Walton Arena tonight to face the Arkansas Razorbacks.
This will complete the road slate of the Rebels regular season schedule.
Ole Miss (17-12, 8-8 SEC) hopes to rebound from a 71-60 loss to Texas A&M on Saturday night.  Summers led the team in scoring with 18 points, while senior Marshall Henderson, was close behind with 16 points in College Station, Texas.
Summers has been awarded the C Spire Howell Trophy Monday, by the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame.
On the season, Ole Miss ranks third in the conference from the free-throw line, hitting an average of 73.4 percent of their charity line attempts.
Arkansas (20-9, 9-7 SEC) picked up a pair of wins last week, by knocking off Kentucky 71-67 and defeating the Georgia Bulldogs 87-75 at home. The Razorbacks are led by freshman Bobby Portis who is averaging 12.6 points per game and 6.7 rebounds a contest.
As a club, Arkansas comes into the game winning five-straight and seven of their last eight SEC games. At home, the Razorbacks are 15-2 and have a 6-2 record in league play on their own court.
When the Rebels and the Razorbacks tip-off this evening it will be the 72nd meeting between the two schools. Arkansas holds the series advantage at 41-30, although the Rebels are looking for their seventh-straight win over the Hogs and will be going for their fifth straight victory in Bud Walton Arena.
Fans can watch the game on ESPN3 or listen to the play-by-play on the Ole Miss Radio Network. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 o’clock.
