The Ole Miss Rebels will host the LSU Tigers in the Tad Smith Coliseum on Wednesday night, with tipoff slated for 6 p.m on SEC network.

Ole Miss (10-5, 1-1 SEC) defeated the Gamecocks of South Carolina 65-49 with Jarvis Summers leading the Rebels with 20 points.

Stefan Moody also contributed 16 points in the game, all of them coming in the second half of the game. Moody drained 3 3-pointers in the second half after having to sit in the first half with two quick fouls.

Ole Miss still leads nation in free throw percentage, hitting 79.1 percent of its attempts. The Rebels have hit 104 of their last 123 (.846) attempts from the line.

LSU rolls into Oxford with a 12-3 record and a 1-1 in the conference. The Tigers split their matchups with Missouri and Georgia last week.  Before starting their conference slate, LSU had won eight-straight games.

The Bayou Bengals are led by two big men in scoring by Jarell Martin and Jordan Mackey who combine to score on average 32.7 points per game with 19.2 rebounds. The Tigers also have four players averaging double figures each time out on the court, including guard Tim Quarterman, who is averaging 23.0 ppg in his last two conference outings.

Wednesday night will be the 205th meeting between the two schools, and LSU leads the series at 117-87, although the Rebels have won seven of the last eight meetings, including four straight at home.
