After a emphatic victory over Mississippi State on Wednesday night the Ole Miss Rebels jump back into action as they take on the Missouri Tigers in Columbia on Saturday afternoon. Tipoff is set for 3 p.m. and will be televised on Fox Sports South.

Ole Miss comes into this match up after a 79-73 win over the Bulldogs. Senior Jarvis Summers had a break out game with 22 points and 20 of them coming in the second half. That helped the Rebels to improve to 13-7 and 4-3 in conference play.

As a team, coach Andy Kennedy’s squad continues to lead the nation in free-throw percentage at 79.9 on the year. Stefan Moody also leads the conference from the charity line as he is shooting 90.7 precent.

Missouri is struggling a bit in conference play this season as they seat at 1-6 and 7-13 overall. Last week, the Tigers dropped a pair of games to Arkansas and Texas A&M. Mizzou is led on the season by Memphis native Johnathan Williams III who is averaging 12.6 ppg and 7.1 rebounds a contest.

As a team, the Tigers score on average 63.2 points per game and that number has dropped in league play to 58.5 which puts them last in the SEC.

Saturday will be the fifth meeting between the Rebels and the Tigers with Ole Miss holding a 3-1 advantage over Missouri although the Rebs are looking for their first win in Columbia, Missouri.
