The Ole Miss Rebels are currently riding the momentum of a three-game conference winning streak after dominating the Missouri Tigers on Saturday afternoon in Columbia, 67-47.

The Rebels look to keep that high-intensity play on both sides of the ball on Wednesday evening as they return home to the friendly confines of Tad Smith Coliseum and welcome in the red-hot Texas A&M Aggies.

Ole Miss (14-7, 5-3) is looking to derail the Aggies from a six-game winning streak in conference play. They will need to rely on the play of junior Stefan Moody who scored 23 points against the Tigers in Mizzou.

The Rebels also leads the nation as a team from the charity stripe at 80.1 precent, led by Moody who leads the conference at 90.7 percent.

Ole Miss is ranked No. 47 in the RPI on the season with the Aggies currently sitting at No. 32. Ole Miss’s record against the RPI top 35 this season is 2-2 with wins over No. 24 Arkansas and No. 34 Cincinnati.

Texas A&M is 15-5 on the year and 6-2 in the SEC after knocking off Auburn and Vanderbilt last week. The Aggies are led in scoring by junior transfers Danuel House and Jalen Jones with 14.2 points per game each. They also have a familar face on their bench this season in Rick Stansbury, the former Mississippi State head coach, as an assistant coach to Billy Kennedy.

Gametime is set for 6 p.m. and can be seen on SEC Network, or fans can listen to all the action on the Ole Miss Radio Network.
