Before the start of the game, the Rebels will honor the team’s five seniors: Jarvis Summers, Snoop White, Aaron Jones, M.J. Rhett and Terence Smith. A four-year starter out of Jackson, Summers became only the ninth player in Ole Miss history to reach 80 wins in his career with 83.

Ole Miss (20-10, 11-6) returns to the confines of the Tad Pad after a critical road victory over Alabama. The Rebels have now posted 20 wins for the seventh time in nine seasons under head coach Andy Kennedy.

Vanderbilt (18-12, 8-9) comes into Oxford riding a four-game winning streak after knocking off Mississippi State 66-56 at home Wednesday. The Commodores are led by sophomore Damian James, who is averaging 14.5 ppg. and pulling down 6.3 rpg.

The Commodores lead the league in three-point percentage at 38.1 percent, but rank last in opponent three-pointer percentage at 38.7 percent. Saturday’s matchup will be the 118th meeting between Ole Miss and Vanderbilt with the Commodores holding a 74-42 advantage in the all-time series.

The Rebels currently hold the No. 3 position in the conference, having won the tiebreaker against Texas A&M. If they win, they’ll have that spot locked up, but if they lose, they could fall all the way to sixth.

Tipoff is set for 8 p.m. on SEC Network.
