The Ole Miss women’s basketball team welcomes the Southern Mississippi Lady Eagles into town for a mid-morning tilt on the hardwood on Tuesday. Tipoff is slated for 11 a.m. in the Pavilion, and local schools are invited to attend.
Ole Miss (8-1) is off to its best start since the 2005-06 season after defeating South Alabama 66-59 on Saturday. Junior point guard Alison Alston led the team in scoring with 27 points in a game in which South Alabama held the Rebels under 40 percent shooting in the game.
Coach Matt Insell’s squad currently averages 78.4 points per game – the fourth-best average in the SEC and 39th-best in the NCAA at the moment, which includes 80.2 PPG in wins. Junior Madinah Muhammad is averaging 20.2 ppg on the season.
This season, the Rebels have held seven of its nine opponents under 36 percent shooting, going 7-0 in such games. No Rebel opponent has eclipsed 50 percent shooting for a game, whereas Ole Miss has done so three times (going 3-0 in those games). Furthermore, the Rebels have held five of their nine opponents to under 30 percent in three-point shooting.
Southern Mississippi (6-2) rolls into to Oxford after dropping their last game to South Alabama 78-57 on November 30. The Lady Eagles are led this season by senior Jayla King with 17.9 points per game.
This game will be on SECNetwork + and can be heard on 105.1 /105.5 FM.
