The Ole Miss women’s basketball team plays host to the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns tomorrow, Dec. 12 in the annual kids day game at the Pavilion. Tip-off is at 11 a.m. on the SEC Network+.

Ole Miss (4-6) is coming off a 74-51 win over Savannah State on Saturday. Senior Crystal Allen had a career-high 27 points in the game along with eight rebounds and six assists.

This season Ole Miss head coach Yolette McPhee-McCuin’s squad has three newcomers in Allen (176 points) Jhileya Dunlap (79 points) and La’Karis Salter (70 points) Collectively, they have accounted for 55.1 percent of all Rebel scoring.

Louisiana comes into the Pavilion with a 2-6 record to start the season. The Ragin’ Cajuns have two double-digit scorers on the season in Ty’Reona Ducet (16.1) and Brandi Williams (11.4). Ducet opened the season with six straight double-doubles and is averaging 12 rebounds per contest.
