ESPN Events Invitational Bracket Revealed for Ole Miss Men’s Basketball

The ESPN Events Invitational that takes place over Thanksgiving weekend the bracket was unveiled on Tuesday for the Ole Miss Rebels.

Ole Miss will take the court against Stanford in the first round on Thanksgiving Day (Thurs., Nov. 24) at 12:30 p.m. CT on ESPNU. From there, Ole Miss will take on either Florida State or Siena the next day (Fri., Nov. 25) either at 10 a.m. CT on ESPN2 or 12:30 p.m. CT on ESPN+. The final round will pit the Rebels against a team from the other side of the bracket – Memphis, Nebraska, Oklahoma or Seton Hall – with the opponent, time and TV network depending on outcome of the tournament to that point.

“The ESPN Events Invitational is an elite field,” said Ole Miss head coach Kermit Davis. “Stanford is an outstanding, well-coached team that will be a great challenge in the first round. We sure hope to see a lot of Rebels in Orlando!”

That Thanksgiving matchup against the Cardinal will be the first between Ole Miss and Stanford, as would a second round tilt against Siena. If the Rebels end up with Florida State in the next round, it would be the first against the Seminoles since 2004. Florida State leads the all-time series 3-1 against Ole Miss, with a split during an in-season home-and-home within the 1950-51 season on Jan. 11 (L, 63-58; in Tallahassee) and Feb. 14 (W, 79-75; in Oxford), and another home-and-home a half-century later on Dec. 3, 2003 (L, 66-60; in Tallahassee) and Dec. 4, 2004 (L, 69-64; in Oxford).

The 2022 ESPN Events Invitational will be held Nov. 24-27 at the State Farm Field House at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney World. The invitational will feature 12 total games across three days of action, with each team playing in one game per day and advancing through the bracket. The two teams that remain undefeated throughout will face off in a championship matchup on Sun., Nov. 27. All games will air on the ESPN family of networks, with the Sunday championship game slated for ESPN at 12:30 p.m. CT.

Ticket information and travel packages will be announced later this summer. Fans can sign up on the event website for a pre-sale to guarantee first access and a $10 discount on all price levels.
