One of the remaining undefeated teams in SEC basketball, Ole Miss is set to put that record on the line Sunday at home against the Memphis Tigers. The two teams have met each of the last two seasons, with the Rebels having won at home in 2021-22, followed by a win last season for the Tigers in Memphis.
Led by head coach Chris Beard, Ole Miss enters this matchup sitting at an undefeated 6-0 overall for the season. Those six victories have come against Alabama State, Eastern Washington, Detroit Mercy, Sam Houston, Temple, and NC State.
Averaging 72.2 PPG offensively, the Rebels are led by three double-digit scorers in Allen Flanigan, Matthew Murrell, and Jaylen Murray, the first of which leads the team at 19.3 PPG and 7.7 RPG after transferring from Auburn. The Rebels are also allowing 64.5 PPG to opponents, and have a few other prominent names to know such as TJ Caldwell, Jaemyn Brakefield, and Jamarion Sharp.
Led by head coach Penny Hardaway, Memphis enters this matchup sitting at 5-1 overall for the season. After beginning the season with five-straight wins over Jackson State, Missouri, Alabama State, Michigan, and Arkansas, the Tigers are coming off their first loss of the season where they fell to Villanova on a neutral-court.
Memphis is currently averaging 79 PPG offensively for the year, and also have three double-digit scorers in David Jones, Jahvon Quinerly, and Jaykwon Walton. The Tigers are also one of the AAC’s top teams in BPG at 5.7, and are allowing 72 PPG to opponents with others such as Caleb Mills, Jordan Brown, Nick Jourdain, Ashton Hardaway, and Malcolm Dandridge among the other names to know.
