Ole Miss basketball is set to play its first true road game of the season Saturday and will look to score a big win in the process.
The Rebels (6-1) head to FedExForum to take on Memphis (5-2), looking for a second consecutive win over their neighbors to the northwest. Ole Miss has won four of the last five meetings, including a 67-63 victory last year.
Kermit Davis’ team comes into this game having suffered its first loss of the season on Sunday to Oklahoma at the ESPN Events Invitational. Of the Rebels’ six victories on the season, two are over top-100 opponents according to KenPom’s ratings.
Memphis, fresh off a victory on Wednesday over North Alabama, also took part in the ESPN Events Invitational, coming home from Orlando, Florida, with a 2-1 record. The Tigers are led by their strong defense and outstanding transfer guard Kendric Davis.
