Quick Note

Ole Miss hosts the University of Georgia tomorrow night in one of those "must win" games. The Rebels need to beat UGA in order to keep their run at the NCAA tournament alive. The Rebels return to Tad Smith Coliseum where they have a 13-1 record this season. They need to continue their dominance at home as this is the next to last home game of the season. It is imperative for the Rebels to get back in the win column before they go on a two game road trip to South Carolina and Alabama.

Ole Miss is currently 17-9 and 6-6 in the SEC. They are sitting atop the SEC West with Alabama and Mississippi State. For the Rebels to win they are going to need to play better than they did on Saturday at Arkansas. I am really looking for more from Bam Doyne who has slacked off the past couple of games. He started the season off hot and has been up and down with his scoring in SEC play.

Georgia is coming into the game with a three game winning streak, most recently a win against Auburn last Saturday. The Dawgs come to Oxford minus one of their key players, Mike Mercer, who tore a ligament in his knee a couple of weeks ago. Georgia is 16-9 and 7-5 in the SEC. Many backet analysts have Georgia as a better chance of getting into the NCAA tourney than Ole Miss.

All in all the Rebs have to win this game.
