Kennedy Releases Schedule

This is the below writeup from Clarion Ledger about the basketball schedule. I expect we will get an official announcement from the UMAA soon. I like the New Mexico scheduling, will have to do some more research on Central Florida.

(C-L)Ole Miss has completed its basketball schedule for the 2007-08 season by signing deals with non-conference opponents New Mexico and Central Florida, coach Andy Kennedy said tonight.Speaking before the Rebel Reunion at the Trade Mart in Jackson, Kennedy said the Rebels will play a two-game series against New Mexico and three-game series against Central Florida. Kennedy said Ole Miss will host New Mexico and new coach Steve Alford in December, then play at Albuquerque the following season.Ole Miss will play Central Florida in Orlando this season, said Kennedy, and then the Golden Knights will play games in Oxford the next two years.Kennedy also said a previously reported three-year deal to play Southern Miss is almost finalized. The Rebels and Golden Eagles will play games in Jackson, Biloxi and Southaven. The first game in the series will be in Southaven, said Kennedy.
