Current Records: Ole Miss 9-5; Texas A&M 13-2
What to Know
Get ready for an SEC battle as the Ole Miss Rebels and the Texas A&M Aggies will face off at 8:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Reed Arena. Ole Miss earned a 61-50 win in their most recent matchup against A&M in January of last year.
The Rebels were able to grind out a solid win over the Mississippi State Bulldogs this past Saturday, winning 82-72. Four players on Ole Miss scored in the double digits: guard Matthew Murrell (31), guard Daeshun Ruffin (17), center Nysier Brooks (15), and forward Jaemyn Brakefield (15). This also makes it three games in a row in which Daeshun Ruffin has had at least three steals.
Meanwhile, A&M didn’t have too much breathing room in their contest with the Arkansas Razorbacks this past Saturday, but they still walked away with an 86-81 victory. A&M’s success was the result of a balanced attack that saw several players step up, but forward Henry Coleman III led the charge as he had 14 points along with nine rebounds.
The Rebels are expected to lose this next one by 5.5. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
Their wins bumped Ole Miss to 9-5 and the Aggies to 13-2. Matthew Murrell will be someone to keep an eye on after he shot 5-for-5 from downtown and finished with 31 points this past Saturday. Let’s see if he can build on that strong performance or if Texas A&M’s defense can bottle him up.
