It does. Seriously. No, we're not kidding. We mean this as in a real game against a real team which will go down as
either a loss or a win in our record column is taking place tonight at the Tad Pad. The Roundball Rebels will square off against the Trojans of the University of Arkansas Little Rock--which is, interestingly enough, the alma mater of Derek Fisher of the LA Lakers--at 6 of the clock post meridiem. I highly doubt you've got something better to do, and "getting blasted while a freshman grinds my crotch at The Library" doesn't count as such, so be there.
Some links of significance:
- Our comprehensive basketball preview.
- Neal McReady's take on this season's prospects (RebelSports.net)
- The first signing of Mississippians to play basketball at Ole Miss in the past four years. This is a big enough deal to merit its own separate post, as the Rebel basketball program has signed two Clarion-Ledger Dandy Dozen prospects for the first time in... ever? Dundrecous Nelson, a point guard out of Murrah, and DeMarco Cox, a center out of Yazoo, both inked with the Rebs earlier this week.
Tad Pad. Tonight. Be there. I know this game isn't terribly significant, but let this team know you're excited about the upcoming season.
