Ole Miss vs. Fordham: Four Factors

Here's how the Rebels (10-2) match up with the Fordham Rams (4-10) using the Four Factors. (National Rank in Parentheses)

Ole Miss O Fordham D Fordham O Ole Miss D
eFG% 50.1% (110) 50.1% (128) 46% (244) 42.4% (19)
TO% 16.2% (12) 17.6% (298) 23.4% (293) 24.2% (38)
OR% 36.6% (61) 30.6% (120) 35% (95) 30.8% (133)
FTR 37.1 (130) 47.0 (329) 31.7 (254) 36.1 (184)

The Rebels are back after a long layoff to take on Fordham. There’s nothing to break down here. Fordham is not a good team and one that the Rebels will steamroll regardless of how much they struggle early on shaking off the long break since playing on Christmas day in Hawaii. Of the 8 categories above, the only one in which the Rams rank in the top 100 in the country is OR%.

Opponents have shot 50.1% eFG% against the Rams, who have also struggled to force turnovers and have fouled way too much. When the Rams do get the ball, they don’t shoot very well, turn the ball over way too much and don’t get to the foul line. Mix all that together with a fairly quick pace of play favored by the Rams and it’s easy to see 90+ points tonight for the Rebels.

That said, Fordham has a couple of players worth watching tonight. Branden Frazier leads the team with 16.4ppg. He also chips in 4.1 rpg, 5.1 apg, and 1.0 spg. He doesn’t score efficiently though with a paltry 43.8% eFG%. Forward Chris Gatson is a 6-7, 231 lb F scoring 15.1 ppg and grabbing 7.9 rpg. He’s coming off a double-double Monday night against Monmouth.

Predictions:

Ole Miss 94 Fordham 61

Smallest crowd of the year with the bowl game tomorrow

Ole Miss attempts 25 FTs

(As always, the national rankings pulled from kenpom.com, quite possibly the coolest site on the whole wide intertubes... Red Cup Rebellion excluded of course)
