Ole Miss vs MTSU: Four Factors Preview

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

Here's how the Rebels (6-2) match up with the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders (7-2) using the Four Factors. (National Rank in Parentheses)

OM O MTSU D MTSU O OM D
eFG% 50.5% (132) 46.3% (78) 50.7% (126) 46.5% (87)
TO% 15.9% (57) 19.7% (109) 19.5% (224) 19.5% (123)
OR% 33.3% (132) 30.3% (119) 35.2% ( 84) 31.2% (156)
FTR 43.6 (123) 51.9 (306) 56.4 (18) 42.8 (207)

Official Preview from OleMissSports.com is here.

The Rebels look to snap a 2-game skid tomorrow afternoon as they take on the MTSU Blue Raiders. This is an MTSU team that the Rebels have lost to in both 2011 and 2012, so there's some pride on the line as well. The Blue Raiders' are experienced team, as their top 4 scorers are seniors.

The Rebels have to find a way to score more efficiently inside the 3-point line. They're shooting 37.6% from deep on the season, which ranks in the top 70 in the country, but rank 230th in the country on 2-pointers, shooting just 47.1%. MTSU is holding opponents to just 45% shooting on 2s, which ranks 76th best in the country.

(Sure to be terribly, terribly wrong) Predictions:

Ole Miss 81, MTSU 71

(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)
