The Rebels bettered the Kentucky Wildcats yesterday 4-1 to advance to the double elimination round of the SEC Baseball Tournament. They will play the Arkansas Razorbacks at 9:30 AM Central on ESPN3.

Ole Miss lives to day two of the 2013 SEC Baseball tournament, and they're set to face number 3 seeded Arkansas at 9:30 AM Central time this morning. Sophomore righty Sam Smith will take the bump against the Razorbacks; his counterpart will be junior righty Barrett Astin. Read more on the pitching matchup here.

The Razorbacks are hitting .261 as a team entering the conference tournament. Brian Anderson has been the hottest Razorback bat, boasting a batting average of .349 with four homers and 33 RBI. He's a stunning is 16-for-28 (.571) with two homers and seven RBI in his last 8 games. He is fourth in the SEC in batting average against SEC competition with .371.

Other Hog bats to watch are Jacob Mahan, who is hitting .291 on the season with two homers and 20 RBI; Matt Vinson, who is batting .287 with two round-trippers and 22 RBI; and Tyler Spoon, who has driven in a team-high 43 runs and is hitting .280 with four homers.

As we noted earlier in the year these two teams are very similar on paper, making this a very interesting matchup in this tournament. As you'll recall, the Rebs took two of three from Arkansas in Fayetteville to open SEC play - let's hope such luck continues.
