Reeling from a last-minute loss to the arch-rival Mississippi State Bulldogs in Starkville, the Ole Miss Rebels (10-5, 1-1 SEC) will host another rival in the LSU Tigers tonight in a game that could have significant RPI implications. LSU (10-4, 1-1 SEC) boasts a powerful front court led by Johnny "The One Who Got Away" O'Byrant and freshman Jordan Mickey. O'Bryant averages 14.4 points and 7.4 rebounds per game while Mickey is proving to be one of the conference's most powerful freshmen, boasting 13.9 points and 7.2 rebounds per game.

The key to this game will then obviously to keep LSU's frontcourt as uninvolved as possible. The Tigers have talented rebounders, something which doesn't counter well with Ole Miss' struggles against the glass. Snoop White, who has played fairly well in SEC play thus far, needs to continue shooting well, while Jarvis Summers and Marshall Henderson will have to keep LSU's defense honest and spread out.

Speaking of Henderson, this will be his first SEC contest this season. Let's hope he makes something out of it.
