Still panting from that furious rally against BYU late Tuesday night, Ole Miss gets back to work on Thursday afternoon in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. This time the competition jumps: the Rebels have to contend with six-seeded Xavier.
Not that this is an uneatable team by any means. They've gone down 13 times this season, including head scratching losses to DePaul, Creighton, Long Beach State and hell, even Auburn, a team Ole Miss handled by seven points on the road. But Xavier has also notched season sweeps of ranked Butler and Georgetown squads and is 16-12 against the RPI 150.
The biggest concern with this game, however, is the fact that it tips off during your work day: 3:10 p.m. CT. Those of us on the East Coast can at least dip away from the office an hour early, but most Rebel fans will have to be sneaking this one at work. Thanks to NCAA March Madness Live, that shouldn't be too much of a problem, as long as you're quick with the minimize button. And if you download the app, you can even watch from your phone. Just tell your boss those emails you're checking are really exciting.
