The Ole Miss Rebels men’s basketball program will wrap up the 2023 calendar year with their final nonconference game of the season as they play host to the Bryant Bulldogs.
Twenty-four hours after the Rebs wrap up the Peach Bowl in Atlanta, make your way to Oxford to catch another Top-25 program seek to start 13-0. Despite not losing, the Rebs dropped three spots in the NET rankings to 60. Bryant is currently 177th in the NET, thus making this game a must-win at home in regards to resume building.
Ole Miss is currently the only team that has three players averaging at least 15 points per contest as Matthew Murrell, Alan Flanigan and Jaylen Murray are all above that mark. Bryant is led by 5th year guard Sherif Gross-Bullock (17.1), Memphis transfer Earl Timberlake (12.6) and junior guard Rafael Pinzon (12.6) off the bench.
Bryant can score, but can they do it against a Chris Beard defense? Can Ole Miss get the same production from their big three or will they need someone else to step up? This is the final tune up before SEC play starts on the road against Tennessee next week.
