The last undefeated team in the SEC hits the road to take on UCF in Orlando on Sunday.
Quadrant wins and losses are an important thing when it comes to tournament resumes but they are not just cut and dry.
For Ole Miss, the Rebels have an opportunity at a Quad I win because it is a road game against a top 75 NET ranking team currently. UCF would be taking a Quad III loss because Ole Miss is outside the top 75 and the Golden Knights are at home.
Yes it is all very confusing for the casual fan, but the two teams are separated by 20 spots in the NET ratings, so this another big opportunity for the Rebs. Ole Miss currently possesses two Quad II wins over Memphis and NC State and a Quad III win over Temple. All that to say, this would be the best resume win to date as odd as that sounds.
UCF’s only notable result is a 16-point road loss to Miami, so the Rebs will come in as the more battle tested team. Chris Beard and his staff pride themselves as a defensive team and defense is what travels, so hopefully Ole Miss can hold junior guard Jaylin Sellers in check as he leads the Golden Knights in scoring at 20.6 per contest.
