How to watch No. 22 Ole Miss at No. 5 Tennessee: Tipoff time, TV schedule and streaming options

The real schedule starts Saturday

NCAA Basketball: Mount St. Mary’s at Mississippi Petre Thomas-USA TODAY Sports

A 13-0 start to the season is a great accomplishment considering the past few years of basketball in Oxford. In fact, it’s only the second time ever in program history this has ever happened.

But Chris Beard and company is headed into a gauntlet of conference play and 13-0 means nothing if you don’t win in the SEC.

The Vols are 10-3 on the season with losses to Kansas, North Carolina and Purdue, all three top 10 teams. A result with some interest to the Rebels is the Vols 9-point victory over a NC State team that Ole Miss defeated by 20.

Josiah Jordan-James and Dalton Knecht are the players to watch for UT. Jordan-James is like 34 years old and is a man amongst boys out there. Hopefully Sharp and Cisse can keep him off the glass where he most effective. Knecht can light it up and guys like Flanigan and Murrell will have their work cut out for them on the defensive end of the floor.

Tennessee scores about 10 points more than the Rebels give up per game on average. It will be an interesting game in terms of who controls the pace. Ole Miss wants to get stops and score in transition as do the Vols. Rick Barnes and Chris Beard are both coaches who pride themselves on the defensive end of the floor, so the potential for a defensive struggle is there.
