Preview and Gamethread: Arkansas at Ole Miss

The Hogs will look to pull the road upset.

Time: Noon CT

TV: SEC Network

Location: Oxford, MS

Arkansas heads to the road to face one of the biggest surprises in the SEC. Despite their 10 game winning streak coming to an end in their last game, the Rebels are 13-3 and playing some of the best basketball in the conference

Breein Tyree and Terence Davis are the two main threats for the Rebels, both are shooting over 54% from inside the arc and over 39% from outside, and both at a high volume. Daniel Gafford will also have a big test in seven footer Dominik Olejniczak, though Gafford will have the weight and strength advantage in that one.

Ole Miss shoots the ball extremely well and will take few bad shots. Arkansas needs to keep the Rebels uncomfortable on offense and get some extra possessions by winning the turnover battle. The Rebels have also really struggled defending the three point line this year. So a good sign for the Hogs is if Isaiah Joe really got out of his shooting slump in the Tennessee game, if he hits seven three’s like he did against the Vols, Arkansas will have a much better shot in this one.
