Ole Miss @ Stanford
Current Records: Ole Miss 5-0; Stanford 1-2
What to Know
The Ole Miss Rebels will take on the Stanford Cardinal at 1:30 p.m. ET Thursday at State Farm Field House.
Last week, Ole Miss narrowly escaped with a win as the squad sidled past the UT Martin Skyhawks 72-68. The Rebels' forward Myles Burns looked sharp as he had 13 points along with eight rebounds and five steals. Burns had some trouble finding his footing against the Chattanooga Mocs last Tuesday, so this was a step in the right direction. Burns' points were the most he has had all year.
Meanwhile, Stanford was completely in charge last week, breezing past the Cal Poly Mustangs 80-43 at home. Forward Max Murrell (12 points) and guard Michael Jones (12 points) were the top scorers for Stanford.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Ole Miss is expected to win a tight contest. Those burned by picking them against the spread last Friday might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
Their wins bumped Ole Miss to 5-0 and the Cardinal to 1-2. Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports to find out who keeps up the positive energy and who hits a stumbling block.
