The Ole Miss Rebels also hope to remain undefeated after beating the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles in overtime Friday. Ole Miss shot 46.4 percent from the field and made 12 threes in the winning effort. Deandre Burnett led the Rebels with 41 points and four assists while Terence Davis had 13 points and five rebounds off the bench. Sebastian Saiz chipped in 11 points and six rebounds. Ole Miss may have lost its best player from last year, but the Rebels are still extremely experienced and clearly still have playmakers who can put the ball through the hoop. Ole Miss has scored at least 86 points in all three games this season. The Ole Miss Rebels have lost three of their last four games on neutral site courts.
The Hawks are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Sunday games and 25-8-1 ATS in their last 34 games overall. The Rebels are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 19-7 in Rebels last 26 overall and the over is 13-5 in Hawks last 18 overall.
Ole Miss needed everything from Burnett just to get to this game and that lack of depth at this point in the season won't be enough to hang with Saint Joseph's. The Hawks are experienced, take care of the basketball and have quality depth. Saint Joseph's and the low line should be the play here.
