PICK: I’m probably going to stay with Ole Miss in this one. We’re probably in for a great matchup, though. The Rebels had a sluggish first half in their last outing versus TN-Martin and ultimately shot a tepid 38.9 percent from the field. Ole Miss managed a 41-34 rebounding edge and had a great second half on the way to the win. As for Stanford, they’re coming off a great game versus Cal Poly, shooting 49.2 percent from the floor. Ole Miss will be a much tougher customer however, and I don’t think the Cardinal will win/cover.
