The Siena Saints are averaging 76.6 points on 48.6 percent shooting and allowing 71.6 points on 48.7 percent shooting. Javian McCollum is averaging 15.8 points and 4.5 assists, while Andrew Platek is averaging 14.5 points and 2 rebounds. Jackson Stormo is the third double-digit scorer and Jayce Johnson is grabbing 3.3 rebounds. The Siena Saints are shooting 41.3 percent from beyond the arc and 70.7 percent from the free throw line.

The Ole Miss Rebels are averaging 73.4 points on 45.3 percent shooting and allowing 63.8 points on 40.1 percent shooting. Matthew Murrell is averaging 17.8 points and 3.3 assists, while Robert Allen is averaging 9.3 points and 5.8 rebounds.

The Siena Saints still have some showing and proving to do, mainly on the defensive side, as their defensive effort hasn't been great. FSU is horrible this season so that victory doesn't move the needle much. The Ole Miss Rebels are on a roll, especially defensively, and they're fresh off a nice underrated win over Stanford. It's still young, but Ole Miss has done enough to be worth a look in a competitive SEC. Early start, give me Ole Miss in another victory. I'll lay the expected chalk.
