Ole Miss fell in the opening round of the SEC Tournament on Tuesday night, and a tournament champion was crowned on Sunday.
The Rebels' RPI has fluctuated throughout the week of play, and No. 1 seed Tennessee took home the title with a win on Sunday afternoon. Ole Miss entered the week with an RPI of 36, and its first-round exit solidified it as a bubble team entering Selection Monday of the NCAA Tournament.
The Rebels entered the tournament with a 14-16 conference record after dropping a home series to Texas A&M last weekend, and they were the No. 9 seed in Hoover, opening against the No. 8 Commodores. If Ole Miss had advanced out of Tuesday's bout with Vanderbilt, it would have moved on to the double elimination portion of the bracket and face the eventual-champion Tennessee Volunteers.
With the early exit in the conference tournament, hopes of the Rebels reaching the big dance have dimmed. As Ole Miss tries to reach the NCAA Tournament, its RPI and conference record have evolved in Hoover. Check back here for updates on the Rebels' RPI leading up to Selection Monday.
