The Rebels will try to keep their hopes alive of making the NCAA Tournament, but have a tall task ahead

The 2022 Southeastern Conference Tournament will begin this week in Hoover, Ala. Twelve of 14 programs across the South will meet inside the walls of the Hoover Metropolitan Stadium for a shot at winning the conference title and strengthen its chances for the NCAA tournament.

A loss for Ole Miss (32-21, 14-16 SEC) all but eliminates its chances of making the national tournament. The Rebels were one of five teams in the conference to finish below .500 against SEC opponents.
