HOOVER, Ala. — Likely needing a win to ensure a spot in the NCAA Tournament, Ole Miss will take on Vanderbilt in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Tuesday.
The Rebels and Commodores did not meet during the regular season, but both will be seeking a win to try and advance to the double elimination portion of the tournament that begins on Wednesday. Ole Miss enters Tuesday’s game with an RPI of 36 and a conference record of 14-16 after dropping a series to Texas A&M over the weekend.
The Rebels have a recent history of success in the SEC Tournament in Hoover, last winning the tournament in 2018. Ole Miss also advanced to the championship game of the tournament in 2019 but was defeated by Vanderbilt.
