Central Florida (2-1) at Ole Miss (3-1)
The Rebs return home to Oxford Wednesday after going 1-1 in Daytona Beach last weekend. The Rebels take on a 2-1 Central Florida team who are coming off of a 1 point win on the road over New Mexico. They have another win over NC A&T and a loss to the team that will always live in Ole Miss infamy, Valpo. The Knights only have one player averaging double digit scoring. That player is pre-season all-CUSA pick and boxing legend Jermaine Taylor. Taylor leads UCF in both scoring (21.3) and rebounding (6.7). UCF looks to be another decent test for the young Rebel team. It's definitely a game we should win, but it's another game that we can lose if we don't come to play. The Rebels are still looking for a third scorer to take the pressure off of Warren and Huertas. Hopefully Zach Graham will follow-up on the good performance that he had against South Alabama in our last game in Oxford. The Rebs will also be looking for some consistent play from our inexperienced front court group. Wednesday's game is the first of three at home for the Rebels before they head to New Orleans to take on UNO on December 6th.
