An opportunity to gain a measure of revenge as well as improve their position in the Southeastern Conference Western Division standings is what the Ole Miss Rebels can gain from a win over Mississippi State. The two teams meet for the final time in the regular season at Humphrey Coliseum Saturday afternoon and both looking to gain ground on each other in the race to be the No. 2 seed in next month’s SEC Tournament.

Finding additional scorers to complement the attention senior guard Chris Warren draws from opposing defenses has been something Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy has tried to work on all season.
Only fellow senior Zach Graham has consistently scored alongside Warren and is the only other player who is averaging double figures. Against Alabama, Warren was limited to just two made shots from the field and while he ended up scoring 15 points, the lack of help he got against the Crimson Tide prevented the Rebels from even being close until the second half.
