Live updates: Ole Miss looks to sweep Mississippi State basketball

·1 min read

STARKVILLE — It's time for a rematch between Mississippi State and Ole Miss basketball.

During the last meeting on Jan. 8, the Rebels came out on top, exploiting the Bulldogs' lack of forward Tolu Smith while Matthew Murrell rained 3-pointers as part of a career-high 31 points.

Both Mississippi State (12-5, 3-2 SEC) and Ole Miss (9-8, 1-4) are looking for a bounce-back performance on Saturday (3 p.m., ESPNU). The Bulldogs blew a late lead in a loss to Florida on Wednesday while the Rebels are mired in a three-game losing streak, most recently looking flat against Missouri.
