Ole Miss basketball released a promo video Wednesday, and although football season is in full swing, it’s easy to see why the folks in Oxford are ready for Rebel hoops.
Ole Miss is coming off its second NCAA Tournament appearance in the past three years, and the Rebels have high hopes entering the 2015-16 season. Ole Miss is also moving into a new building this season, as they open The Pavilion at Ole Miss on Jan. 7 against Alabama.
CBS Sports ranked all 351 Division I basketball programs Tuesday, and they have the Rebels’ ranked No. 68 overall, the seventh-highest ranking in the SEC.
Most of the preseason hype for Ole Miss is because of senior guard Stefan Moody’s presence in the Rebel backcourt. Moody, who averaged 16.6 points per game last season, was ranked the 45th best player in country by CBS Sports.
Less than one month out from the season opener! ARE YOU READY? https://t.co/KYX9vkivUD
