Murray State has a solid brand for a team from the Ohio Valley Conference.
Ole Miss is from the bigger conference but that doesn’t always mean something. They are hardly elite.
This is a mid week game without a lot of fanfare and it feels like it could be a trap for the Rebels, possibly.
Murray State Racers
The Racers are the favourite in the OVC West heading into the season. Nothing has happened yet to make us think otherwise.
Like I said in the intro the Racers have some cred, enough to lure in transfers like Jonathan Stark from Tulane. He averaged 10ppg his last season with the Green Wave but this year he is averaging 20ppg.
The Racers always emphasize guard play and they have another transfer they are getting good mileage from in former Longhorn Damarcus Croaker.
Throw in senior Bryce Jones and you have three guards contributing 45ppg. That is a pretty solid base to build from.
Murray State has a classic small conference big in Terrell Miller. He is only 6’8″ but at 250 he can carve out some space and get on the boards.
The Racers will try and play as much as possible in transition to negate their disadvantages. They have not played major competition yet this season.
Ole Miss Rebels
Ole Miss is expected to be right in the middle of the SEC this season. The program is solid but does not have the upside they have had in past seasons.
The Rebels have a good inside outside combo in Deandre Burnett and Sebastian Saiz. Burnett averages 20ppg and Saiz is averaging a double-double with 14ppg and 11rpg.
He is a power player and it feels like he has been on campus forever. His numbers go up every season.
Transfer Cullen Neal proved he could play at New Mexico. He is a pretty good third option and as the son of a coach he knows how to fit his game to others.
Ole Miss should get the win here, This is a veteran group and Saiz should give the Racers some problems inside.

Free Murray State Racers vs. Ole Miss Rebels NCAAB Prediction:
Murray State has some weapons and will definitely be able to put some points on the board.
Ole Miss should be able to put the Racers away eventually. I think they will own the glass putting a lot of pressure on Murray State.
