Ole Miss-Missouri Prediction

Ole Miss is probably still going to make the NCAA Tournament, but the Rebels have seen other bubble teams fail to close the door in recent days. Florida failed to win at home against Georgia. North Carolina State lost at home to Georgia Tech. Ohio State got blasted by Northwestern. Florida, North Carolina State, and Ohio State might all get in, but they have added stress to their current situations and very likely need to win at least one more game to go to the Big Show. If Ole Miss should lose at Missouri, the Rebels – probably a 9 seed right now in a lot of bracketology estimations – would fall at least one seed line and possibly two. If you are on the 11-seed line, you are clearly not a lock and probably need to win one game at the SEC Tournament to be safe. Ole Miss must win. It will. Ole Miss 75, Missouri 64. (Matt Zemek)
