Current Records: Boise State 2-2; Ole Miss 3-1
What to Know
The Ole Miss Rebels will take on the Boise State Broncos at 1 p.m. ET Sunday at TD Arena. Both teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.
The Rebels didn’t have too much trouble with the Elon Phoenix this past Friday as they won 74-56. The top scorers for Ole Miss were guard Jarkel Joiner (16 points) and forward Jaemyn Brakefield (16 points).
Meanwhile, Boise State took their game against the Temple Owls this past Friday by a conclusive 82-62 score. Boise State can attribute much of their success to forward Abu Kigab, who had 13 points and six assists along with five rebounds, and guard Emmanuel Akot, who had 16 points and six assists. Kigab had some trouble finding his footing against the St. Bonaventure Bonnies this past Thursday, so this was a step in the right direction. Kigab’s points were the most he has had all season.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Ole Miss is expected to win a tight contest. They covered a 10.5-point spread this past Friday, so bettors might be thinking that will translate to further success against a lower spread.
Ole Miss is now 3-1 while the Broncos sit at 2-2. The Rebels are 1-1 after wins this year, Boise State 0-1.
