They are also very slow paced teams which will lead to very few possessions in this game. They met earlier this year and the final score was 64-46 in favor of Ole Miss so just 110 total points. This one sets up for a similar type final score as far as total points go. These 2 rivals both rank in the top 5 in the SEC in defensive efficiency. On the other end of the court, they rank 13th and 11th (out of 14 SEC teams) in conference offensive efficiency. They also rank 12th and 13th in pace of play in SEC games. There won’t be many shots in this game and unless they shoot very well, this one doesn’t get into the 130’s. Neither team shoots many 3-pointers as they rank 13th & 14th in the SEC in percentage of points coming from deep. On top of that both teams are better at defending inside the arc which matched up perfectly with each offense.
