OXFORD, Miss. - Defending Southeastern Conference champion Ole Miss finalized its 2013-14 hoops schedule Tuesday with the release of the SEC slate of games by the league office.

Ole Miss will play five home-and-home games, four home games and four road games as part of the 18-game league schedule. The Rebels' five home-and-home opponents this season are Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Vanderbilt, with all 18 league games televised as part of the SEC's television contract with ESPN.

The Rebels will open conference play at home versus Auburn on Jan. 9 (ESPN/2), which marks just the fourth time in 16 years Ole Miss has opened SEC action at home. Ole Miss hits the road for a battle against in-state foe Mississippi State on Jan. 11 (ESPNU) before returning home to host LSU (Jan. 15, CSS). Back-to-back road games at South Carolina (Jan. 18, FSN) and Vanderbilt (Jan. 22, CSS) precede a home tilt versus Mississippi State (Jan. 25, SEC Network). The Rebels close out the month of January on the road at Tennessee (Jan. 29, SEC Network).

Ole Miss welcomes South Carolina (Feb. 1, SEC Network) to the Tad Pad to open the month of February before traveling to the Bluegrass State for a road contest at Kentucky (Feb. 6, ESPNU). The Rebels host Missouri (Feb. 8, FSN) before back-to-back road games at Alabama (Feb. 11, ESPNU) and Georgia (Feb. 15, FSN).  Ole Miss returns home for three-straight games to face Kentucky (Feb. 18, ESPN), Florida (Feb. 22, CBS) and Alabama (Feb. 26, ESPN3) to end the month.

The Rebels begin March with back-to-back road games at Texas A&M (March 1, FSN) and Arkansas (March 5, ESPN3), before hosting Vanderbilt (March 8, SEC Network) in the regular-season finale. The SEC Basketball Tournament will be played March 12-16 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. The semifinals and championship game will be broadcast on ESPN on ABC, while the SEC Network will televise the tournament games Wednesday and Thursday in addition to the Friday night games. ESPNU will televise the two afternoon games Friday at the tournament this year.

Ole Miss' non-conference slate is highlighted by a home game versus reigning Pac-12 Tournament champion Oregon (Dec. 8, ESPNU). The Ducks, which won 28 games last season and advanced to the NCAA Tournament Sweet Sixteen, will host the Rebels in a return game next season.

The Rebels also hit the road for games against NCAA Tournament participants Kansas State and Western Kentucky. Ole Miss travels to face the Wildcats in the Big 12/SEC Challenge on Dec. 5 in Manhattan, Kan., and heads to Bowling Green, Ky., to take on the Hilltoppers on Dec. 30. Middle Tennessee, who won 28 games last season and advanced to the NCAA First Four, will travel to Oxford on Dec. 14.

Ole Miss opens the non-conference slate with a home game versus Troy (Nov. 8) before traveling to Coastal Carolina (Nov. 16). The Rebels then host back-to-back games against Mississippi Valley State (Nov. 22) and North Carolina AT&T (Nov. 26) as part of the Barclays Center Classic.

The Rebels travel to Brooklyn, N.Y., on Nov. 29 for the Barclays Center Classic and a matchup against Georgia Tech on the Brooklyn Nets' home floor. A possible matchup against NIT participant St. John's or Big Ten foe Penn State awaits Ole Miss in the finals on Nov. 30.

Ole Miss will also host Louisiana-Monroe (Dec. 18) and Mercer, who knocked off Tennessee in the NIT last season, on Dec. 22. The Rebels round out the non-conference portion of their schedule by hosting the Dayton Flyers (Jan. 4).
