REBEL GAME NOTES

REBELS TO FACE ALASKA-FAIRBANKS IN CONSOLATION BRACKET ACTION ON SATURDAY: Ole Miss (0-1) will face host Alaska-Fairbanks (0-1) in the consolation semifinals of the BP Top of the World Classic on Saturday, Nov. 17. Game time is 9:00 p.m. (CT). The Rebels dropped a narrow 82-78 overtime decision to Bowling Green in the first round on Thursday. The Nanooks fell to Washington 82-70 on Thursday.

THE OLE MISS-ALASKA-FAIRBANKS SERIES: The Rebels and Nanooks will meet on the hardwood for the first time on Saturday.

OLE MISS VERSUS FIRST TIME FOES: Ole Miss will face its first first-time opponent when the Rebels meet Alaska-Fairbanks on Saturday. Last year, the Rebels had a 3-1 record against first-time opponents, defeating Kansas State (60-46), No. 13-ranked Southern Cal (84-83, ot) and Morris Brown (94-59), and falling to Iowa State (73-68). Since the 1998-99 season, Ole Miss has a 10-3 record versus first-time foes.

FIRST TIME SINCE...: Ole Miss lost to Bowling Green 82-78 in overtime in the first round of the BP Top of the World Classic on Thursday. It was the first time the Rebels opened a season with an overtime contest since the 1995-96 campaign. In that season, Ole Miss fell to Davidson 84-83 in overtime at Tad Smith Coliseum on Nov. 27, 1995. That setback to Davidson in 1995-96 was also the last time the Rebels dropped their season opener.

REBELS IN OVERTIME: With its overtime setback to Bowling Green on Thursday, Ole Miss now has an overtime record of 33-32 since 1929. Under head coach Rod Barnes, the Rebels are 3-2 in overtime games.

BARNES IN FOURTH SEASON AS REBEL MENTOR: Rod Barnes is in his fourth season at the helm of the Ole Miss Rebel basketball program. The 2001 Naismith and CollegeInsider.com National Coach of the Year, Barnes has compiled a 66-36 record (includes 2001-02 games). Last year, Barnes, the 2001 Southeastern Conference Coach of the Year, guided Ole Miss to a school-record 27 wins (27-8 record) and the program's first trip to the NCAA Tournament Sweet Sixteen. The winning season and postseason tournament berth both were the fifth-straight for the Ole Miss program.

REED SETS NEW CAREER HIGH IN SCORING: Sophomore forward Justin Reed (Jackson, Miss.) recorded a career-high 26 points in the Rebels' setback to Bowling Green on Thursday. Reed's previous career best was 21 points in two games (one vs. Georgia, one vs. Auburn) last year. The preseason Wooden Award candidate hit a career-best eight free throws, and tied a career high with nine field goals. Reed's eight charity stripe tosses bettered his five free throws made vs. Vanderbilt, Tennessee and LSU last season. He also hit nine field goals last year against Georgia and Auburn.

HARPER TIES CAREER HIGH IN REBOUNDING: Sophomore forward/guard Aaron Harper (Jackson, Miss.) tied a career high with six boards against Bowling Green on Thursday. Harper grabbed six rebounds in the loss, tying his six-board contest vs. Arkansas-Pine Bluff last year.

ALLEN GETS FIRST CAREER START: Redshirt junior Derrick Allen (Gadsden, Ala.) received the first starting nod of his career vs. Bowling Green on Thursday. The 6-foot-8 forward had two points and three rebounds in 25 minutes of action. Last year, Allen was redshirted after transferring to Ole Miss from Southern Union State (Ala.) Community College.

HARRISON ON THE CHARTS: In the Rebels' game vs. Bowling Green, senior Jason Harrison (Little Rock, Ark.) continued his climb up the Ole Miss career charts. The following shows where the 5-foot-5 guard stands:
