Game time is 2:00 p.m. (CT). The Rebels defeated Alaska-Fairbanks 75-58 in the consolation bracket semifinals on Saturday. Wichita State defeated Radford 82-81 on Saturday.

THE OLE MISS-WICHITA STATE SERIES: The Rebels and Shockers will meet for the fifth time on the hardwood Sunday. The series is tied at 2-2. Ole Miss won the last meeting, a 71-48 victory in Wichita, Kan., in the 1997-98 campaign (Dec. 13, 1997). The following are the series' scores:

Date             Result                            Site
Dec. 10, 1994    Wichita State 71, Ole Miss 70     Oxford, Miss.

Dec. 13, 1997    Ole Miss 71, Wichita State 48     Wichita, Kan.

LOVE THOSE NOVEMBER GAMES!!!: The Rebels love to play games in November and it shows in their record in contests played during that month. Since the 1990-91 campaign, Ole Miss has a 26-4 record (.867 winning percentage) in the month of November. Prior to Thursday's setback to Bowling Green, the Rebels had won 11 straight in the month of November, with the previous loss coming at then-No. 7 nationally-ranked Temple (68-52, Nov. 18, 1998).

OLE MISS VERSUS THE MISSOURI VALLEY CONFERENCE: The Rebels have a 6-7 record versus members of the Missouri Valley Conference. Ole Miss is 1-0 versus Indiana State and Southwest Missouri State, 2-2 versus Wichita State, 1-2 versus Bradley and Southern Illinois and 0-1 versus Illinois State. The last time the Rebels faced a member of the Missouri Valley Conference came during the 2000-01 campaign. Ole Miss defeated Southern Illinois 70-66 in the first round of the Yahoo! Sports Invitational in Hawaii last December. The Rebels have won their last four meetings against members of the Missouri Valley Conference, defeating Southern Illinois (2000-01), Southwest Missouri State (1999-2000) and Wichita State (1997-98, 1996-97).

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 67-36 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.

HARRISON ON THE CHARTS: In the Rebels' game vs. Alaska-Fairbanks, 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:

Games Played Points
1. Jason Flanigan (98-01) 127 1. John Stroud (77-80) 2,328
Jason Harrison (99-pres) 103 25. Denver Brackeen (54-55) 1,040
Jason Harrison (99-pres) 793

HOT-SHOOTING REBELS: Ole Miss was on target from the floor in its win over Alaska-Fairbanks - especially in the second half. The Rebels hit 57.4 percent for the game (27-of-47), including a blistering 77.8 percent (14-of-18) in the second half. After two games, Ole Miss is shooting 53.7 percent from the field. The Rebels are also on target from the foul line in their first two games. Ole Miss is shooting 82 percent (41-of-50) from the charity stripe.

ALLEN HAS BIG GAME VERSUS ALASKA-FAIRBANKS: After receiving his first start versus Bowling Green on Thursday, redshirt junior Derrick Allen (Gadsden, Ala.) stepped up big in the Rebels' win over Alaska-Fairbanks on Saturday. The 6-foot-8 forward had eight points (4-of-5 FG) and grabbed a career-high seven boards in the victory. Last year, Allen was redshirted after transferring to Ole Miss from Southern Union State (Ala.) Community College.

JOHNSON HAS SOLID PERFORMANCE VERSUS THE NANOOKS: Freshman Justin Johnson (Fayetteville, N.C.) had a good early-season showing in the Rebels' victory over Alaska-Fairbanks on Saturday. The 6-foot guard had nine points and three steals, with seven points and all three swipes coming in the second half. He recorded five points and two steals during the Rebels' 13-0 second-half spurt that increased a 50-42 advantage to a 63-42 lead.

KIRKLIN DOES IT AGAIN: He always seems to know when the Rebels need it the most. Junior Richard Kirklin (Pine Bluff, Ark.) has hit several three-pointers in his Ole Miss career, and most of those have come at crucial times for the Rebels. Well, he did it again in Ole Miss' victory over Alaska-Fairbanks on Saturday. With Alaska-Fairbanks closing the gap to eight at 50-42 with 9:54 left, the 6-foot-9 forward nailed a three-pointer at the 8:38 mark to not only give the Rebels a 53-42 lead, but also stop the Nanooks' momentum.
