Starting Five
1. The Rebels dropped a 93-79 road contest at Alabama in its last outing on Sunday (Jan. 12). The loss was the third straight to the Crimson Tide and dropped Ole Miss to 0-3 in SEC action. The loss also extended Ole Miss' SEC losing streak to eight games dating back to the 2013-14 season.

2. Valencia McFarland was named to the 2014 Nancy Lieberman Award Watch List on Wednesday. The award is given to the nation's top point guard. McFarland is one of 29 players on the Watch List and joins Arkansas' Calli Berna, Tennessee's Ariel Massengale and Texas A&M's Jordan Jones.

3. Tia Faleru picked up her SEC leading ninth double-double against Alabama with 27 points and 10 rebounds. Faleru, who leads the Rebels in scoring with 16.2 points per game and rebounding with 9.9 rebounds per game, has posted a double-double in four of her last six games.

4. Ole Miss moved to 9-4 when scoring at least 70 points. The Rebels have reached the 70-point mark on 13 occasions this season and have scored 70+ points in each of the last 12 games. The last game Ole Miss failed to reach 70 points in was in a 79-65 loss at Washington State at the Rainbow Wahine Classic.

5. With her 27 points against Alabama, Tia Faleru picked up her 4th 20-point game of the season. She is one of four Rebels to top the 20-point mark this season. Her 27 points also gives the Rebels a 20-point score in five of their last six games.

Ole Miss vs. Vanderbilt Notables
-This will be the 43rd meeting between Ole Miss and Vanderbilt. The Commodores own a 27-15 series advantage and enter Thursday's game as winners of the last four. The Rebels do own a 12-7 mark at the Tad Smith Coliseum and in their last win over Vanderbilt at home rallied from a 16 point halftime deficit to win, 72-67.

-Thursday's game will bring Vanderbilt assistant coach Kim Rosamond back home to her alma mater. Rosamond played at Ole Miss from 1995-98 and was a sharpshooter in her day. Her name is still in the record books as her six triples against UT-Pan American still ranks at No. 12 on the single-game list.

-Ole Miss doesn't have any players from Tennessee and Vanderbilt doesn't' have any Mississippi natives but head coach Matt Insell and assistant coach Alex Simmons are both Tennessee natives, hailing from Shelbyville.

A Win Would
-Snap the Rebels current three-game losing streak and its eight-game SEC losing streak. The win would also give Ole Miss its first SEC victory of the season.

A Loss Would
-Move the Rebels to 0-4 in SEC action and give Vanderbilt its fifth consecutive win in the series.
