Starting Five
1. Ole Miss' upset bid over No. 24/25 Vanderbilt fell just short in an 80-74 loss on Thursday (Jan 16). The loss was Ole Miss' fifth straight to the Commodores and dropped Ole Miss to 0-4 in SEC action. The Rebels also dropped their third game to a ranked opponent and extended their SEC winless streak to nine games, dating back to the 2012-13 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. McFarland scored a career-best 28 points against Vanderbilt. It was her sixth 20-point game of the season and her 19th career. Prior to the Vanderbilt game, McFarland's career-high was 25 a mark she reached against Alabama during the 2011-12 season.

4. Tia Faleru added 20 points against Vanderbilt for her second consecutive game of 20+ points. Faleru has scored 20 or more points on five occasions. Combined with McFarland's 28 points, the Vanderbilt game marked the second time Ole Miss has had two 20-point scorers in a game, also reaching the mark against Baylor.  Ole Miss has had a player score 20+ in six of its last seven games.

5. Ole Miss shot a blistering 68.0 percent (17-of-25) in the first half against Vanderbilt. It was the best shooting percentage in the first half for the Rebels and was the second time they topped 60 percent in a half this season, also shooting better than 60 percent in the second half against Jacksonville State.

Ole Miss vs. Arkansas Notables
-This will be the 37th meeting between the teams. The Rebels own a 23-13 series lead, but have dropped the last five meetings between the teams. Ole Miss last defeated the Razorbacks during the 2011-12 season, a 69-65, win in Fayetteville.

-Sunday's game will get redshirt sophomore Gracie Frizzell back to her home state. Frizzell hails from Little Rock, Ark., and played her high school basketball at Central Arkansas Christian High School. Additionally, Ole Miss assistant coach Todd Schaefer spent the last two seasons on staff at Arkansas State.

-The Rebels and Razorbacks have a common opponent in Mississippi Valley State, a team that both teams defeated in non-conference action. Additionally, Arkansas took on Middle Tennessee State in non-conference action. The Raiders are coached by Rick Insell, the father of Ole Miss head coach Matt Insell.

A Win Would
-Snap the Rebels current four-game losing streak and its nine-game winless streak in SEC action.  The win would also give Ole Miss its first SEC victory of the season and its first SEC road victory in its last seven attempts.

A Loss Would
-Drop Ole Miss to 0-5 in SEC action and give the Razorbacks their sixth straight win in the series.  

Scouting Arkansas
Arkansas enters Sunday's game with a 14-4, 1-4 SEC record after dropping a 60-58 road contest at Georgia on Thursday night. The loss was the third straight for the Razorbacks and moved them to 1-2 in SEC road games. Arkansas has three players in double figures and is led by Jessica Jackson who is averaging 15.6 points per game. Keira Peak and McKenzie Adams are also in double figures with 10.7 and 10.6 points, respectively. Jackson also leads the rebounding efforts with 5.8 rebounds per game.  Junior point guard Calli Berna was named to the Lieberman Award watch Jan. 15 and is leading the SEC with 7.5 assists per game. Head Coach Tom Collen is in his seventh season at Arkansas.  

About Ole Miss
Ole Miss is coming off a 80-74 loss to No. 24/25 Vanderbilt on Thursday night. The loss was the fourth straight for the Rebels, but just the third loss at home for Ole Miss this season. Tia Faleru leads the Ole Miss offense with 16.4 points per game and 9.6 rebounds per game. Valencia McFarland and Diara Moore are also in double figures with 15.7 and 10.9 points, respectively. Danielle McCray is also providing a boost on the glass with 5.4 rebounds per game. McFarland joins Arkansas' Berna on the Lieberman Award watch list and is second in the league in assists, dishing out 6.2 assists per game. The Rebels are averaging 76.2 points per game and grabbing 43.7 rebounds per game.
