Starting Five
1. Ole Miss dropped a 77-65 contest to No. 8/8 Tennessee at the Tad Smith Coliseum on Thursday (Feb. 6). The Rebels drop to 10-14, 1-9 in SEC action and have dropped their last four games after defeating Mississippi State in thrilling overtime fashion on Jan. 23.

2. Junior Tia Faleru posted her second consecutive double-double with 23 points and 11 rebounds against the Lady Vols. It was Faleru's second consecutive double-double ad her 12th on the season. Faleru's 12 double-doubles are the most for an Ole Miss player since 2011-12 when Nikki Byrd had 12. Faleru is set to surpass that number this season.

3. Valencia McFarland also posted a double-double against the Lady Vols with 10 points and 10 assists. McFarland has posted five double-doubles on the season. Thursday's double-double was her first since she posted 27 points and 12 assists vs. Mississippi State (Jan. 23).

4. Freshman Shequila Joseph set a new career high with seven assists on Thursday. Joseph, the lone Ole Miss freshman to start each game, hasn't posted more than two assists prior to Thursday's contest vs. Tennessee.

5. Valencia McFarland was named to the 2014 Nancy Lieberman Award Watch List on Jan. 15. 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.

Ole Miss vs. Georgia Notables
-This will be the 42nd meeting between Ole Miss and Georgia with the Lady Bulldogs owning a 30-11 series advantage. Georgia has won the last four meetings between the teams and has a 15-1 record on its home floor. Ole Miss' only win at Georgia came during the 2009-10 season, when they defeated the Lady Bulldogs, 66-65.

-Ole Miss doesn't have any Georgia natives on its roster, but the Lady Bulldogs have two Mississippi natives in Tiaria Griffin who is from Monticello, Miss., and Krista Donald who hails from Lake, Miss.  

-Georgia head coach Andy Landers' son Drew is a senior at Ole Miss. Drew worked with the Ole Miss women's basketball team under former head coach Renee Ladner.  

A Win Would
-Snap Ole Miss' current four-game losing streak and its four-game slide to Georgia. The win would also be the first SEC road win for Ole Miss this season and just its second win in Athens.

A Loss Would
-Drop Ole Miss to 1-10 in SEC action and extend Georgia's current win streak to five straight over the Rebels. A loss would also keep Ole Miss winless in its last 10 SEC road games.

Scouting Georgia
Georgia enters Sunday's game with a week of rest after an 80-67 loss at Mississippi State on Sunday (Feb. 2). Shacobia Barbee leads the Georgia offense with 12.4 points per game. She is joined in double figures by Khaalidah Miller with 11.0 points per game and Tiaria Griffin who is contributing 10.4 points per game. Barbee leads the rebounding efforts as well with 7.9 rebounds per game. In fact, Barbee leads the Lady Bulldogs in points, rebounds, assists and steals. Georgia is averaging 66.8 points per game while holding opponent to just 57.0 points per game. Head Coach Andy Lander is in his 35th season at Georgia.

About Ole Miss
Ole Miss enters Sunday's contest with a 10-14, 1-9 SEC record after falling to No. 8/8 Tennessee 77-65 on Thursday (Feb. 6). Tia Faleru leads Ole Miss with 16.7 points per game and an SEC-leading 9.8 rebounds per game. Valencia McFarland is also in double figures with 16.0 points per game and a team-best 6.3 assists per game. Diara Moore is also adding 11.0 points per game. Faleru is averaging nearly a double-double and for the season has an SEC-leading 12 double-doubles - the most for a Rebel since the 2011-12 season.  The Rebels are averaging 73.9 points and 41.6 rebounds.
