COMPLETE SCHEDULE

OXFORD, Miss. – A trip to Hawaii to take part in the Jack in the Box Rainbow Wahine Classic and 16 home games, including dates with Tennessee, LSU and Texas A&,M highlight the Ole Miss women’s basketball schedule released by head coach Matt Insell Tuesday (Aug. 27).

"I am very excited about our upcoming season and the Lady Rebel basketball team that will represent our great university,” said Insell. “We've put together a challenging schedule --one that will allow us to play quality competition and prepare for our tough Southeastern Conference slate."

The Rebel’s schedule includes eight non-conference home dates and features a trip to the Big Island to take on West Virginia, Hawaii and Washington State in the Rainbow Wahine Classic hosted by the University of Hawaii. Also on the non-conference schedule is a trip to 2012 National Champion, Baylor, in December.

Ole Miss kicks off the Matt Insell era on Nov. 8 by hosting Jacksonville State. The Rebels will close the opening week of action by hosting Central Arkansas on Nov. 10

The Rebels will take to the Big Island Nov. 15-17 for the Rainbow Wahine Classic. This will be the fourth time the women’s basketball team has participated in the Rainbow Wahine Classic. The Rebels were last in the field in 2010-11 and placed third with wins over Gonzaga and Illinois.  Ole Miss will take on West Virginia (Nov. 15), host Hawaii (Nov. 16) and Washington State (Nov. 17).

"I'm really looking forward to our trip to Hawaii because it will give us a chance to see early in the season where we are at as a team,” said Insell. “We’ll take on three tough teams in West Virginia, Washington State and Hawaii."

The Rebels will return to the friendly-confines of Tad Coliseum for five of its next six games, a stretch which includes three games in six days. Ole Miss will host Southeastern Louisiana (Nov. 22), Tennessee State (Nov. 24) and Louisiana-Monroe (Nov. 26) before closing the month with a trip to New Orleans to take on Tulane (Nov. 30).

Ole Miss opens the month of December by hosting Louisiana Tech (Dec. 4) and Mississippi Valley State (Dec. 7) before traveling to South Alabama (Dec. 16) and Baylor (Dec. 18). The Rebels close the non-conference slate on Dec. 30 when Austin Peay makes the trip to Oxford.

"Louisiana Tech is a program with a lot of history and we’re glad to have them coming to Oxford,” said Insell.  “I expect that to be a very entertaining game between two of the most storied programs in the history of women's basketball. Having a chance to play Baylor is a great opportunity for our program. I’m very excited about playing them and seeing where we stand as a team before heading into Southeastern Conference play." 

Ole Miss will play three home-and-home games, five home games and five road games as a part of the 16-game SEC slate. The Rebels open the league slate on Jan. 2 when the Missouri Tigers make the trip to Oxford

Ole Miss will hit the road for three of its next four games, starting with a trip to Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville to take on the Tennessee Volunteers on Jan. 9. Ole Miss will also play at Alabama (Jan. 12) and at Arkansas (Jan.19). The lone home game in that stretch is against Vanderbilt (Jan. 16).

The Rebels return home to take on in-state rival, Mississippi State (Jan. 23) and LSU (Jan. 26) before closing the month of January at South Carolina (Jan. 30).

Florida (Feb. 2) and Tennessee (Feb. 6) make the trip to the Tad Pad to open the month of February before Ole Miss hits the road with trips to Georgia (Feb. 9) and Kentucky (Feb. 13). Texas A&M comes to Oxford before the Rebels make back-to-back road trips to Mississippi State (Feb. 23) and Missouri (Feb. 27). Ole Miss closes the regular-season slate against Auburn (March 2).

"The Southeastern conference is the best conference in collegiate women's basketball. Every night is a challenge and we are looking forward to the challenge," said Insell.

The 2014 SEC Tournament will be held March 5-9 at the Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Ga. The Rebels will be tipping off an hour earlier than normal for its weekday home games, debuting a 6 p.m. start time in 2013-14. The remainder of the game times as well as television will be announced at a later date. All times are subject to change.
