OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss men’s and women’s basketball teams will partner with the City of Oxford to host the third annual Trustmark Square Jam on the Oxford Square on Friday, Oct. 17 beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Square Jam will begin after the Ole Miss Homecoming parade ends at 6:15 on the Square. The parade begins at 5:30 p.m. in The Grove.

The Rebels will showcase their skills on a basketball court with lights set up on the east side of the Square in the parking lot in front of City Hall.  Fans will get to see the teams participate in skill competitions, a three-point shooting contest and other surprises. In addition, both teams will be signing autographs after the event. Joining the Rebels as guest judges will be SEC Nation’s Marcus Spears and Kaylee Hartung. SEC Nation will be in Oxford broadcasting from The Grove prior to Saturday’s football game against Tennessee.

Square Jam is in its third year and continues to get better each year. Last year, the Ole Miss hoops squads entertained the crowd with a combined three-point shootout and a game of basketball knockout. The women’s team performed a choreographed dance, while the men’s team had a slam dunk contest. The evening closed with both teams signing autographs and meeting with fans.

“We are very excited about the upcoming basketball season, and this event will serve as a great jump off for the year,” said head men’s coach Andy Kennedy.” I hope all the Rebel fans will come out to support our team.”

Women’s head coach Matt Insell is also looking forward to the start of the 2014-15 season.

“We’re certainly excited about the upcoming basketball season,” said Insell. “Square Jam is always a fun time for our players to interact with fans during Homecoming festivities. We’re looking forward to another successful event on Friday night.” 

The men and women’s team open the 2014-15 regular season on Nov. 14. The women’s team will host Grambling in its annual School Kids Game at 11 a.m. at Tad Smith Coliseum while the men’s team will kick off its season at 6 p.m. against Charleston Southern.  For ticket information go to OleMissTix.com or call the Ole Miss Ticket Office at 1-888-REB-TKTS (732-8587).
