Game 6: Ole Miss (1-4) vs. Southeastern Louisiana (1-3)
Date: November 22, 2013
Time: 5 p.m. (CT)
Location: Oxford, Miss. (Tad Smith Coliseum)
Series:
Ole Miss leads, 15-0
Streak: Ole Miss has won 15

Starting Five
1. Ole Miss is back at the Tad Pad for its next three games, its longest homestand of the season. The Rebels will take on Southeastern Louisiana (Nov. 22), Tennessee State (Nov. 24) and Louisiana-Monroe (Nov. 26). The Rebels will also be playing on a short turnaround with three games in the next five days. Counting the Rainbow Wahine Classic, Ole Miss will have played six games in the last 12 days.  

2. The Rebels are looking to snap their current four-game losing streak when they take on the Tigers. Last season, Ole Miss dropped five straight to close the season, a streak that was snapped with the season-opening win over Jacksonville State.    

3. Tia Faleru had a career night in Ole Miss' game against Washington State. The junior posted a career-high 29 points and 16 rebounds against the Cougars. Faleru's 29 points was the first 20-point game of the season for the Rebels and the first since Valencia McFarland scored 24 against Florida last season.  

4.  Valencia McFarland's scoring streak is up to 92 consecutive games after she scored in each game of the Rainbow Wahine Classic. She also started in 93 career game, including 83 consecutive games.  The last time McFarland didn't score or start was during her freshman season.

5. For her efforts throughout the week, Valencia McFarland was named to the Bank of Hawai'i Rainbow Wahine Classic All-Tournament team. McFarland has been named to the All-Tournament team of every tournament she has ever played in during her Ole Miss career.
