Ole Miss closes its three-game homestand on Tuesday when it welcomes the Warhawks from Louisiana-Monroe and the Sunbelt Conference to Oxford. The Rebels will play in the second game of a doubleheader with the men’s team. Tipoff will be at 5:30 p.m. or 30 minutes following the men’s game.  

Game 8: Ole Miss (3-4) vs. Louisiana-Monroe (2-2)
Date: November 26, 2013
Time: 5:30 p.m. (CT)
Location: Oxford, Miss. (Tad Smith Coliseum)
Series:
Ole Miss leads, 12-2
Streak: Ole Miss has won 10

Starting Five
1. Tia Faleru averaged a double-double with 18.5 points and 10.6 rebounds per game in Ole Miss’ contests last week against Southeastern Louisiana and Tennessee State. The junior has posted four double-doubles this season and has posted double-figure rebounds in five games and double-figure points in five games, for her efforts she picked up her first career SEC Co-Player of the Week honor.

2. Ole Miss closes its three-game homestand on Tuesday against Louisiana-Monroe. The Rebels own a 12-2 series advantage and have won the last 10 meeting between the teams dating back to the 1986-87 season. This will be the first meeting between the teams since the 1995-96 season.

3. With its 77-61 win over Tennessee State, Ole Miss picked up back-to-back victories for the first time this season. Over the span of the last four days, the Rebels have snapped a four-game losing streak and moved to 3-1 on their home floor.

4. Valencia McFarland posted her second consecutive game of 20+ points with a season-best 22 points against Tennessee State. McFarland has scored 20 or more points in 15 career games and prior to Friday’s game against Southeastern Louisiana, last scored 20 against Florida in 2012-13. She joins Tia Faleru as Rebels to have scored 20+ points this season.

5.  Valencia McFarland’s scoring streak is up to 94 consecutive games after dropping 22 points against Tennessee State. She also made her 85th consecutive start. The last time McFarland didn’t start or score was during her freshman season. McFarland would need to play in 30 more games to enter the top 10 on Ole Miss’s career game played list.

Ole Miss vs. Louisiana-Monroe Notables
-This will be the 14th meeting between, Ole Miss and Louisiana-Monroe and the first meeting since the 1995-96 season. The Rebels have a commanding 12-2 leads of the series and have won the last 10 meetings. Ironically, the first two meetings between the teams, back in the 70s, went to overtime with the Warhawks winning both contests.

-The Rebels and Warhawks have several opponents in common. Both teams have already faced Central Arkansas this season. Ole Miss dropped a 66-63 contest in Oxford, while Louisiana-Monroe fell in overtime to the Sugar Bears 63-56 on Nov. 23.  

- Louisiana-Monroe will be the first of two opponents from the Sunbelt for the Rebels this season. Ole Miss will also travel to Mobile, Ala., to take on South Alabama on Dec. 16. Prior to this season, Ole Miss last played a Sun Belt opponent in 2011-12 when they hosted South Alabama.  

A Win Would
-Give Ole Miss its third consecutive win and bring the Rebels record to .500. A victory would also move Ole Miss to 4-1 on its home court and to 42-14 against teams from the Sun Belt Conference.

A Loss Would
-Snap the Rebels two-game win streak and move Ole Miss to 4-2 at the Tad Smith Coliseum this season. It would also give the Warhawks their first win in the series in the last 10 tries and first since 1985.
