Game 10: Ole Miss (5-4) vs. Louisiana Tech (1-5)
Date: December 4, 2013
Time: 11:00 a.m. (CT)
Location: Oxford, Miss. (Tad Smith Coliseum)
Louisiana Tech leads, 5-1
Streak: Louisiana Tech has won 4

Starting Five
1. Diara Moore tied her career-high with 25 points in Ole Miss' win over Tulane. It is Moore's first 20-point outing this season and her second 20-point outing in her career. The Texas native scored 25 points in Ole Miss' 2012-13 season-opener. Moore's 25 point marks the fourth straight game a Rebel has scored 20 or more points.  

2. Tia Faleru picked up her fifth double-double of the season against the Waves with 17 points and a team-best 10 rebounds. Faleru's five double-doubles leads the SEC and ties her for No. 3 nationally. Faleru posted four double-doubles all of last season, a mark she has already surpassed within the first nine games of the season.  

3. Ole Miss extended its win streak to four consecutive games with its road win at Tulane. The win was the first true road win for the Rebels this season after dropping a contest to Hawai'i. Ole Miss' four consecutive wins is the most for the Rebels since the 2011-12 season, when they strung together five consecutive wins at one point.  

4. Gracie Frizzell has had the hot hand from long range as of late. In the last two outings, Frizzell is averaging 14.5 points and is shooting at a .500 percent clip (8-of-16) from long range. In both games, Frizzell has nailed four three-pointers - her season-best and one shy of her career-high

5.  Valencia McFarland's scoring streak is up to 96 consecutive games after she scored nine points against Tulane. McFarland also made her 86th consecutive start against the Green Waves. The last time McFarland didn't start or score was during her freshman season. McFarland would need to play in 28 more games to enter the top 10 on Ole Miss's career game played list.

Ole Miss vs. Louisiana Tech Notables
-This will be the seventh meeting between the two teams and will be the second consecutive season the squads have met.  The Lady Techsters hold a commanding 5-1 series lead after taking a 57-54 win over Ole Miss in Ruston last season. Ole Miss last defeated Louisiana Tech during the 1991-92 season.

-Louisiana Tech is the second consecutive Conference USA opponent for the Rebels. Ole Miss defeated Tulane in its last outing, also from Conference USA. The Rebels have a 52-21 record against teams from Conference USA and has played a C-USA team in each of the last two seasons.

- Ole Miss head coach Matt Insell is very familiar with the Lady Techsters as he served as their Director of Operations during the 2007-08 season.  

A Win Would
-Give the Rebels their fifth straight victory and give them their first win over Louisiana Tech since the 1991-92 season. It would also be the fourth consecutive win for the Rebels on their home court in 2013-14.

-Give Ole Miss its first win in the month of December and would be its first win on a Wednesday this season.

A Loss Would
-Snap the Rebels four-game win streak and give Ole Miss its first loss at home since dropping a 66-63 contest to Central Arkansas back on Nov. 10. It would also be the fifth straight in in the series for Louisiana Tech.
