The Rebels look to extend their win streak to six consecutive when they welcome Mississippi Valley to the Tad Smith Coliseum for a Saturday (Dec. 7) matinee. Tipoff is at 12 p.m.  Fans can follow the action with in-game tweets (@OleMissWBB) and also with live stats on OleMissSports.com.

Game 11: Ole Miss (6-4) vs. Mississippi Valley (1-6)
Date: December 7, 2013
Time: 12:00 p.m. (CT)
Location: Oxford, Miss. (Tad Smith Coliseum)
Series:
Ole Miss leads leads, 12-2
Streak: Ole Miss has won 6

Starting Five
1. Tia Faleru led a quartet of Rebels in double figures with a team-best 19 points in a 79-68 win over Louisiana Tech in the 11th Annual School Kids Game on Wednesday morning. Faleru posted her eighth game in double figures and it was the seventh time she has led the Rebels in scoring this season. The Alabama native is leading the team with 15.4 points per game and 9.8 rebounds per game.

2. The win over Louisiana Tech was Ole Miss' fifth consecutive win and fourth consecutive win on its home floor. Ole Miss' five wins is the most since they opened the season with five straight in 2012-13. The last time Ole Miss strung together more than five consecutive wins was in 2008-09 when they won seven straight.

3. Ole Miss defeated the Lady Techsters in front of 4.491 fans which was the third-highest attended women's basketball game at the Tad Pad. The Rebels set the Coliseum record for attendance with 5,870 fans for a game against Southeastern Louisiana in 2009. Each of the last two School Kids games have earned spots on the top 10 home crowds list.

4. Diara Moore, who tied her career-best with 25 points against Tulane, followed that with 13 points against Louisiana Tech. Her 13 points against LA Tech marked her fourth game in double-figures in Ole Miss' last five games. She is one of eight Rebels to score in double figures this season.

5.  McFarland would need to play in 27 more games to enter the top 10 on Ole Miss's career game played list.
