Alabama Basketball is on the road Wednesday night to take on the Ole Miss Rebels. The Crimson Tide is coming off two straight disappointing losses and must win in Oxford.
Ole Miss is 12-11 and 3-7 in SEC play. In their most recent game, they lost to Florida in OT in Gainesville. The Rebels have wins over Memphis, Mississippi State, Florida, Kansas State, and LSU. The game is not one in which the Crimson Tide can afford to play down to the competition.
Alabama sits at 14-9 and 4-6 in SEC play. The latest NCAA NET rankings have the Tide at No. 24. Ole Miss is ranked No. 104 in the NCAA NET rankings.
In SEC play, the Crimson Tide is last in the SEC in three-point, shooting percentage at 26.5 percent. During the entire season, among the 358 Division One basketball programs, the Tide is No. 324 at making shots outside the arc.

Alabama vs. Ole Miss Prediction
Ken Pomeroy rates the teams more highly than their NET ranking. KenPom has the Crimson Tide at No. 18 and Ole Miss at No. 102.
Alabama has had historical success in Oxford, with Ole Miss leading the series at home just 43-40, but the Crimson Tide has lost to less talented Ole Miss teams in Oxford before. Alabama, like most SEC teams, is always vulnerable playing in an SEC road game. Being in a must-win situation for SEC and NCAA Tournament seeding should provide the Tide with enough motivation for intensity throughout the game.
Game Prediction: Alabama Crimson Tide 76 – Ole Miss 70
