The NCAA Tournament we’ve longed for since the last time Ole Miss was in the NCAA Tournament is upon us.
The Rebs and Sooners tip off at 11:40 on TruTv.
Jim Nantz and the CBS Final Four crew will have the call.
This is big time basketball and Ole Miss is centerstage…at least for an hour or two. For many of us, that means it’s already been a successful season, but it’s so hard to get here I’d really like to stay a while.
The Rebels had a long break since losing to Alabama in the first round of the SEC Tournament. Hopefully, Kermit Davis used that free time to rekindle the fire that Ole Miss had during that 10-game winning streak that stretched from late November into early January. Back then the Rebels were playing with a lot of discipline, moving the ball around beautifully, slashing to the basket and drawing fouls. That’s what beat Mississippi State and Auburn. That’s what it will take to advance in this Tournament.
Davis is the SEC Coach of the Year. Let’s see what he can do with a full week on his hands.
Tyree and Terence Davis have immense talent. If Kermit has them coached up, we might get more March Madness. Survive and advance.
Well, it’s here. Ole Miss – Oklahoma in the 1st Rd of the NCAA Tournament. Selfishly, I want to win today to keep the fun going through Sunday. Just remember, there’s only 1 champion at the end of this thing. Everybody else ends up like this kid. pic.twitter.com/E8HTJuYL9c
