Mississippi State vs. Ole Miss Basketball: Egg Ball game time, TV info, and preview for MSU's 2014 SEC home opener

Mississippi State fought hard with the Kentucky Wildcats Wednesday night, but a second half slide to the talented cats proved to much. Can the Bulldogs grab their first SEC win of the 2013-14 season Saturday against rival Ole Miss at home?

The Mississippi State Bulldogs (10-4) and Ole Miss Rebels (10-4) meet in MSU's home opener Saturday afternoon in Humphrey Coliseum, and for the first time on the hardwood since March 2, 2013.  The last time out for these two teams, Mississippi State 13 game SEC losing streak with an emotional 73-67 win at home over the Rebels.

MSU has won four straight games against Ole Miss at The Hump, and 14 out of the last 15.  They hope to continue that string of successes as they welcome in the Rebels on Saturday afternoon.

Opponent Info: Ole Miss will come into the game without their most notable player, Marshall Henderson, who is serving a suspension for offseason actions.  Without Henderson, Ole Miss picked up a three point victory over Auburn Thursday night to open SEC play.

Even without Henderson, Ole Miss still have several scoring threats ready to take the floor against Mississippi State. Jarvis Summers (17.5) and Derrick Millinghaus (10.9) lead the Rebels in scoring, and the duo have helped others make baskets as the team's leading duo in the assist category as well.
