Ole Miss is set to begin play in the 2019 SEC Tournament on Thursday against Alabama. The Rebels will step on the court as the league’s No. 7 seed needing a victory over No. 10 Alabama to advance to Friday’s quarterfinals stage.
Two days after head coach Kermit Davis was named SEC Coach of the Year, Ole Miss is being viewed by many as a potential spoiler in the tournament. Davis may be new to the SEC but he is by no means new to tournament play and what it takes to succeed in the do-or-die format of the postseason.
The Rebels have been playing really well down the stretch and even in losses to Tennessee and Kentucky, had opportunities to win those games down the stretch. Looking ahead to the matchup against Alabama, the folks in Oxford are fired up for tip-off and have released a new hype video to get the fan base psyched up for the upcoming game against the Crimson Tide.
With Alabama sputtering down the stretch, there’s a good chance Ole Miss takes care of business on Thursday in order to advance in the tournament.
If you are struggling to wait and looking ahead to the Alabama game, this hype video should hold you over until the action arrives:
