The Baylor Bears and the Mississippi Rebels will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at The Pavilion at Ole Miss.

ABOUT BAYLOR (19-1, 7-1 Big 12): The Bears have won straight since a 89-68 loss at West Virginia and their 19-1 start is their best through 20 games in the program’s 111-year history. Junior forward Johnathan Motley leads the team in both scoring (16.2 points per game) and rebounding (9.6) and has emerged as a candidate for national player of the year honors. Junior point guard Manu Lecomte, a transfer from Miami, is second in scoring (12.1) while averaging a team high 4.5 assists and junior guard Al Freeman (10.7) also is averaging in double figures and has connected on 31-of-80 3-pointers (38.8 percent).

ABOUT OLE MISS (12-8, 3-5 SEC): The Rebels come in off an 80-76 home loss to Texas A&M which snapped a two-game winning streak. Junior guard Deandre Burnett leads the team in scoring (17.7) and ranks fourth in the SEC in free throw shooting (88.1 percent) while sophomore guard Terence Davis (12.8 points) had a team-high 19 points, including a career-high five 3-pointers, in the loss to Texas A&M. Sebastian Saiz, a 6-9 senior forward, is second on the team in scoring (15.6) while also grabbing an SEC-leading 11.3 rebounds per game.

Oddsmakers currently have the Bears listed as 7-point favorites versus the Rebels, while the game’s total is sitting at 141.

Mississippi was a 80-76 loser in its last match at home against Aggies. They failed to cover the -1.5-point spread as favorites.

Baylor was a 65-61 winner in its last match at home against Red Raiders. They failed to cover the -8.5-point spread as favorites.

Big 12 Conference co-leader Baylor takes a break from league play when it travels to Ole Miss on Saturday. The contest is part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge, a competition that the Bears are 3-0 in with wins over Kentucky, Vanderbilt and Georgia.

Although the timing might not be the best for Baylor, which has a huge first place showdown with No. 1 ranked Kansas on deck next Wednesday, Bears coach Scott Drew is a fan of the Big 12/SEC Challenge. “We value the exposure it brings,” Drew said. “It’s a day when ESPN puts our conference front and center, all day and night.” An upset of Baylor would be a big one for Ole Miss and its NCAA Tournament at-large resume. “They’re an outstanding team and a legit Final Four contender,” Rebels coach Andy Kennedy said. “We’re just trying to manage games as best we can and give ourselves a chance to win.”
