The Ole Miss Rebels and the Syracuse Orange will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Carrier Dome.

ABOUT OLE MISS (21-13): Saiz averages 15.1 points and 11.2 rebounds and is a good foul shooter (74.2 percent), as are virtually all of his teammates. Deandre Burnett shoots 88.1 percent from the line and leads the squad in scoring (16.7 points), assists (three) and made 3-pointers (67). That said, Burnett shoots only 35.6 percent, although he is coming off three straight solid outings over which he has knocked down 10-of-18 3-pointers.

ABOUT SYRACUSE (19-14): The Orange have four players who average at least 30 minutes per game and rarely go to more than two reserves, so they cannot afford to get into foul trouble against the Rebels. White has scored 40, 22 and 34 points in his last three contests and has committed only one turnover in 119 minutes over that stretch. Tyler Lydon delivered 13 points and 10 rebounds versus Greensboro and has made 21-of-21 free throws over his last five games.

Oddsmakers currently have the Orange listed as 7-point favorites versus the Rebels, while the game’s total is sitting at 158½.

Syracuse took care of business in its opening game of the NIT and will look to post another victory Saturday morning, when Ole Miss visits the Carrier Dome. The Orange are the top seed in their bracket and won their opener by 13 points over UNC Greensboro, while the fifth-seeded Rebels were victorious at Monmouth in their first contest.

This is the first meeting between the schools, who vary in several notable ways – aside from wishing they were in the NCAA Tournament. Ole Miss ranks 19th in the nation in rebounding while Syracuse is 234th, and the Rebels lead the country in free throws made and attempted while the Orange are more of a guard-oriented team. Ole Miss forward Sebastian Saiz recorded his school-record 21st double-double in the eight-point road win at Monmouth and could be a load for Syracuse’s 2-3 zone. The Orange topped UNC Greensboro behind Andrew White III, who scored 34 points and set the school record for 3-pointers in a season.

Syracuse was a 90-77 winner in their most recent outing at home against Spartans. They covered the -12-point spread as favorites.

In their last action, Mississippi was a 91-83 winner on the road against Hawks. They covered the +1-point spread as underdogs.
