Greetings tonight’s followers.

The Bulls enter tonight’s game after an 88-81 defeat of Florida Gulf Coast. The Rebels made things a bit easier, pounding Murray State 87-49.

The interesting story line for USF last game was the size advantage. The Bulls beat FGCU considerably on the inside in rebounding and point in the paint. Tonight? Don’t expect it to be as easy.

Ole Miss has four players over 6-foot-3, including senior Shawn Goff, who averages 13.7 ppg and 6.6 rpg.

If you remember from last game, USF’s first-team all-Big East guard Shantia Grace had a tough time getting involved on offense, scoring just eight points in 40 minutes played. It was freshman Jasmine Wynne, however, who made up for it, scoring a season-high 26 points.

There’s really not much of a comparison when it comes to the resume. USF holds a 23-10 record while Ole Miss is 18-14, finishing tied for ninth in the SEC.

In the regular season the Rebels defeated UCF, No. 18 Vanderbilt an lost two games to No. 6 Auburn by less than eight points.

OK, I’m goin back to Twitter for the game. Thanks for joining us.
