I'm thinking this one will be closer as well. Not sure what my prediction will be yet.
Depends how well we defend the leading scorer in the SEC. If we defend, we have a chance. If we don't then we don't.
It depends on the refs calling fouls on the moving screens that Mississippi sets.
Is stein gonna be back?
