Admiral Schofield led the way with 27 points on 11-of-22 shooting including 3-of-7 from 3-point range plus 2-of-2 at the charity stripe. He also pulled down nine rebounds. Grant Williams contributed 18 points, nine boards and three assists. Jordan Bone added 13 points, three caroms and three steals.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Tennessee

The Volunteers are 17-7 ATS in their last 24 road games. Tennessee is 0-3-1 ATS in its last four Wednesday games.

Mississippi

The Rebels are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games overall. Ole Miss is 6-1 ATS in its last seven Wednesday games.

Prediction:

The Volunteers have the second-ranked offensive in terms of adjusted efficiency nationally, while Ole Miss is only 55th in defense. I don't believe the Rebels will be able to get enough stops here, especially considering Tennessee is going to come in with a lot of focus following the difficult loss over the weekend. The Vols have a veteran core that should be able to rise to the occasion tonight.
