ANALYSIS:

This is a play on the MISSISSIPPI REBELS for our CBB Thursday SEC Dominator. Mississippi opens up SEC Tournament play against Alabama on Thursday night from Nashville as a likely NCAA Tournament lock. Most projections have the Rebels as a No. 8 or No. 9 seed for the tournament, and a loss to Alabama likely can't do more than drop the Rebels a spot or two. Still, moving up is a possibility with a good tournament run and it begins here. Alabama meanwhile will need a couple wins to secure a berth to the big dance as the Tide are a projected bubble team heading into the SEC Tournament. The Tide beat the Rebels 74-53 in the only prior matchup in January, scoring 23 points off turnovers and corralling 20 offensive rebounds. It was one of the worst performances of the season for the Rebels but the postseason is different altogether. One big edge is at the free throw line where Mississippi is hitting 78.5 percent compared to just 66.9 percent for Alabama. 9* (742) Mississippi Rebels
