While Ole Miss didn’t go dancing last year, the Rebels have held strong in a tough conference this year. The Rebels finished 20-12 overall, third in the SEC with an 11-7 record, split a pair of games against Arkansas and took the nation’s top team, Kentucky, into overtime.

Ole Miss earned a bid to the tournament by being chosen by the selection committee and will face BYU in the round of 64.

BYU finished the season 25-9 overall and 13-5 in the West Coast Conference. The Cougars also finished runner-up in the WCC Tournament behind Gonzaga. The Cougars are dancing after receiving some selection committee love and being chosen to go to the dance.
