Ole Miss to travel to Syracuse for second round of NIT

Ole Miss is headed to New York to face one of college basketball’s bluebloods.

The Rebels will travel to Syracuse to take on the top-seeded Orange in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament on Saturday. Tip from the Carrier Dome is set for 10 a.m. CT.

Syracuse (19-14) announced the date and time following its 90-77 first-round win over UNC Greensboro on Wednesday, a game that was postponed because of wintry weather in the Northeast.

Ole Miss (21-13) advanced with a 91-83 win at Monmouth on Tuesday.
