Davis, Ole Miss agree to new deal after surprising success

Exactly one year after being publicly introduced at The Pavilion as the new leader of the Ole Miss men's basketball program, head coach Kermit Davis has agreed in principle to a new four-year contract.

The Rebs are back in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2015 as a number 8 seed in the south region. The No.8 Rebels (20-12) will open the NCAA Tourney in the South Region when they face No.9 seed Oklahoma (19-13) this Friday in Columbia, South Carolina. Ole Miss and Oklahoma have met three times throughout history, with the Rebels winning two of the matchups from 1999-2001.

The Sooners will be looking for their first NCAA Tournament win since a 2016 trip to the Final Four. The eight-win improvement is ranked 11th in the nation as well as the best among Power 5 schools. Congrats to our student-athletes and coaches for making the NCAA Tournament.

Ole Miss was picked to finish last in the Southeastern Conference this season, but the 59-year-old Davis helped the program far exceed those expectations. This is the third team he has reached the NCAAs with. "And two guys that really love Ole Miss, and so that was really fun to see".

Should the Sooners prevail in their first round game they would likely draw No. 1-seeded Virginia in the second round. However, with no single playmaker, the Rebels don't have a player averaging more than 4.0 assists per game. It still leads up to preparation for that game. We get an extra day on Friday, so we'll go really, really light on Monday. "We play our hardest, come out with some victories".
