Ole Miss center Shakira Austin is pacing the Rebels with 17.3 points per game this season.

The Ole Miss women’s basketball team is back in action tonight at 6 against No. 20 Tennessee in Knoxville.

The Lady Vols have won the last four in a series they lead 48-8.

The Lady Vols held Kentucky to season-lows for points and shooting percentage (28.6), and 6-foot-2 forward Rennia Davis had 20 rebounds.
