The Ole Miss baseball team knew they had to stay in Hoover, Ala, for a few days this week to feel better when they host another regional NCAA baseball event next week.

The rebels should breathe a sigh of relief as a deep run in the SEC tournament virtually eliminated their chance of playing at least two more games at Oxford University Stadium this season.

With wins against Auburn in the individual elimination round on Tuesday and against Georgia in the elimination round on Thursday in the third round, the rebels put themselves in a position to end the weekend with another elimination game against Vanderbilt on Friday.

The Commodores defeated the rebels in the second round on Wednesday 5: 4 and scored a 2: 2 between the two teams in the season. After the first loss of the tournament around midnight on Thursday morning, Ole Miss turned around and defeated the Bulldogs 4-0 on the same day.

« I’m proud of the way our boys have done today after a heavy loss yesterday Showed up that evening and got back to the hotel late, but you have to do that in this tournament, « said Ole Miss head coach Mike Bianco after the Georgia win. « That was the message to the team (Thursday morning). »

The win on Thursday kept the rebels alive in the SEC tournament, but also kept them alive, potentially leading them to a top 8 spot in the NCAA Tournament to return. In both D1Baseball and Baseball America’s latest projections for the Field of 64, the Rebels are the No. 12 National Seed and paired with No. 5 National Seed Tennessee and Knoxville Regional in D1Baseballs projections and paired with No. 5 National Seed Notre Checkers and the South Bend Regional in America’s Baseball.

If you can make it by Friday, the Rebels must win to get to Sunday’s championship game. This could bolster their résumé, but depending on how the selection committee sees things, the rebels may not have to run a week in Hoover.

The state of Mississippi took the tournament number 2 2-0 and finished in two ruled mercifully from Florida and Tennessee for consecutive days. A win over Vanderbilt in Friday’s game would have Rebel # 12 (40-18) three wins over the country’s # 3 team and a chance to score a second win against Arkansas # 1 in Saturday’s semi-final game. A championship game against Tennessee No. 4 or Florida No. 13 would be waiting for the Rebels on Sunday.
