NCAA Tournament 2015: Xavier to play Ole Miss after Rebels win First Four matchup

One more tournament matchup has been set...

Welcome to March.

The Ole Miss Rebels have officially kicked the door down and made their way into The Big Dance with their stunning win over the BYU Cougars in Tuesday's nightcap edition of The First Four in Dayton, Ohio.

The Rebels were down 17 at one point but used junior guard Stefan Moody's 26-point effort to jettison in. Forward M.J. Rhett had 20 points of his own, and threw down a couple of dastardly dunks to boot.

As a result of their win, Ole Miss is now set to play the Xavier Musketeers on Thursday in Jacksonville, Florida in the Round of 64 of the 2015 NCAA Tournament.

Stay tuned for more coverage of the 2015 NCAA Tournament on Big East Coast Bias, including a Q&A with Ole Miss SB Nation blog Red Cup Rebellion about this upcoming contest.
