No. 12 Ole Miss vs. No. 13 La Salle: March Madness Preview

The Program - March Madness Analyst IIISeptember 19, 2015

Two teams no one expected to advance are featured in this compelling matchup. The Ole Miss Rebels won in stunning fashion when they toppled fifth-seeded Wisconsin by 11 points. 

Even more shocking than that result is the run by the 13th-seeded La Salle Explorers, who fought their way out of the first round of the tournament to face the fourth-seeded Kansas State Wildcats. They won narrowly over the Wildcats to advance to face the Rebels in the round of 32.

Which of these low-seeded teams will find themselves in the Sweet 16? Regardless of who advances, this game has all the makings of an instant classic!
