Mississippi vs La Salle takes place on Sunday night in the NCAA 2013 tournament in what is expected to be one of the closest battles in the third round of March Madness games. The game is scheduled to tip off at 7.40 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
No. 12 seeded Mississippi and No. 13 seeded La Salle stands out as one of the more unusual games in the third round ties, but it should be an entertaining one.
The Rebels managed to get through to this game after causing an upset against the Wisconsin Badgers.
Marshall Henderson struggled a lot in the first half of that second round game for the Rebels, but he pulled himself together for the second half and helped his team to victory in the end.
This match may be a loss less forgiving and Henderson can ill afford to have a bad 20 minutes in tonight's game if the Rebels want to progress. He will be looking to hit the ground running and play a good game for all 40 minutes tonight.
La Salle did extremely well against No. 4 seeded Kansas State in their last game but almost threw away all their good work in the second half. However, the ended the final few minutes well and claimed the win with a late free throw and a defensive stop.
Both teams will now fight it out to place Wichita State in the next round after Wichita knocked out No. 1 seeded Gonzaga on Saturday.
