Nice video here of the Marshall Henderson off-the-glass assist to the trailing Anthony Perez for a dunk last night at Vanderbilt.

The three-game win streak — including two on the road at South Carolina and at Vanderbilt — has helped Ole Miss improve its RPI from the low 80s to 59 as of today according to ESPN.

RealTimeRPI has the SEC No. 7 in RPI among conferences.

The Rebels’ recent jump, though, suggests they can still play their way into the Dance if they keep winning. These two SEC road wins have come against teams not in the RPI 100.

Mississippi State also is outside the top 100 but if the Rebels protect home floor against the Bulldogs on Saturday, they’ll have a chance for a real RPI boost in a road game at RPI No. 48 Tennessee next Wednesday.
