NORMAN, Okla. -- The Oklahoma Athletics Ticket Office is currently selling all-session tickets to the public for the Dayton Regional where the ninth ranked and third seeded Oklahoma women's basketball team (28-4) will face seventh seed Ole Miss (23-10) on Sunday, March 25. The game time (11 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. Central) and ESPN channel have not been announced by the NCAA.

Tickets are $37 and will include the games on both Sunday, March 25 and Tuesday, March 27. 

Tickets may be purchased through 3 pm on Wednesday, March 21, and are available by phone at 800-456-GoOU or 405-325-2424. 

All tickets must be picked up in Dayton on the day of the game. 

Ole Miss upset defending national champion Maryland, 89-78, on Tuesday night in Hartford, Conn.  Senior guard Armintie Price led the Rebels with 28 points, 7 rebounds and a 10-11 effort at the free throw line.  Fellow senior Ashley Awkward also poured in 22 points.

Mississippi used its stifling defense to force 29 Terrapins turnovers and take control of the game from the early going. The Rebels led by as many as 23 points in the first half.

OU and Ole Miss have split two all-time meetings.  OU won in Norman in 1997 and lost in Oxford in 1998.  OU is 1-0 against the SEC this season, having beat South Carolina, who also plays an up-tempo defense similar to Ole Miss. 

OU is 11-13 all-time against the SEC.  The only time OU has faced an SEC opponent in the NCAA Tournament was in its first appearance in 1986 when it defeated Vanderbilt.

The game will be aired in high definition by ESPN-HD or ESPN2-HD.  The specific channel will be announced late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning.
