The Rebels withstood a barrage of 3-point attempts from Auburn, as the Tigers took a whopping 30 three-point shots in the game. Ole Miss (16-7, 7-3) got hot, itself, from beyond the arc in the second half, hitting 5-of-6 threes in the second half.

But it was the Rebels consistent FG shooting that enabled them to finish at 57.8 percent on the night and leave Auburn (11-12, 3-7) with a win. LaDarius “Snoop” White led Ole Miss with 20 points, followed by Stefan Moody with 15 and Jarvis Summers with 13.

In all, the Ole Miss had five players in double-figures, with Sebastian Saiz and Anthony Perez finishing with 11 and 10 points, respectively. The Rebels won the battle on the boards, notching 34 rebounds to Auburn’s 30. Martavious Newby grabbed seven boards to lead Ole Miss, while LaDarius White had six.

Antoine Mason led the Tigers in scoring with 23, and K.T. Harrell added 16. Cinmeon Bowers notched 13 rebounds.
