OXFORD, Miss. — The Ole Miss men’s basketball team fought hard against Arkansas Saturday in The Pavilion; however, the Rebels came up just short, 76-72.

KJ Buffen and Devontae Shuler notched double-doubles, while Breein Tyree added 27 points, but it wasn’t enough as the Rebels (9-6, 0-2 SEC) lost the back-and-forth battle. A career-high 34 points from Isaiah Joe allowed the Razorbacks (13-2, 2-1 SEC) to rally from a halftime deficit and escape The Pavilion with the victory.

Amanda Swain was on hand and captured the action.
