  •  

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Terrance Henry scored 15 points as Mississippi won its eighth consecutive season opener with a 60-38 win over Louisiana-Monroe on Friday night.

Nick Williams added 13 points and Dundrecous Nelson had 12, as the Rebels limited their opponent to its lowest scoring output since a 71-38 win over Arkansas Pine Bluff in December, 2002.

Fred Brown led Louisiana-Monroe with seven points, but managed only 2-of-12 from the field. The Warhawks finished 14-of-49 (29 percent) from the field and had only four field goals in the first half.

Louisiana-Monroe led only once, 3-0, on a three-point shot by Brown in the opening minute. Ole Miss answered with a 16-2 run in the next four minutes, capped by a layup from Nelson, which built what turned out to be an insurmountable lead.

Ole Miss led 33-11 at halftime, led by Williams with 10 points. Louisiana-Monroe never got closer than 16 points, 49-33 with 5:14 left. R.J. McCray, in a reserve role, finished with six points, four rebounds and a steal for the Warhawks.

Murphy Holloway and Reginald Buckner helped dominate the boards for the Rebels, who finished with a 48-34 rebound edge. Holloway grabbed 17 rebounds and Buckner added 10. The duo also added two blocked shots apiece.

The contest marked the return of Holloway to the Ole Miss lineup, after being ruled eligible last week by the NCAA. Holloway started two seasons for the Rebels before transferring to South Carolina, where he spent last season as a redshirt. Holloway returned to Ole Miss after last season.

Ole Miss forced 18 turnovers, compensating for a 19-of-57 (33 percent) shooting performance. The Rebels struggled from three-point range, hitting 5-of-26 (19 percent).
