Miami (Fla.) vs Mississippi

Mississippi 64, Miami 61


OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Dundrecous Nelson scored 17 points, while Murphy Holloway added 13 points and a game-high 17 rebounds Friday night as Mississippi defeated Miami 64-61 in overtime.

The Rebels (5-1) took the lead for good, 60-58, on a dunk by Holloway with 3:06 left in overtime and survived potential game-winning and game-tying shots by Malcolm Grant at the end of regulation and in overtime.

Jarvis Summers had 13 points and Terrance Henry added 12 for Ole Miss. The Rebels played without starting forward Reginald Buckner, who sat out due to a knee injury suffered in practice Thursday. He is expected to return in December.

Ole Miss raced to a 17-0 lead in the opening 8 minutes and led 46-41 with 8 minutes left in regulation before Miami rallied to force overtime.

Grant led the Hurricanes (4-1) with 22 points, including 6 of 12 from 3-point range. Grant's final 3-point shot pulled Miami within 62-61 with 21 seconds remaining in overtime.

Ole Miss followed Grant's 3 with a pair of free throws from Summers with 20 seconds left to build the 64-61 cushion.

Durand Scott added 13 points and Trey McKinney 12 for Miami.

Scott had his final shot blocked by Nelson and Grant recovered the ball outside the 3-point line, but was forced to rush an unsuccessful 3 at the buzzer.

Miami, which trailed 29-25 at halftime, finished 22 of 60 (36.7 percent) from the field. Ole Miss was 19 of 50 (38 percent) from the field.

The Hurricanes were 8 of 13 (61.5 percent) from the free-throw line, while the Rebels finished 19 of 30 (63.3 percent) from the stripe.

In overtime, Ole Miss converted 8 of 10 free-throw opportunities, including five from Summers. Miami managed only 2 of 4 in the extra frame, both from Scott.

The win was the first at home for Ole Miss over an ACC opponent and marked its first win over an ACC team since a March 2008 quarterfinal win in the National Invitational Tournament at Virginia Tech.
