Rutgers raced to a 12-2 lead in the opening five minutes, highlighted by a pair of baskets from Mack. The Scarlet Knights maintained the first-half advantage as Mack had 10 points, three rebounds and a pair of assists.

The Rebels managed only 6 of 21 from the free-throw stripe in the first half, including a pair of stretches of five consecutive misses. Ole Miss stayed within striking distance by forcing eight turnovers and the inside play from Holloway and Buckner.

The clubs exchanged leads until the decisive rally in the final seven minutes. The surge began with Henderson connecting on consecutive 3-point shots and an assist to Reginald Buckner to start a three-point play.

White finished the 14-2 run with a 3-point shot for a 69-57 lead with 5:28 left. The Rebels were only 7 of 23 from 3-point range, including a 3-of-4 performance from White.

Ole Miss improved to 58-2 in non-conference home games with the victory and marked the first home win in school history over a Big East Conference team.
