OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Marshall Henderson scored 28 points, hitting six 3-pointers in the second half, and No. 23 Mississippi rallied for a 62-56 victory over Tennessee on Thursday night.
Henderson is the Southeastern Conference's leading scorer with 18.9 points per game and he put on a show in the second half, nearly single-handedly carrying the Rebels (16-2, 5-0 SEC) to their eighth consecutive victory. He scored 32 against the Volunteers just two weeks ago in a win in Knoxville.
It's only the second time Ole Miss has started 5-0 in SEC play.
Reginald Buckner added 10 points in a foul-filled game that made both teams go deep into the bench.
Tennessee (9-8, 1-4) led for much of the game, but couldn't withstand Henderson's hot shooting. Jordan McRae led the Volunteers with 26 points while Trae Golden added 11.
