 SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) -Chris Warren scored 17 points, Dwayne Curtis added 15 and No. 22 Mississippi set a school record for consecutive wins to start the season with a 78-58 victory over Southern Miss on Friday night.
Warren started two runs that helped Ole Miss hold off streaky Southern Miss (8-5), including a personal 7-1 run that straddled halftime and featured a 3-pointer from 30 feet as time expired in the first half.
Ole Miss held Southern Miss without a point in the final 6 1/2 minutes to break open an entertaining back-and-forth game.
The Rebels' 12th straight win set the school record for consecutive victories to start the season. The Rebels started the 1936-37 and 2000-01 seasons with 11 straight wins. Both years, the Rebels finished with 20 or more victories.
The win also tied the school record for consecutive wins in a season, set in 1926.
No. 25 Rhode Island 92, E. Michigan 75
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - Will Daniels and Jimmy Baron scored 18 points each to lead Rhode Island past Eastern Michigan in the Islander Invitational.
The muscular, 6-foot-8 Daniels did most of his damage inside for the Rams (12-1), who were playing their first game as a Top 25 team since the 1998-99 season. Baron scored from the outside, shooting 4-of-9 from 3-point range.
Zane Gray had 12 points for Eastern Michigan (4-5), which has lost four of its past five games. Carlos Medlock and Jesse Bunkley chipped in 10 apiece for the Eagles.
