OXFORD, Miss. -- Terrico White scored 21 points, Murphy Holloway had 18 points and 13 rebounds, and Mississippi beat Tennessee 81-65 on Wednesday night, further muddling the race for the Southeastern Conference title.
The Rebels (14-11, 5-6) held the Volunteers (16-9, 7-4) without a field goal for more than 5 minutes to take control and the SEC's hottest shooting team hurt itself by missing 33 of 57 shots and 13 free throws.
The win snapped a two-game losing streak for Ole Miss and a two-game winning streak for Tennessee. The Volunteers had won four of their last five to move into a first-place tie in the SEC East and could have taken the lead with a win after South Carolina lost to Mississippi State on Wednesday.
