FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Chris Warren scored 20 of his 31 points in the second half, and Mississippi rallied from a late nine-point deficit to edge Arkansas 68-66 Saturday.
The Razorbacks (14-17, 7-9 Southeastern Conference) appeared in control with a 65-56 lead and Ole Miss struggling to score, but the Rebels (21-9, 9-7) slowly chipped away, scoring seven straight points to cut the deficit to two. Warren then made a 3-pointer with 53.2 seconds left -- after Ole Miss rebounded its own missed free throw -- to give his team its first lead at 66-65.
Ole Miss wrapped up a first-round bye in the SEC tournament with the win.
