FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Chris Warren took control in the second half, scoring 19 points as Mississippi pulled away for a 69-60 win over Arkansas on Saturday.
Warren, who hit a game-winning 3-pointer against Kentucky on Tuesday, scored 15 of his points in the second half for the Rebels. Ole Miss (15-8, 3-5 Southeastern) has now won three of four after four-straight losses to open conference play.
The Rebels led throughout the first half before Arkansas took its first lead after a steal and layup by Mardracus Wade put the Razorbacks up 38-36 in the second half.
After Julysses Nobles tied the game at 43 for Arkansas, Ole Miss took control with a 17-4 run to go up 60-47 and never trailed again.
Marshawn Powell led the Razorbacks (14-8, 4-5) with 19 points despite sitting out more than five minutes to start the game after injuring an ankle during the pregame shootaround.
