DALLAS (AP) - Chris Warren scored 19 points, including eight during a 23-4 second-half run, and Mississippi defeated SMU 75-57 Wednesday night.
Zach Graham added 13 points to surpass 1,000 for his career, and Terrance Henry had 11 for the Rebels (12-3), who shot 69.6 percent in the second half.
Robert Nyakundi hit six 3-pointers and finished with 22 points for the Mustangs (9-5), who had their five-game winning streak snapped.
Mississippi led 36-35 before Henry hit a jumper with 17:06 remaining to spark the decisive spurt, which included three acrobatic dunks, the last by Graham for a 59-39 lead with 9:22 to go. SMU didn't get closer than 14 the rest of the way.
The Rebels trailed for most of the first half before scoring the final five points to take a 32-30 intermission lead. Mississippi has won four straight and nine of 10.
