Rebels turn back Kentucky, 71-69

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Chris Warren rattled in a 25-footer over two defenders with 2.9 seconds remaining and Mississippi beat No. 10 Kentucky 71-69 on Tuesday night.

Warren, who scored 22 points, hit the high-arcing shot to give the Rebels their first victory over a top 10 team during the five-year tenure of coach Andy Kennedy.

Warren finished 9 of 15 from the field, including 4 of 7 from 3-point range.

Terrance Jones scored 22 points and Doron Lamb added 20 for the Wildcats, who rallied from an 11-point second-half deficit to take the late lead. Lamb missed a running 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Ole Miss (14-8, 2-5 Southeastern Conference) got 16 points from Zach Graham and 12 each from Reggie Buckner and Terrance Henry.

Kentucky (16-5, 4-3) had a huge advantage in the all-time series coming into Tuesday, winning 96 of 108 games, including 25 of 34 in Oxford.
