Vols use second half surge and defense to put away Ole Miss, 73-60

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Jeronne Maymon scored 18 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to help Tennessee overcome a slow start and beat Mississippi 73-60 on Wednesday night.

The Volunteers (15-13, 7-6 Southeastern Conference) trailed by as many as 13 points in the first half and were behind 31-30 at halftime. A layup by Maymon less than a minute into the second half sparked a 7-0 run that gave Tennessee its ultimate lead.

Jordan McRae came off the bench to add 16 points, including a highlight-worthy dunk that gave Tennessee a 47-37 lead with 11:20 to play. Demarco Cox answered with a layup at the other end, but the Rebels wouldn't get any closer.

Ole Miss and Tennessee entered the game first and second respectively in rebounding in SEC play, but the Volunteers outrebounded the Rebels 40-28 and outscored them in the paint 36-28.

Terrance Henry led Mississippi (15-12, 5-8) with 15 points.
