The Missouri Tigers were down 15 at the half and by as many as 18 early in the second half, but Ole Miss cooled off in the second half. The Tigers mounted a furious comeback and cut the lead to one, before eventually falling 91-88 in Oxford.
After cutting the lead to one, Ole Miss built the lead back up to eight with just 18 seconds to play. Ryan Rosburg scored on a tip in and Jabari Brown hit his first three pointer of the game with two seconds left. After Jarvis Summers stepped out of bounds after getting the inbounds pass, the Tigers had one last chance with .9 to play. Earnest Ross’ potential game tying three grazed the front of the rim.
Rebels’ senior Marshall Henderson had 29 points and was 8 of 15 on three pointers, but he and Ole Miss simmered after building a 50-35 halftime lead.
