STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP)Jarvis Summers scored 23 points and LaDarius White added 16, but Ole Miss fell to Mississippi State 76-72 on the road..

Mississippi State's Roquez Johnson shot 7 of 11 from the field on a variety of impressive moves around the basket. Craig Sword was 0 of 7 from the field, but was 15 of 18 on free throws.

Mississippi State (11-4, 1-1 SEC) led 43-36 at halftime, but Ole Miss rallied to push ahead 58-54 by midway through the second half.

Summers shot a 3-pointer that tied the game at 72 with 1:19 remaining. But Mississippi State scored the final four points at the free-throw line to seal the win.

Mississippi State was helped by a huge 42-12 advantage on free-throw attempts. The Bulldogs made 28 of 42 (66.7 percent).

Mississippi State and Ole Miss both shot 13 of 32 (40.6 percent) from the field in the first half, but the Bulldogs built their lead thanks to a 21-5 advantage in free-throw attempts and the Rebels' 11 turnovers.

Derrick Millinghaus made three early 3s and Summers added two from long range to keep Ole Miss close in the first half. Then the Rebels went on a 12-0 run over a 4-minute span midway through the second half that turned a 54-46 deficit into a 58-54 lead.

The Ole Miss bench was crucial during that span. Anthony Perez made five straight points and also blocked a shot while Dwight Coleby grabbed an offensive rebound and slammed it home.

LaDarius White scored 16 points and Millinghaus added 15 for the Rebels.
