OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Senior Marshall Henderson scored 29 points, including eight 3-pointers, and four Rebels scored in double figures, as the Rebels held off the Missouri Tigers 91-88 at home Saturday. 

Henderson hit 8 of 15 from 3-point range and added five assists for Ole Miss (16-7, 7-3 Southeastern Conference), who remained in sole possession of third place. Jarvis Summers and LaDarius White had 16 points apiece, and Anthony Perez 11.

Missouri (16-7, 4-6) trailed 91-83 with 19 seconds left and had an opportunity to force overtime, but a 28-foot shot by Earnest Ross bounced off the front of the rim at the buzzer. Missouri trailed by as many as 17 and 50-35 at halftime before a belated rally.

Ross led the Tigers with 24 points, Jordan Clarkson scored 23, Jabari Brown 20 and Ryan Rossburg 11. The loss was the third straight for the Tigers, who have lost consecutively to the top three SEC teams - Kentucky, Florida and Ole Miss.

Ole Miss shot 50 percent from the field (29 of 58) and 48.3 percent (14 of 20) from 3-point range. Missouri shot 47.5 percent (28 of 59) from the field, and hit 11 3-pointers, led by Ross with five.

The Rebels out-rebounded Missouri 34-33, paced by Aaron Jones and Sebastian Saiz, with 11 and 10, respectively.

Ole Miss wiped out an early Missouri advantage with a 14-3 run that built a 22-14 lead with 12:24 in the first half. The Rebels hit four 3-pointers, including a pair from Henderson, who added a nifty assist to Perez for another 3-pointer to highlight the go-ahead outburst.

The Rebels led the rest of the way, although Missouri rallied in the second half to pull within two points on four occasions and at 79-78 on a 3-point shot by Brown with 3:18 left.

Ole Miss outscored Missouri 6-0 in the following minute, all by Summers, and built a seemingly insurmountable 91-83 lead with 19 seconds remaining. Missouri scrambled within 91-88 and forced a turnover with 0.9 remaining, setting up a final opportunity for Ross.

Ole Miss has defeated the Tigers in three of four meetings over the past two seasons, including two wins in the final five seconds.
