TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Marshall Henderson led Ole Miss with 14 points and Anthony Perez added 13, but the Rebels fell to Alabama 67-64 on a last-second 3-pointer by the Crimson Tide's Trevor Releford Tuesday night.
Releford scored 21 of his 26 points in the second half and accounted for 14 of Alabama's 16 points over the final 5 minutes with an assist on the other basket. The Crimson Tide are now 10-14, 4-7 in the Southeastern Conference.
Jarvis Summers had tied the game on two free throws with 13 seconds left for the Rebels (16-8, 7-4). Then Releford brought the ball across midcourt, passed once and got it right back.
Nick Jacobs added 18 points and eight rebounds for Alabama while Shannon Hale scored 15. Releford made 8 of 9 free throws.
LaDarius White had 10 points and eight rebounds for the Rebels.
Releford's two free throws with 1:11 left put Alabama up 64-58. Then Aaron Jones made 1 of 2 free throws and Perez saved an offensive rebound out to Henderson, who drilled a 3-pointer over Retin Obasohan.
Then Hale missed a 3-pointer and Ole Miss, down by two points, called a timeout with 17 seconds remaining to set up a play.
Releford fouled Summers, who made both, but finished with nine points on 2-of-9 shooting.
