OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Terrance Henry scored 10 points and blocked a 3-point shot in the final 30 seconds, and Ole Miss won its third straight game to close the regular season, beating Alabama 60-51 on Senior Day at Tad Smith Coliseum.

Jarvis Summers and LaDarius White added 10 points apiece for the Rebels (18-12, 8-8 Southeastern Conference), who snapped Alabama's four-game winning streak.

Ole Miss will be the No. 7 seed in next week's SEC Tournament and will play No. 10 Auburn at 6:30 p.m. CT Thursday at New Orleans Arena. The winner of that game will advance to Friday's second-round game against the No. 2 seed (6:30 p.m.), which will either be Florida or Tennessee depending on Florida's result versus Kentucky in its regular-season finale on Sunday.

Trevor Releford led the Crimson Tide (20-10, 9-7) with 12 points while JaMychal Green had 11 points and 13 rebounds. Alabama will be seeded fifth in the SEC tournament.

Ole Miss led 28-17 at halftime on the strength of a 14-2 run in the final seven minutes of the half. Alabama managed only 1 of 15 from the field during the decisive Ole Miss outburst.

Alabama never got closer than four points in the second half, the final time on a 3-pointer from Releford to make it 43-39 with 10:05 left.
