KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - La Salle's Tyrone Garland broke a 74-74 tie with 2.5 seconds left, and Jarvis Summers' half-court heave was off the mark as the Rebels fell 76-74 in a bid for a Sweet 16 appearance at the NCAA Tournament Sunday night.

Ole Miss, the SEC Tournament Champion, finishes the season with a 27-9 record, tied for the most wins in school history.

Marshall Henderson led the Rebels with 21 points, while Murphy Holloway had 14 points and 13 rebounds in his final game in the Red and Blue.

Thirteenth-seeded La Salle advances to face ninth-seeded Wichita State in the West Regional semifinals Thursday in Los Angeles.

Ramon Galloway led La Salle (24-9) with 24 points. Tyreek Duren added 19, and Garland had 17.

The teams traded buckets for most of the second half. After Henderson hit a baseline jumper to tie the score at 42 with 18:34 left, neither team scored consecutive buckets until Holloway followed his own missed free throw for a second straight layup at the 10:40 mark.

Henderson followed that by hitting a 3-pointer, and 12th-seeded Ole Miss led 59-55.

La Salle tied it at 62-62, but Ole Miss went on a quick 7-2 run to grab its biggest lead. The Explorers answered with a 5-0 run, and the score was knotted again at 69-69.

Summers sank a jumper to give Ole Miss a 71-69 lead, but Duren's 3-pointer gave the lead back to La Salle. Reginald Buckner's layup in traffic put the Rebels back on top, and LaDarius White's free throw extended the lead to 74-72. Duren went to the line with 1:07 left and hit both ends of a one-and-one to tie the score at 74-74.

Henderson's shot with 33 seconds left missed everything, and La Salle took over the ball with no shot clock.

Henderson hit a key 3-pointer right before the half to get Ole Miss within two points. La Salle had led by seven with less than four minutes remaining before the break.

Galloway scored 19 first-half points. He was 5-for-8 from 3-point range, helping La Salle take a 40-38 lead at halftime. Only three other Explorers scored in the first half. Tyrone Garland had nine points, Tyreek Duren added eight, and Jerrell Wright had four.

Meanwhile, Henderson led Ole Miss with 11 first-half points on three 3-pointers. He shot nine times from beyond the arc prior to intermission.
