OXFORD, Miss.- Freshman Derrick Millinghaus scored a career-high 19 points with five assists and Marshall Henderson added 17 points, as Ole Miss outscored UALR 45-19 in the second half en route to a 92-52 win on Friday night.
Reginald Buckner earned his first double-double of the season, scoring 10 points and grabbing 11 rebounds, and the senior added three blocks in three-straight UALR possessions for an Ole Miss defense that posted 10 blocks in the game.
Five Rebels scored in double figures as Ole Miss topped the 90-point mark for the third-straight game for the first time since 2007-08.
"We were sloppy at times, but overall it's hard to be displeased when you beat a solid team," head coach Andy Kennedy said. "I've got a lot of respect for their program and they're always fundamentally sound and tough. They're not going to give you anything free and the way we played against them was a step in the right direction."
The Rebels went into halftime with a 14 point lead over the Trojans, but extended that lead with a 34-6 run to start the second half.
"Jarvis (Summers) had a couple of turnovers early, which gave Derrick an opportunity," Kennedy said. "Five assists and four turnovers are not ideal, but he was very active and I was pleased to see him have a good game."
Ole Miss shot 52.4 percent from the field, 52.9 percent in the second half, led by Henderson and Millinghaus. The senior tandem of Nick Williams and Murphy Holloway also added 12 and 11 points, respectively.
The Rebels held the Trojans, led by John Gillon's 14 points, to 29.7 percent from the field for the game.
Ole Miss will take on McNeese State on Nov. 16 at 7 p.m. at the Tad Smith Coliseum.
