CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - Anthony Perez hit a pair of free throws with 4.4 seconds remaining to push Ole Miss past Coastal Carolina 72-70 Saturday night.

Marshall Henderson had 19 points, including 14 in the second half as the Rebels overcame a halftime deficit. 

The Rebels (2-0) led just 60-58 with 4:03 to go when Henderson buried a 3-pointer. Then after the Rebels missed a shot on the next possession, he stole a pass in the backcourt and dunked it to put Ole Miss up 65-58 with just over three minutes to go.

But the game wasn't over yet. Henderson's teammates would miss five of their next eight free throws and Henderson got the ball stolen from him as he tried to dribble around several players with Ole Miss up 66-61 with 1:24 left.

Coastal Carolina (1-2) had a chance to tie with nine seconds left, but Josh Cameron's 3-point attempt rattled in and out. Perez then hit two free throws, making Cameron's 3 at the buzzer meaningless.

Henderson's 19 points led all scorers. He was 6-of-16 from the field and 4-of-8 on 3-pointers. He had four steals, three turnovers and no assists.

Cameron scored 16 for Coastal Carolina, making three of his seven 3-pointers. Warren Gillis also had 16 points before fouling out late.

Jarvis Summers scored 14 points and Derrick Millinghaus added 12 points for Ole Miss.

The Rebels shot just 60 percent (24-of-40) from the foul line, but shot 16 more free throws and made 11 more foul shots than the Chanticleers.

Henderson was rusty to start, missing his next six shots and going just 1-of-7 from the field in the first half. He made five of his nine shots in the second half, including three of five 3s.
