ST. THOMAS, U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS - No. 19 Marquette used a fast-paced attack to hold off Ole Miss 96-66, despite Terrance Henry scoring 19 points in the Paradise Jam semifinal game.

Ole Miss (3-1) will play TCU in Monday's third-place game. Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. AT (5 p.m. CT), and the game will be televised on FSN and Fox College Sports.

Jae Crowder scored 25 points and Darius Johnson-Odom added 20 for the Golden Eagles (4-0), who will play in the tournament championship Monday against Norfolk State, a 66-53 winner over TCU.

Henry led the way with 19 points for Ole Miss, which shot 25 of 78 from the floor and missed all 14 of its shots from beyond the arc in the first half. The Rebels finished 3 of 23 from downtown.

Freshman Maurice Aniefiok added a career-high 10 points for the Rebels and made two of the team's three long-distance field goals.

“Every game, I’m amazed because we have been taking some horrible shots,” Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said. “There were a lot of good looks tonight that would just not go. It was very disturbing.”

The Rebels committed 19 turnovers compared to just nine assists. Kennedy said the difference in the game was Ole Miss' inability to attack or defend while in the transition.

“We knew they would be attacking early and often and we couldn’t stop them early on,” he said. “For the first time this year, we were going up against superior players on the open floor and we did not respond.”

Vander Blue’s fast-break dunk sparked a 13-0 run that gave Marquette control in the first half. The Golden Eagles led 51-29 at halftime and never looked back after scoring the first six points of the second half.
