OXFORD, Miss. (AP)- Senior Marshall Henderson scored 26 points and sparked a decisive 14-1 surge in the opening three minutes of the second half Wednesday as Ole Miss defeated Louisiana-Monroe 75-62.

Ole Miss (8-2) used three consecutive 3-point shots from Henderson in the decisive run to build an insurmountable 51-34 lead with 16:52 left.

LaDarius White added 13 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Rebels, who shot 22 of 54, 40.7 percent, from the field. The Rebels led 37-33 at halftime and by as many as 20 points in the second half.

Louisiana-Monroe (3-3) was led by Amos Olatayo and Tylor Ongwae with 17 and 12 points, respectively. The Warhawks out rebounded Ole Miss 45-33, including a game-high 11 rebounds from Jayon James.

Ole Miss built an 11-6 lead in the opening six minutes, highlighted by the first of Henderson's 3-pointers. Louisiana-Monroe pulled into a tie on two occasions, the final time at 25-25 on a three-point play by RJ McCray with 6:12 left in the half.

The Rebels led 37-33 at halftime, finishing on the third of Henderson's 3-point shots. Henderson had 14 first half points and added three rebounds, a steal and an assist. Olatayo and Ongwae had 11 and 10 points, respectively, for the Warhawks in the half.
