SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - Ole Miss fell behind midway through the second and could not climb all the way back in a 68-56 loss to Middle Tennessee on a neutral floor at the Desoto Civic Center Wednesday night.

Raymond Cintron, who scored a game-high 18 points, and JT Sulton keyed a 13-1 run midway through the second half for Middle Tennessee.

With the game tied at 43-43 with 9:42 left, Sulton's dunk after Ole Miss committed a turnover on the other end of the floor gave the Blue Raiders (11-2) the lead for good.

Cintron made two free throws and then knocked down a 3-pointer on Middle Tennessee's next two possessions to expand the lead to 50-43.

After Jarvis Summers made a free throw to stop the run, Sulton spun a Nick Williams turnover into a dunk and then hit a jumper on the Blue Raiders' next trip to push the lead to double digits.

Summers led Ole Miss (9-3) with nine points. Jelan Kendrick had eight points, three rebounds, three assists and four steals in his first major action in a Rebel uniform.

Terrance Henry added eight points for the Rebels, and Murphy Holloway had six points and 11 rebounds before injuring his ankle in the second half.
