NASSAU, Bahamas - Five Rebels scored in double figures as Ole Miss rolled past the South Side Bulls 90-51 Wednesday night in the final game of its Bahamas exhibition tour.

The two teams were tied at 17 at the end of the first quarter after the Bulls knocked down a 3-pointer from 30 feet as time expired. Junior college transfer Roderick Lawrence responded for the Rebels in the first possession of the second quarter with a one-handed, put back dunk that started an 11-0 for Ole Miss.

The Rebels never looked back, as Ole Miss outscored the Bulls 31-7 in the second quarter to take a 48-24 halftime lead. Senior LaDarius White scored 7 points, while junior Anthony Perez and sophomore Sebastian Saiz each added six in the quarter.

"Tonight's game was much better than last night's game," said Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy. "I thought the second quarter was the basketball this group has played since coming together. The other team came out with great energy, but we were able to respond and play good basketball. We played all 11 guys double figure minutes and got production from a lot of different spots. All-in-all, I would say it was a successful trip."

White and Saiz each finished with a team-high 13 points, while Perez and junior Stefan Moody each added 11 points and Lawrence chipped in 10. Saiz pulled down 10 boards to post a double-double and senior M.J. Rhett grabbed 9 rebounds and added 6 points in a start.

The Rebels outrebounded the Bulls 53-27 and outscored them 40-26 in the paint. Ole Miss got 53 points off its bench, recorded 12 steals and forced South Side into 23 turnovers.

The two teams played under modified international rules including four 10-minute quarters, a 30-second shot clock and international 3-point line and lane.

Ole Miss wrapped up its Bahamian exhibition tour with a perfect 2-0 record. The Rebels will open the 2014-15 season at home Nov. 14 against Charleston Southern.
