OXFORD, Miss. – Gracie Frizzell led three Ole Miss women’s basketball players in double figures with a career-high 21 points, but Lamar came away with the win Monday night, beating Ole Miss 85-71.

With the loss, Ole Miss fell to 2-1 this season while Lamar improved to 3-1. Kenyotta Jenkins added 11 points and Diara Moore, who has scored in double figures in all three games this year, scored 10.

For the game, Ole Miss shot 35.4 percent from the floor (23-65) while Lamar shot 57.9 percent (33-57). The Rebels recorded eight threes in the game, including five from Frizzell.

“That was a tough night for us and this is not the result we wanted going in,” head coach Brett Frank said.  “But, again, we are a new team with a new system so we will have growing pains along the way but it’s just something we have to get better at along the way.”

Lamar took a 14-7 lead with 12:06 left in the first half before a three from Frizzell cut the lead to four, 24-20, with 5:42 remaining in the first half.

In the second half, the Cardinals went up 17, 47-30, with 17:09 left in the game. The Rebels cut the lead to nine, 55-46, on a jumper from Valencia McFarland with 10:39 to play but Lamar pushed its lead back to double digits and posted the 85-71 win.

Ole Miss will play three games the week of Nov. 26, starting with a pair of home games on Nov. 27 vs. Mississippi Valley State at 7 p.m. and Lipscomb Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. The Rebels will play their first road game of the year on Dec. 1, traveling to LA Tech for a 7 p.m. game.
