Rebels rally from 15-point deficit to beat Hogs

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Terrance Henry's three-point play with 8.2 seconds remaining lifted Ole Miss to a 77-75 win over Arkansas on Tuesday night.

Henry finished with 19 points to lead the Rebels, who trailed by as many as 15 points in the second half before rallying. It was the second straight win for Ole Miss (17-12, 7-8 Southeastern) after a three-game losing streak and the Rebels' fourth consecutive win against the Razorbacks in once-daunting Bud Walton Arena.

"What a game," Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said. "I'm not sure I've been a part of one like that, at least not this year.

"I just think when we come in we've had some success because our kids have been aggressive," Kennedy said.

Jarvis Summers added 17 points, scoring 16 in the second half, and Murphy Holloway had 16 points and 16 rebounds for the Rebels.

The Razorbacks (18-12, 6-9) led 55-40 midway through the second half before faltering and falling to 17-3 at Bud Walton Arena this season. The loss was Arkansas' third in a row at home after opening the season 17-0.

BJ Young led the Razorbacks with 19 points. Mardracus Wade added 14 and Julysses Nobles 13

Ole Miss trailed by nine at halftime but quickly pulled even before Arkansas built a 15-point lead.

"I think we hit our first three shots," Kennedy said. "(Wade) made us pay -- bam, bam, bam. Our guys kept battling. …I thought we did a reasonable job against their pressure say for that stretch where we gave it up to them for dunks and layups."

After Henry's heroics, Arkansas had a chance to send the game to overtime. Young, however, missed on a runner close to the basket.

"B.J. Young's a phenomenal player," Kennedy said. "He's one of the marquee freshmen in the country. The kid is a terrific player. He plays with great tempo, great heart. I thought he was very, very good for them tonight."

Ole Miss closes the regular season Saturday against Alabama, a rematch of the Rebel's double-overtime loss to the Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Feb. 4. Tipoff Saturday in Oxford is set for 3 p.m.
