Ole Miss edges Arkansas in OT

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Terrico White scored 25 of his 29 points after halftime to lead Mississippi to a 98-91 win over Arkansas in overtime Wednesday night.

The Rebels (16-13, 7-8), playing without injured guard David Huertas, trailed by 12 in the first half before rallying. Ole Miss led 73-66 after an 11-5 run that included three 3-pointers by White. Then it was Arkansas' turn to bounce back. The Razorbacks (14-14, 2-13 Southeastern Conference) took an 84-82 lead on Stefan Welsh's 3-pointer with 52.5 seconds left.

White tied it on a drive with 32.3 seconds remaining, and the teams headed to overtime after Welsh's 3-pointer in the final seconds rattled out.

Michael Washington opened the scoring for the Razorbacks in overtime, but the Rebels answered with a 9-0 run. Zach Graham scored seven consecutive points during that decisive stretch.
