AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Chris Warren scored 20 points and Terrico
White had 19, leading No. 18 Mississippi to an 84-74 victory over
Auburn on Thursday night.

The Rebels (16-4, 4-2 Southeastern Conference) shot 57 percent
and got 53 points from their three starting guards, including 14
from Eniel Polynice. They have already matched last season's win
total and won back-to-back league road games for the first time
since 2001.

The Tigers (10-11, 1-5) stayed in it with 3-pointers but cooled
off in the second half, launching 36 and making 11 in the game.

White and Terrance Henry hit consecutive 3s to start a 10-0 run
that put Ole Miss up 78-65 with 4:26 left. Before that surge, the
Rebels' biggest lead was six points.

Warren shot 4 of 7 from beyond the arc. He and Polynice each
dished out five assists.
