OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - A.J. Ogilvy scored 27 points and made all
eight free throws attempts in the final 4 minutes to lead No. 17
Vanderbilt to an 82-78 victory over Mississippi on Thursday night.
The Commodores (20-5, 9-2 Southeastern Conference) did it their
way, grinding down the Rebels (17-8, 5-6) late with a relentless
inside game that led to 34 free throw attempts - three above their
average in league play. Vanderbilt hit 19 of 22 free throws over
the final 6:07 for its third straight win and 14th in 16 games.
It was the fourth loss in five games for Ole Miss, which is
fading from the NCAA picture after spending several weeks in the
Ogilvy was 8 of 10 from the field and 11 of 13 from the free
throw line, while Jeffery Taylor added 19 points. Jermaine Beal hit
9 of 10 free throws to finish with 14 points.
Chris Warren led Mississippi with 23 points.
