AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Chris Denson hit four straight free throws
in the final 35 seconds to help Auburn cap a 76-73 comeback victory
over Mississippi on Wednesday night.

The Tigers (10-19, 3-12 Southeastern Conference) rallied from a
20-point first-half deficit and survived a wild final sequence when
the teams swapped turnovers in a 2-second span.

Ole Miss (18-12, 6-9) had a couple of chances for the go-ahead
basket in the final seconds before Nelson's 3-point attempt from
behind halfcourt hit off the backboard.

The Rebels' full-court press forced a turnover with 16 seconds
left after Chris Warren's 3-pointer cut Auburn's lead to 74-73.
They gave it right back when Warren lost the ball out of bounds.

Ole Miss then forced a bad pass by Earnest Ross that Nelson
picked off. He passed inside to Nick Williams, who couldn't control
the ball.
