STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Renardo Sidney scored 22 points, Ravern
Johnson added 16 and Mississippi State beat Mississippi 71-58 on
Saturday.

Sidney, who scored his season-high of 24 points against the
Rebels in a win earlier this season, was 8 of 12 from the field and
also grabbed 12 rebounds.

Mississippi State (14-12, 6-6 Southeastern Conference) has won
five straight games in the series.

Ole Miss (17-10, 5-7) critically damaged what was left of its
slim NCAA Tournament at-large hopes. The Rebels scored the final
seven points of the first half to tie the score at 33, but
Mississippi State went on a 13-2 run early in the second half and
never trailed again.

MSU and Ole Miss came into the game in a three-way tie with
Arkansas for second place in the SEC's Western Division. The first
two teams in each division get a first-round bye in the SEC
Tournament.
