NEW YORK (AP) - Marshall Henderson and Jarvis Summers both scored 19 points, combining for 11 of Mississippi's last 12 in the undefeated Rebels' 79-76 victory over Penn State on Saturday in the championship game of the Barclays Center Classic.
Henderson, the star of last season's Mississippi team that advanced to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2002 but who was suspended for his actions toward fans after the loss, gave the Rebels (6-0) the lead for good at 69-68 on a drive with 5:36 to play. That was the start of the run by he and Summers.
D.J. Newbill got Penn State within 75-74 with a vicious dunk on the break after a Rebels' turnover, but Henderson made three free throws with 1:14 left to make it a four-point lead.
Newbill had 23 points to lead Penn State (6-2), which had a five-game winning streak snapped.
