Ole Miss Wins 2nd Straight

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Terrico White scored 19 points, David

Huertas added 17 and Mississippi beat Georgia 69-47 on Saturday.

The Rebels (15-11, 6-6 Southeastern Conference) held the

Bulldogs (10-17, 1-11) to 25 percent shooting from the floor,

blocked seven shots and dominated the paint with a 38-12 scoring

advantage under the basket in their second straight win.

It was another lackluster loss for Georgia, which has dropped 13

of its last 14 and is 1-6 under interim coach Pete Herrmann.

Terrance Woodbury led the Bulldogs with 19 points, becoming the

39th Georgia player with more than 1,000 career points.

Ole Miss struggled with its offense in the first half on the way

to a 27-21 lead at the break, but White and Huertas combined on a

13-0 run to start the second half that gave the Rebels a 19-point

lead. Malcolm White had three of his five blocks during the run.

Ole Miss held Georgia without a field goal for 3:31 out of the

locker room. It was the second significant scoreless period for the

Bulldogs.

The Rebels also held them without a point for 6 minutes early in

the first half. The stretch resulted in a 9-0 run for Ole Miss, but

just an 11-6 lead thanks to poor shooting. The Rebels were just 11

of 29 from the floor in the first 20 minutes, but Georgia was even

worse.

It was the second straight poor showing to start a game for the

Bulldogs. After scoring just 19 in the first half against Auburn on

Wednesday, they missed 21 of 29 shots against the Rebels and scored

the fourth fewest points of the season in the opening half.

Georgia's struggles continued in the second half and it finished

with just 14 total field goals. Georgia never got closer than 12

after Ole Miss' initial second-half run and trailed by as much as

22.

The Ole Miss frontcourt was dominant, especially in the second

half. Malcolm White had 11 points and nine rebounds to go with his

blocks and Murphy Holloway finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds,

his third straight double-double.
