OXFORD, Miss. (AP)

Reserve guard Derrick Millinghaus scored 19 points and added five assists as Mississippi placed five scorers in double figures Friday night to defeat Arkansas-Little Rock 92-52.

Marshall Henderson, who made 5 of 10 from 3-point range, added 17 points for the Rebels (3-0). Nick Williams scored 12 points, Murphy Holloway had 11 and Reginald Buckner added 10 and a team-high 11 rebounds in the balanced attack.

John Gillon scored 14 points for Arkansas-Little Rock (1-2), which shot just 29.7 percent from the field (19 of 64). The Trojans led 10-3 in the opening four minutes but trailed by as many as 42 points, 81-39, in the second half.

Ole Miss shot 52.4 percent (33 of 63) from the field and forced 20 turnovers. The Rebels held a decisive 47-34 edge in rebounds and blocked 10 shots, including five by Aaron Jones.

''It's great to see Derrick have that kind of performance; he needed it,'' Mississippi coach Andy Kennedy said. ''Marshall has been very good in three games. Arkansas-Little Rock is young at the guard position and our guys were able to take advantage of that.''

Millinghaus, who was 1 of 13 from the field in the Rebels' first two wins, was 5 of 11 against the Trojans and added four rebounds and three steals in his most extensive playing time, 23 minutes, this season.

''I have to take advantage of these games to show what I can do,'' Millinghaus said. ''I think I played all right, but I think I'm capable of playing even better.''

The Rebels pulled away after the opening four minutes, primarily on the strength of a 27-9 run. Henderson hit a pair of 3-point shots while Buckner added three blocks and five rebounds to highlight the decisive series.

''We got control of the game there. We can be a real good basketball team,'' Buckner said. ''We're getting help from a lot of different players and we want to keep getting better.''

Ole Miss opened the second half on a 19-2 run, with Holloway and Henderson accounting for 14 points, to build an insurmountable 66-35 lead with 14:18 left. Arkansas-Little Rock never got closer than 35 points in the final 12 minutes.

''We've taken care of business so far in games where we've been at home and had a physical edge,'' Kennedy said. ''We've got things to work on and we're not a finished product, but I'm encouraged by what I'm seeing.''

The Rebels improved to 54-2 in nonconference home games in Kennedy's seven-year tenure and is 3-0 all-time against Arkansas-Little Rock.
