OXFORD, Miss. (AP)
Six Oregon players scored in double figures during an entertaining game that stayed close throughout. The Ducks shot 38 of 65 (58.5 percent) percent from the field.
Marshall Henderson had a career-high 39 points for Ole Miss (6-2). The 6-foot-2 guard made 11 of 27 shots from the field, including 10 of 23 from 3-point range.
The final minute of regulation was wild, with Ole Miss hitting three difficult 3-pointers in the last 40 seconds to climb out of an 86-80 hole. Henderson made two, and Jarvis Summers nailed an off-balance 22-footer to tie it at 89 with 0.8 seconds left.
The Rebels even had a chance to win in regulation after Oregon threw its inbounds pass out of bounds, but Henderson's last gasp 3-pointer clanged off the rim.
Henderson bounced back from a terrible 4-of-18 shooting night Thursday night in a loss to Kansas State.
But it wasn't enough to top the Ducks, who simply couldn't miss for most of the afternoon. The 6-foot-8 Moser made 8 of 13 shots from the field, alternating drives to the basket with 3-pointers, and Loyd had 15 assists and made 14 of 16 free throws.
The Rebels stayed even with the Ducks because of tough post play from Demarco Cox and Aaron Jones and timely outside shooting from Henderson, Summers and LaDarius White.
Ole Miss pushed out to a 62-55 advantage on Henderson's 3-pointer with 9:07 remaining, but the Ducks never flinched. Moser had 10 points in a row midway through the second half, single-handedly pushing Oregon ahead 67-65.
Derrick Millinghaus scored 15 points for the Rebels and LaDarius White added 13.
