MANHATTAN, Kansas (AP) D.J. Johnson scored eight of his 14 points during a 19-2 run in the second half, and Kansas State held off Ole Miss 69-64 in the Big 12/SEC Challenge on Saturday.

Wesley Iwundu finished with 11 points, six rebounds and three assists for the Wildcats. Justin Edwards and Stephen Hurt added 10 points apiece.

Barry Brown missed the second of two free-throw attempts following a foul with 8:49 left, but grabbed his own rebound and scurried to the corner where he sunk a 3-pointer. The bucket bookended a 17-point swing for Kansas State that proved insurmountable.

Rebels star Stefan Moody entered leading the SEC in scoring averaging 24.3 points, including 14-straight games with 20-plus points. But after a 10-point first half, Moody was held scoreless in the final period.

Ole Miss was led by Anthony Perez with 13 points.
