OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Deandre Burnett scored 24 points, Terence Davis and Markel Crawford both scored 15 and Ole Miss beat Alabama 78-66 on Tuesday night.


Ole Miss (11-9, 4-4 Southeastern Conference) remained undefeated at home during conference play. Alabama (13-7, 5-3) had its four-game winning streak snapped.

Ole Miss led the entire second half, though its 41-31 halftime advantage was quickly cut to 43-42. The Rebels responded with a crucial 15-6 run to create some separation and pull away for the win.

Alabama's star freshman Collin Sexton played 20 minutes after missing two straight games with an abdominal injury. He was mostly ineffective, shooting just 2 of 13 from the field.

The first half of the game featured wide swings in momentum with Ole Miss taking an early 18-9 lead.

Alabama responded with 18 straight points before Ole Miss came right back with 14 in a row. The Rebels ended the first half on a 23-4 run to take a 10-point lead by halftime.

Ole Miss' Burnett led all players with 16 points in the first half, making 6 of 8 shots from the field, including 3 of 4 from 3-point range.

Alabama was led by Donta Hall's 14 points. Dazon Ingram scored 10.

BIG PICTURE

Alabama: It was a tough night for Alabama, which came into Oxford on a roll, but struggled with its shooting touch for most of the night. Sexton was a little rusty in his return after missing two games, but the Tide will certainly need him during the rest of the season.

Ole Miss: The Rebels are a handful to deal with on their home court and shot nearly 55 percent in the second half to pull away for the win. Ole Miss has some big games over the next week, traveling to Texas before a crucial SEC home game against No. 19 Auburn.
