BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Duop Reath scored 26 points, Skylar Mays added 17 points and LSU beat Ole Miss 82-66 on Saturday.

Aaron Epps had 11 points and nine rebounds and two blocks, and Tremont Waters added 11 points and eight assists for the Tigers (14-10, 5-7 Southeastern Conference).

Bruce Stevens and Deandre Burnett each scored 16 and Breein Tyree scored 10 for Ole Miss (11-14, 4-8 SEC).

After squandering a lead as large as 14 in the first half, the Tigers led by 10 or more for the final 12 minutes and by as many as 20 points twice in the final seven minutes.

Epps' soaring right-hand dunk over Tyree began a 15-4 run that restored LSU's double-digit lead in the second half. Mays' fast-break layup as he was fouled made it 57-46. Wayde Sims added a put-back and Mays converted a steal into a breakaway dunk to give LSU a 15-point lead at 61-46.

Epps got above the rim several times, also dunking for the first two baskets of the game as LSU raced to an 8-0 lead.

Reath's jumper was part of that initial run and the beginning of a productive first half for him. Hitting seven of his first eight shots, Reath scored 16 points in the game's first 13 minutes, capped by a 3-pointer that gave the Tigers a 27-16 lead.

LSU's first-half lead grew as large as 14 points on Mays' free throw with six minutes left in the half, but Ole Miss wasn't ready to fold yet.

Justas Furmanavicius' 3 marked the start or a 20-3 Rebels run. Brunett also hit a 3 during the run and Furmanavicius' jumper gave Ole Miss its first lead at 35-34 with 1:27 to go in the half.

After Terence Davis' jumper put Ole Miss up by three, Waters hit a straight-on 3 to tie it at 37 heading into halftime.
