NEW YORK (RNN) – The Ole Miss Rebels continue to hold on to their undefeated record, winning against the Penn State Nittany Lions 79-76 on Saturday night.

The victory comes in the championship game of the Barclays Center Classic.

It also came with the team's biggest rebel, Marshall Henderson, exchanging heated words with a few tournament attendees in the second half. A referee escorted Henderson to the bench and talked to Ole Miss Head Coach Andy Kennedy.

Henderson didn't seem to mind the hecklers – he finished the game with 19 points and two assists off the bench. Guard Jarvis Summers also scored 19 points with five assists and four rebounds in the contest.

Ole Miss (6-0) led by 13 points before Penn State rallied to end the first half, only trailing by five points. Penn State (6-2) led for most of the second half before Mississippi took over.

Summers and Henderson combined for 11 points in the last six minutes of regulation to pull away from a good shooting Penn State team.

The Rebels' next game will be on the road at Kansas State on Dec. 5.
