OXFORD, MS (RNN) – Ole Miss broke a two-game losing streak and a four-game losing streak against the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders 72-63 on Saturday.

But their victory may have been short-lived. In his first start of the regular season, guard Marshall Henderson had his right ankle stepped on by a MTSU player during another player's free throw attempts, but remained in the game, scoring 15 points.

The Rebels (7-2) led for most of the game against the Blue Raiders (7-3) after losing their last two games against Oregon and Kansas State. MTSU lead briefly in the second half, but Ole Miss took over late in the second half to win.

Guard Jarvis Summers was Ole Miss's leading scorer with 25 points.

The Rebels next game will be at home against the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks on Wednesday, Dec. 18.

    Markus Kittrell is well aware when people speak of Wayne County football, the assumption is the conversation will be of the public school War Eagles. Kitrell and his teammates would like to change that a bit this fall. “When you say Wayne County, everybody knows Wayne County High School, but it’s time for us to put it out there about Wayne Academy, where everybody will know about us,” said Kittrell, a 6-foot-4, 300-pound, two-way lineman for the Jaguars.

    For a second consecutive football season, West Marion High School and Presbyterian Christian School will square off in the season-opening game for each school.
