OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Marshall Henderson scored 21 points, Jarvis Summers added 15 and Mississippi rallied from a 15-point deficit in the second half to beat South Carolina 75-71 on Saturday.

South Carolina pushed ahead 61-46 with 10:53 remaining, but Ole Miss methodically fought back. Summers drilled a 3-pointer with just under four minutes remaining to give the Rebels a 67-66 lead - their first of the second half.

Summers was clutch in the final minutes, also hitting an 18-foot jumper and a layup to keep the Rebels ahead.

Ole Miss (15-6, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) shot 44.1 percent (26 of 59) from the field. LaDarius White scored 12 and Aaron Jones added 11.

South Carolina's Brenton Williams scored 23 points and Sindarius Thornwell added 18. After the Gamecocks (8-13, 1-7) took their 61-46 lead, Ole Miss went on a 21-5 run.
