OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Murphy Holloway scored 19 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in his first game back from a sprained ankle and Mississippi beat Arkansas 71-63 on Wednesday night.
Ole Miss (11-5, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) won for just the second time in six games, coming up with a much-needed victory after a blowout loss to LSU in its league opener.
Nick Williams added 18 points as the Rebels won the rebounding battle 48-26 and shot 50 percent from the field. Ole Miss led by as many as 13 points in the second half.
The loss snapped the Razorbacks' seven-game winning streak. Arkansas (12-4, 1-1) was led by Marvell Waithe's 15 points.
The 6-foot-7 Holloway missed the past three games because of the ankle injury. Ole Miss lost two of those three games.
