OXFORD, Miss. (AP)–A.J. Ogilvy scored 27 points and made all eight free throws attempts in the final 4 minutes to lead No. 17 Vanderbilt to an 82-78 victory over Mississippi on Thursday night.
The Commodores (20-5, 9-2 Southeastern Conference) did it their way, grinding down the Rebels (17-8, 5-6) late with a relentless inside game that led to 34 free throw attempts–three above their average in league play. Vanderbilt hit 19 of 22 free throws over the final 6:07 for its third straight win and 14th in 16 games.
It was the fourth loss in five games for Ole Miss, which is fading from the NCAA picture after spending several weeks in the Top 25.
Ogilvy was 8 of 10 from the field and 11 of 13 from the free throw line, while Jeffery Taylor added 19 points. Jermaine Beal hit 9 of 10 free throws to finish with 14 points.
Chris Warren led Mississippi with 23 points.
