Rebels fall apart in second half, lose at No. 22 Auburn

In their last five games, Ole Miss is 4-1 ATS with 4 unders and 1 over.

The last time Auburn played Ole Miss didn't go particularly well, either.

Tuesday provided Auburn a chance to create a fresher, more positive memory in both regards, and it took advantage.

Desean Murray scored 16 points, and No. 22 Auburn rallied back from a double-digit halftime deficit to extend its winning streak to 13 games with an 85-70 victory over Ole Miss on Tuesday in Southeastern Conference play at Auburn (Ala.) Arena. During the winning streak, five of the Rebels' victories occurred in Oxford, four in Auburn and one at the SEC Tournament (2012).

And was arguably the toughest to date.

"They're up 10 at halftime and we weren't playing well", Auburn coach Bruce Pearl said. "No disrespect to our first three opponents", Kennedy said.

The Auburn Tigers won their 12th straight game and improved to 14-1 (2-0 SEC) on the season after defeating the 22nd ranked Arkansas Razorbacks, 88-77, this past Saturday.

Breein Tyree led the Rebels (9-7, 2-2) with 24 points.

Those struggles were caused by facets of the game that have been strengths for Auburn all season. "We extended defensively a little bit", Pearl said.

"I think they're by far the most explosive offensive team we've played thus far in our SEC schedule".

"Usually able to come in and explain how we were able to win a game. I mean, we'll take it".

The biggest mistake, Pearl said, was settling on offense.

"I felt like in the second half, we passed the ball better in front of my bench", Pearl said. From that point, it was a close game, but Tyree's driving layups in the final minute proved to be the difference. The Bulldogs were 0 of 13 from 3-point range in the second half. After Ole Miss regained a one-point lead on a Dominik Olejniczak jumper with 11:07 remaining, Bryce Brown - who started 1 of 10 from the floor - finally hit from the left corner. The Rebels knocked down 27 of their 31 free throws (87.1 percent) and had a much better turnover percentage (12.1 vs. 21.6). "That's what makes a championship team different than a regular team". You might be down sometimes, but you have to go into that locker room and you're going to have to all come together and know this game is not over.

Coach Andy Kennedy's guards are accounting for 72.1 percent of the Rebels' scoring this season. Unlike Ole Miss, games involving the Tigers have a tendency to finish over the O/U total (58.3 percent).

In the first half, it was Anfernee McLemore and Horace Spencer who battled inside and scored seven points apiece to keep the Tigers in it. "It's hard when you can't score, when you have empty possession after empty possession. And they've really been playing downhill, most especially at home". "We had foul trouble everywhere and couldn't a play".

After the Rebels won both contests against the Tigers last season, these teams will clash for the first time this year. "We'll take it. Good teams win those games occasionally". It's just that we've not.
