Shooting machine Stefan Moody led Ole Miss in scoring with 22 points, helping the Rebels improve their record to 10-4 in the SEC and 19-8 overall.

Tennessee took a 30-27 lead to the locker room at the half, but the Rebels weren’t done fighting. Ole Miss created turnovers and took control of the game in the second half, outscoring the Volunteers 32-27 to clinch the victory.

The Rebels had just a handful of turnovers in the game, all confined to the first half of play.

The Vols were led in every category by Armani Moore, with 15 points, nine rebounds and five assists in the game.

Up next for the Rebels, Ole Miss welcomes the Georgia Bulldogs to the Tad Pad Wednesday night. Tipoff is set for 8 p.m. on SEC Network.
