Ole Miss’ junior guard Breein Tyree was given SEC Player of the Week honors after a career high 31-point performance against the Vanderbilt Commodores Saturday night in the Music City. The Rebels defeated Vandy 81-71.

Tyree’s output was the most points scored by a Rebel and a Vanderbilt opponent this season. 

The Somerset, New Jersey, native produced his first career 30-point game, and has scored at least 20 points in seven of the last 10 games. He was a perfect 6 of 6 from the line, making four free throws during the final six minutes to help keep Ole Miss ahead late in the game.

Tyree is the only SEC player to rank in the conference’s top five in scoring (second at 18.4 ppg), field goal percentage (third at 53.7 percent), free throw percentage (fourth at 83.9 percent) and three-point field goal percentage (fourth at 42.6 percent). Tyree also cracks the SEC top 10 in playing time (sixth at 31.8 minutes per game) and three-pointers made (10th with 2.2 per game).

Ole Miss returns to action on Wednesday at the Pavilion as they play host to No. 12 Auburn at 6 p.m. on ESPN2.
