    OXFORD, Miss. -- Terrico White scored 21 points, Murphy Holloway had 18 points and 13 rebounds, and Mississippi beat Tennessee 81-65 on Wednesday night, further muddling the race for the Southeastern Conference title.

    The Rebels (14-11, 5-6) held the Volunteers (16-9, 7-4) without a field goal for more than 5 minutes to take control and the SEC's hottest shooting team hurt itself by missing 33 of 57 shots and 13 free throws.

    Wayne Chism had 19 points and Tyler Smith added 16 to lead Tennessee, while David Huertas scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half to boost Ole Miss.

    The win snapped a two-game losing streak for Ole Miss and a two-game winning streak for Tennessee. The Volunteers had won four of their last five to move into a first-place tie in the SEC East and could have taken the lead with a win after South Carolina lost to Mississippi State on Wednesday.
