OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — John Petty Jr. scored 21 points, Jaden Shackelford had 18, and Kira Lewis Jr. added 17 to lead Alabama to a 103-78 victory over Mississippi on Saturday night.
Alabama (15-12, 7-7 SEC) continues to boast one of the best-producing offenses in the country, going 37 of 66 from the field, hitting 13 3-pointers and besting the Rebels 25-15 in assists. Alex Reese chipped in 12 points, and the Tide bench scored 31.
Ole Miss (13-14, 4-10 SEC) jumped out to an early 9-2 lead, but Alabama dominated the rest of the first period and led 45-31 by halftime. Thirteen of the Rebels’ 21 turnovers were in the first half.
The two teams traded technical fouls on successive possessions early in the second half and Ole Miss head coach Kermit Davis was ejected. At one point the Rebels hit six consecutive field goals and still never pulled closer than 11 points.
Breein Tyree led the Rebels with 28 points but fouled out with just under 9 minutes left in the game. Devontae Shuler had 21 points and Blake Hinson added 11 points.
