SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - Raymond Cintron, who scored a game-high 18 points, and JT Sulton keyed a 13-1 run midway through the second half to spur Middle Tennessee to a 68-56 win over Mississippi Wednesday night.
The game was played at the DeSoto Civic Center, five miles south of Memphis.
With the game tied at 43-43 with 9:42 left, Sulton's dunk after Ole Miss committed a turnover on the other end of the floor gave the Blue Raiders (11-2) the lead for good.
Cintron made two free throws and then knocked down a 3-pointer on Middle Tennessee's next two possessions to expand the lead to 50-43.
After Jarvis Summers made a free throw to stop the run, Sulton spun a Nick Williams turnover into a dunk and then hit a jumper on the Blue Raiders' next trip to push the lead to double digits.
Summers led Ole Miss (9-3) with nine points.
