Hot-shooting Mississippi downs No. 19 Arkansas 96-82

Posted: Updated:
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Stefan Moody had 18 points as Mississippi shot a season-high 56.4 percent in a 96-82 win over No. 19 Arkansas on Saturday night.
Five players finished in double figures for the Rebels (11-6, 2-3 Southeastern Conference), who were playing their first road game since a crushing overtime loss at Kentucky.
Ole Miss led the No. 1 Wildcats by 13 points in that game before falling, and they opened up a 15-point lead in the first half Saturday - hitting eight of their first nine shots and 20 of 27 in the half.
The win improves Rebels coach Andy Kennedy's record to 11-4 in his career against the Razorbacks (13-4, 2-2), who have now lost two straight and had their 16-game home winning streak snapped.
Bobby Portis had 23 points to lead Arkansas, while Michael Qualls and Ky Madden had 22 each.
