OXFORD -- Jarvis Summers scored 20 points and sparked a decisive first-half surge Wednesday night to lift Ole Miss to a 79-67 win over Alabama.
Ole Miss (17-11, 8-7) snapped a four-game losing streak by racing to a 26-13 lead, after which Alabama could get no closer than six points. The Rebels led 43-28 at halftime.
The win kept Ole Miss in a tie for fourth place in the Southeastern Conference.
"The stat that jumps out to me is rebounding," Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said. "Our Achilles heel all year has been rebounding, but we were plus-18 on the glass. Anthony (Perez) had a huge one at the end. (Martavious) Newby was keeping balls alive. Demarco Cox gave us his best minutes in a long, long time. It was a good team effort."
Newby had an impressive double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds.
"He was, without question, the MVP of the game," Kennedy said. "That's the Martavious Newby we recruited; the one we thought would bring energy. He was all over the floor. He didn't hesitant and stepped up to hit two big threes. The timeliness of those were huge. He kept balls alive. He was the energy component we were looking for."
Marshall Henderson and Aaron Jones added 13 points and 12 points, respectively.
Henderson set an SEC record at 61 consecutive games with a 3-point shot, breaking the mark on his first attempt from the field.
The record was previously held by former Arkansas standout Pat Bradley.
Shannon Hale led Alabama (11-17, 5-10) with 27 points and nine rebounds as the Crimson Tide fell to 0-13 on the road. Trevor Releford scored 16 points, 14 in the second half, and Levi Randolph added 13.
Ole Miss travels to Texas A&M for a 5 p.m. game on Saturday while Alabama hosts rival Auburn at 2 p.m. on Saturday.
