OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Marshall Henderson scored 28 points, Derrick Millinghaus added 14 and Mississippi easily beat Auburn 88-55 on Saturday night.

Henderson scored 19 of his points in the first half as the Rebels built a 44-27 halftime lead. The SEC's leading scorer didn't start for the first time all season, but came off the bench to hit eight 3-pointers, which tied the school's single-game record.

Ole Miss (20-7, 9-5 Southeastern Conference) won for just the third time in eight games and never trailed. Coach Andy Kennedy set a school record with his 145th career victory, which passes B.L. Graham's old mark of 144. Kennedy has a 145-85 record over seven seasons.

Auburn (9-18, 3-11) lost for the 11th time in 12 games. Shaquille Johnson led the Tigers with 18 points.
