Recap: Vanderbilt vs. Ole Miss

Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - Marshall Henderson scored a game-high 26 points and sent the game into overtime where the Ole Miss Rebels captured an 89-79 win over the Vanderbilt Commodores in SEC play at Memorial Gym.

Henderson, one of four starters to score in double figures for the Rebels (14-2, 3-0 SEC), connected on 4-of-11 shots behind the 3-point line, including a long-distance conversion that knotted the game at the end of regulation.

Reginald Buckner and Jarvis Summers both tallied 14 points, the former clearing a game-high 11 rebounds, while Murphy Holloway accounted for 12 points and eight boards as Ole Miss won for the sixth straight outing.

The Commodores (6-9, 0-3), who were held to a mere 33 points by Arkansas over the weekend, were led by Kedren Johnson who posted 19 points and eight assists, followed by Dai-Jon Parker with 16 points. Sheldon Jeter chipped in 13 points and Kevin Bright 12 as he knocked down 4-of-7 shots beyond the arc as the team bowed for the fifth time in six tries.

Henderson played almost the entire first half, scoring 13 points, while LaDarius White accounted for nine, but the Rebels still trailed by a point at the break, 41-40.

Vandy led by as many as 13 points with under nine minutes to play in the second half, but the Rebels chipped away and grabbed a 73-72 advantage with just over two minutes remaining in regulation.

With 3.2 seconds left, Bright hit the 17th 3-pointer of the night for the Commodores, giving the hosts a 78-75 advantage and what appeared to be a sure victory, but Ole Miss immediately inbounded the ball and put it in the hands of Henderson who knocked down a triple of his own from about 30 feet as the buzzer sounded.

In the extra session Vanderbilt ran out of gas, scoring just a single point in five minutes, as the Rebels claimed the double-digit victory on the road.

In a game that featured five ties and 11 lead changes Vandy, which set a new record for 3-pointers made in a game at Memorial Gym, shot only 10-of-23 at the free-throw line on the night.
