Auburn falls to Ole Miss 90-59

OXFORD, Miss.----Zach Graham scored a career-high 30 points on seven three-pointers to lead Ole Miss to a 90-59 victory over Auburn in Tad Smith Coliseum on Wednesday. Chris Denson had a career-high 16 points to lead the Tigers. 

Ole Miss (17-9, 5-6) scored the first 10 points of the game and ended the first half on a 19-5 run in the last 6:35 to lead 39-22 at the half.

The Rebels made seven first half 3-pointers to break the game open.

Auburn (9-16, 2-9) had closed the margin to 20-17 on a pair of Josh Wallace foul shots. 

"It just makes it hard when you can't score," said Auburn head coach Tony Barbee. *It goes back to what we did in the first half. We played good defense and had them stuck on 15 for five minutes. We just couldn*t score.* 

Auburn scored the first four points of the second half on a pair of steals and baskets by Kenny Gabriel and Allen Payne but that is as close as the Tigers would get the rest of the way at 39-26. 

The Tigers shot only 41.2 percent from the floor and 20 percent

(3-of-15) from 3-point range while the Rebels were 56.8 percent from the field and a torrid 52 percent (13-of-25) from behind the arc. 

 Auburn plays host to No. 18 Vanderbilt on Saturday at 3 pm Central in Auburn Arena.  The game will be televised by the SEC Network.
