TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Trevor Releford made a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 0.6 seconds left to lift Alabama to a 67-64 victory over Mississippi on Tuesday night.

Releford scored 21 of his 26 points in the second half before delivering the final shot that helped snap a four-game losing streak for the Crimson Tide (10-14, 4-7 Southeastern Conference).

Jarvis Summers had tied the game on two free throws with 13 seconds left for the Rebels (16-8, 7-4). Then Releford brought the ball across midcourt, passed once and got it right back.

He fired the ball over Ole Miss' sharpshooter Marshall Henderson to deliver the win for a team that had dropped six of its last seven games.

Nick Jacobs added 18 points and eight rebounds for Alabama while Shannon Hale scored 15.

Henderson led Ole Miss with 14 points on 4-of-14 shooting from 3-point range.
