OXFORD, Miss. — Terrance Henry scored 21 points, Nick Williams added 18 and Mississippi snapped a three-game losing by beating LSU 72-48 on Saturday.
Henry, a 6-foot-9 senior, became the 33rd player in Ole Miss history to score 1,000 career points. He had one of his better games of the season against the Tigers, making 7 of 12 shots from the field.
Ole Miss (16-12, 6-8 Southeastern Conference) never trailed, leading 34-24 at halftime before pulling away in the second half.
It was a crushing loss for LSU (17-11, 7-7), which had played its way into the NCAA Tournament conversation with a four-game winning streak. But the Tigers had a terrible offensive game, shooting just 31 percent (18 of 58) from the field.
Storm Warren led LSU with 13 points.
