COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Alex Oriakhi had a career-high 22 points to go with 18 rebounds, three blocks and a central role in a second-half fracas in No. 21 Missouri's easy 98-79 victory over Mississippi on Saturday.
Phil Pressey had four assists to break Anthony Peeler's career school record and had 22 points for Missouri (17-6, 6-4 Southeastern Conference), who bounced back nicely from their latest discouraging road loss, a 1-point setback at Texas A&M Thursday night. The Tigers are 14-0 at home and 0-5 on the road.
Marshall Henderson had 16 points on 4-for-15 shooting for the Rebels (18-5, 7-3), who was on the verge of cracking the Top 25 last week, but has lost three of four. Jarvis Summers also had 16 points while Murphy Holloway, coming off a career-best 24 points, was held to seven in 30 minutes.
Ole Miss whipped then-No. 10 Missouri 64-49 at home on Jan. 12, but gave up 50 points in the first half of the rematch and was outrebounded 50-32.
