Auburn ekes out 69-68 2OT win over Ole Miss

AP Sports Writer

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -- Frankie Sullivan scored 19 points and
grabbed a key rebound, helping Auburn survive for a 69-68,
double-overtime victory over Mississippi on Saturday.

The Tigers (11-6, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) lost a 12-point
lead in the second half and didn't make a basket in the second
extra period but managed to snap a three-game losing streak.

The 6-foot-1 Sullivan, who didn't score in the first half, won
the battle for a rebound after Kenny Gabriel blocked Jarvis
Summers' off-balance shot in the final seconds. He missed both
free throws but with 1-tenth of a second to play, the Rebels
(10-7, 1-2) had no time to get a shot off.

Neither team made a field goal in the second overtime until
Reginald Buckner's dunk off a pass from Summers brought the
Rebels within a point with 34 seconds left.

That was it for the scoring.

Chris Denson dribbled across midcourt against the full-court
press but had the ball knocked away into Jarvis Summers' hands.
Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy then called timeout with 12 seconds
left to set up the final shot.

The teams combined for seven points in overtime No. 2.

Sullivan, who came off the bench, also had four assists and four

Denson scored 16 points while Gabriel had 11 points and 13
rebounds and played all but 2 minutes. Both were 4-of-12
shooting. Varez Ward made just 2 of 13 attempts - and missed a
potential game-winner to close regulation - but had eight points
and five assists.

Summers went 4-of-8 from 3-point range and scored 22 points for
the Rebels. Nick Williams struggled to 5-of-18 shooting but had
13 points and a key 3-pointer.

Holloway had 11 points and 11 rebounds while Buckner collected
11 points and 10 boards.

They helped Ole Miss control the boards 49-39.

The Rebels, who beat Arkansas without making a 3-pointer,
launched 28 in this game and made only seven.

Summers scored the Rebels' first six points in the initial
overtime to take a 63-62 lead. Then, Gabriel hit a 3-pointer
with 1:35 left for his first points since halftime.

Terrance Henry, who was held to five points, tied it 65-65 with
a drive. Ward then missed a pullup jumper but Henry traveled
after grabbing the rebound, giving the Tigers the ball with 29
seconds left. Sullivan lost control of the ball to send it into
overtime No. 2

Williams and Auburn's Rob Chubb both fouled out in the second

Sullivan scored seven points to fuel a 12-2 run that put ahead
Auburn 39-27 with 12:12 left.

The Rebels worked their way back into it, and Williams tied the
game on a 3-pointer from the right corner with 13 seconds left
in regulation. Ward missed a bank shot as time expired.

Ole Miss scored six straight points over the final 28 seconds.
