AP Game Recap

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- With its once-promising season slipping away, Mississippi finally made a defensive stop.

Chris Warren scored 22 points, Dwayne Curtis had 10 points and 16 rebounds and Ole Miss held Mississippi State to 38.3 percent shooting in a 74-63 win Wednesday. The win split the season series and kept the Rebels' long-shot hopes for a Southeastern Conference Western Division title rolling.

Ole Miss (18-7, 4-7 SEC) snapped its four-game losing streak and Mississippi State's three-game winning streak, temporarily halting the Bulldogs' sprint away from the division pack. The loss cut Mississippi State's lead over Arkansas to one game and kept the Rebels alive in the race, though they're still four games behind the Bulldogs (17-8, 8-3) in the standings with five games left.

The Rebels picked up a rare win using its defense.
