AP Game Recap

OXFORD, Miss. -- Reginald Buckner's career has been built on defense, and Mississippi's career blocked shots leader is usually good for a few poster-worthy swats each night.

But in a surprising twist to an old rivalry, the 6-foot-8 junior scored a career-high 19 points and grabbed 15 rebounds to help Mississippi upset Mississippi State (No. 15 ESPN/USA Today, No. 18 AP) 75-68 on Wednesday night at Tad Smith Coliseum.

"He was tremendous," Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said. "Obviously the difference in the game."

Nick Williams added 17 points, Jarvis Summers had 12 and Ole Miss (12-6, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) beat its in-state rival for the first time in six attempts.

Buckner is rarely a factor on offense, but scored with regularity against the Bulldogs, shooting 8 of 10 from the field as the Rebels shot 50 percent (27 of 54) as a team.

Renardo Sidney led Mississippi State (15-4, 2-2) with 17 points while shooting 6 of 12 from the field.
