STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Colin Borchert scored a career-high 21 points, Gavin Ware added 12 and Mississippi State beat Mississippi 73-67 on Saturday to break a 13-game losing streak.

Mississippi State (8-20, 3-13 Southeastern Conference) ended nearly two months of misery with the victory. The Bulldogs led almost the entire game, pushing back every Ole Miss rally in the second half.

Roquez Johnson returned from a three-game suspension to score 10 points for Mississippi State.

Ole Miss (21-8, 10-6) lost for the sixth time in 10 games. Murphy Holloway led the Rebels with 22 points and 19 rebounds. The SEC's leading scorer Marshall Henderson had 16 points, but shot just 4 of 19 from the field, including 3 of 18 from 3-point range.

The Rebels shot just 25 of 74 (33.8 percent) from the field.

Ole Miss jumped out to an early 5-0 lead, but then it was Mississippi State that was the aggressor.

Borchert hit 3 of 4 3-point attempts on the way to 11 first-half points, helping the Bulldogs build a 34-30 halftime lead.

The 6-foot-8 junior was terrific for most of the night, finishing from long range and close to the rim.
