AP Game Recap

STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Malik Newman scored 20 of his career-high 25 points in the second half to lead Mississippi State to an 83-77 victory over Mississippi on Saturday.

Quinndary Weatherspoon added 18 points for the Bulldogs (8-10, 1-5 SEC), who snapped a four-game losing skid against the Rebels, and avoided its first 0-6 conference start since 1985-86.

Gavin Ware had 14 points and Craig Sword added 10 with five assists Mississippi State.

"Obviously, it's a big win for our guys," Mississippi State coach Ben Howland said. "Malik was fantastic and he absolutely took the game over in the second half. "I.J. (Ready) didn't start the second half because of foul trouble and Malik did well as the lead guard."

Rasheed Brooks scored 20 points and Donte Fitzpatrick-Dorsey added 16 for Mississippi (12-7, 2-5), which has lost four straight.
