DeWanna Bonner became Auburn's career scoring leader, and the No. 6 Tigers held on for a 71-65 victory over Mississippi on Friday in the quarterfinals of the Southeastern Conference tournament.
Bonner finished with 32 points, giving the senior 2,084 for her career. Becky Jackson, who played during the early 1980s, held the previous record at 2,068.
Bonner tied Jackson's mark with a soft bank shot early in the second half, then broke it moments later with a contested shot from about 6 feet that gave the Tigers (28-2) a 46-29 lead.
Ole Miss (17-14) rallied within 66-63 in the final minute, but Whitney Boddie sank a baseline shot to push the lead back to five. Shantell Black's driving layup made it 68-65, but Bonner was fouled and made two free throws with 19.7 seconds left.
