OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Marshall Henderson scored 25 points, Murphy Holloway added 14 and Mississippi rallied for an 84-74 overtime victory over Georgia on Saturday night.

Ole Miss (19-6, 8-4) trailed for most of the night, but came back thanks to 10 straight points from Henderson late in the second half. Henderson made all 14 of his free-throw attempts and scored 20 points after halftime.

Ole Miss made 30 of 36 free-throw attempts, helping offset a poor shooting night from the field.

Georgia (12-13, 6-6) lost its second straight game. The Bulldogs had a chance to win the game in regulation, but Donte' Williams missed a contested tip-in attempt at the buzzer.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led Georgia with 19 points. Georgia made 28 of 58 shots from the field (48 percent).
