The SEC showdown between the LSU Tigers and Ole Miss Rebels was a thriller for the first 40 minutes, but the Rebels controlled the overtime to earn the win. The result puts Ole Miss at 2-1 in conference play and drops the Tigers to 1-2.
The first half went back and forth with the Rebels owning a slim three-point lead at the break.
In the second half we saw each team go on little runs where they tried to take control of the game, but neither could shake the opposition.
With 32 seconds left LSU led by two points, but that is when Jarvis Summers hit a jumper to tie the game at 69. Anthony Hickey missed on a chance to win the game for the Tigers in regulation as the two SEC west teams went to overtime.
The extra frame was all all Ole Miss as the Rebels outscored the Tigers 19-5 in the extra frame to walk away with a 88-74 victory.
Andre Stringer shot lights out for the Tigers finishing the night with 23 points on 7-of-10 shooting, including 5-of-8 from deep. However, he disappeared in overtime as he missed both of his shot attempts.
LSU will try to even their SEC record when they host the Vanderbilt Commodores on Saturday.
