UK holds on to beat Ole Miss 84-70

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Julius Randle had 25 points and 13 rebounds, Aaron Harrison added 17 points and No. 18 Kentucky beat Mississippi 84-70 on Tuesday night.

Kentucky (20-6, 10-3 Southeastern Conference) dominated throughout most of the game, going on a 15-0 run midway through the first half to take a 25-11 lead that proved insurmountable.

It was Randle's 14th double-double of the season. Kentucky was active in the paint and had several alley-oop dunks, jumping over the Rebels' overmatched defense. The Wildcats had seven dunks in the first half alone.

Ole Miss (16-10, 7-6) lost its third straight game and has almost completely fallen out of the picture for an at-large NCAA tournament berth. The Rebels had a bad shooting night and were steamrolled on the boards.

Jarvis Summers led Ole Miss with 22 points and Anthony Perez added 21.
