Lamb leads No. 15 Kentucky past Ole Miss 75-66

ATLANTA (AP) - Doron Lamb scored 19 points and fellow freshman Brandon Knight had 17 to lead No. 15 Kentucky past Mississippi 75-66 in the Southeastern Conference tournament quarterfinals on Friday.

Knight made five free throws in the final 41 seconds as Kentucky (23-8), which never trailed, held off Ole Miss. The Rebels trailed 68-66 following Chris Warren's 3-pointer with 1:45 remaining, but didn't score again.

Warren had 20 points for Mississippi (20-13) but shot only 5 of 20 from the field.

Darius Miller had 15 points and Josh Harrellson 13 for Kentucky, which will play Alabama in Saturday's first semifinal.

Terrance Henry had 17 points and 12 rebounds and Dundrecous Nelson added 14 points for Ole Miss, which likely awaits a spot in the NIT.

Lamb, one of three freshmen starters, helped Kentucky continue an old tradition of SEC tournament success in Atlanta and against Ole Miss. Kentucky is 15-0 in the tournament against the Rebels.

    Go CATS! I love the fact that SOME people think that most of Cal's money comes from UK. Ignorance runs rampant. 90% of his money comes from boosters/alumni/endorsements. I agree with Edna. KY really deserves a good tourney run. They've struggled a good deal on the road but their playing has really been up a few notches lately. C-A-T-S! CATS! CATS! CATS!

    First of all Edna I have freedom of speech and I do wish Ky would lose and further more I wish Coach Cow would leave and give back some of the money hes taking from you loyal fans.

    Cant we find anything better to talk about. This bullcrap is sickning. I hope they get beat out in the first round but they probably wont because their first round game will be against school for the blind so everyone can make sure they advance
