Ole Miss rallies past Alabama 79-67

(Continued)

Ole Miss used a 16-5 run midway through the first half to build a commanding 26-13 lead. Summers connected on five free throws, two assists and a short jumper to highlight what proved to be the game's decisive surge.

The Crimson Tide closed within 64-58 on a Releford basket with 6:10 remaining, but the Rebels quickly answered with a 7-1 spurt that settled the issue. Alabama managed only three baskets the rest of the way.

"Yes it was," said Newby when asked if it was his best performance of the season. "I've always expected to play like that. I've tried to work hard and do the little things right and all you can do after that is hustle."

The Crimson Tide shot 20 of 48 (41.7 percent) from the field and 21 of 28 (75 percent) from the free-throw line. Hale was 7 of 12 from the field and 10 of 11 from the line and kept Alabama within striking distance.

Ole Miss was 24 of 58 (41.4 percent) from the field, but struggled from 3-point range, hitting just 5 of 21 (23.8 percent). The Rebels more than compensated by the strong showing on the boards and from the charity stripe.
