OXFORD, Miss. -- Marshall Henderson scored 24 points, LaDarius White added 17 and Mississippi beat Alabama 87-83 on Tuesday night.

Ole Miss (22-8, 11-6 Southeastern Conference) won eight of nine home games in conference play. The Rebels never trailed after the opening minutes and held a double-digit advantage for almost the entire game until Alabama made a late charge.

Henderson bounced back after a terrible shooting performance on Saturday in a loss to Mississippi State. The 6-foot-2 guard made 6 of 13 shots from the field and 9 of 11 free throws. Jarvis Summers added 14 points for the Rebels.

Alabama (19-11, 11-6) had a huge 41-25 rebounding advantage but allowed Ole Miss to shoot 55.1 percent (27 of 49) from the field. Trevor Lacey led the Tide with 19 points while Nick Jacobs added 18.
