Doc Robinson hit his second consecutive game-winning shot, this time with 10 seconds left, to give Auburn a 68-67 upset win over 12th-ranked Ole Miss at Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum. With Auburn up 59-52 with 5:16 left, Ole Miss came storming back behind the strength of two Jason Flanigan (brother of former Auburn great Wes Flanigan) 3-pointers, the last with 28 seconds left to give the Rebels a 67-66 lead. After Robinson's game-winning shot, Ole Miss' Keith Carter missed a wide-open 3-pointer at the buzzer for the win. Robinson led four Tigers in double figures with 18 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists. Mamadou N'diaye had 15 points, 9 rebounds and a career-high 5 blocks. The Rebels' Ansu Sesay set a Coliseum record by making 16 free throws (17 att.) for a game-high 26 points. The Tiger defense held Ole Miss to 33 percent shooting, marking the 45th straight game of holding an opponent under 50 percent.
