ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Terrance Henry scored 24 points, Nick Williams and Murphy Holloway added 12 and Mississippi held off a late surge from Georgia for a 66-63 victory on Saturday.

The Rebels (13-6, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) have won two straight games.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope finished with 25 points and Gerald Robinson had 19 for Georgia (10-9, 1-4).

Ole Miss' Jarvis Summers made 1 of 2 free throws to give the Rebels a 10-point lead with 47 seconds remaining, but Henry and Summers showed why their school ranks last in SEC's free-throwing shooting, combining to miss their next four foul shots as Georgia twice cut the lead to two points in the final 23 seconds.

With 9 seconds left, Henry hit one free throw but missed the second attempt. Dustin Ware grabbed the rebound for Georgia and made a long pass to Robinson in the right corner, but Robinson's 3-point attempt bounced off the rim.
