Ole Miss edges Texas Tech in 2 OTs

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Murphy Holloway converted a three-point play with three seconds left in the second overtime Tuesday to give Mississippi a 90-87 win over Texas Tech in the quarterfinals of the National Invitation Tournament.

Tied 87-87 with 8.7 seconds left, Ole Miss point guard Chris Warren took the inbound pass, drove the length of the floor and found Holloway streaking down the left baseline. Holloway converted the acrobatic layup while fouled and hit the free throw.

Ole Miss (24-10) advanced to the NIT semifinals for the second time in three seasons and improved to 11-1 in NIT home games. The Rebels will face the Illinois-Dayton winner at Madison Square Garden.

Warren led the Rebels with 22 points, while Terrico White and Holloway added 17 points apiece and Zach Graham had 10.

Texas Tech (19-16) had opportunities to win in regulation and in the first overtime, but missed the final shot on both occasions.

Mike Singletary led the Red Raiders with 28 points, while Brad Reese added 14, all in the second half. D'walyn Roberts scored 12 points and had a game-high 17 rebounds.
