OXFORD, MS (AP) - Terrico White scored 17 points, Eniel Polynice added 13 and No. 20 Mississippi dominated Centenary 108-64 on Saturday.

The Rebels (10-1) won their sixth straight by blitzing the Gents (4-6) early, building a 24-2 lead to start the game, then maintaining focus throughout their most lopsided win of the season.

Ole Miss shot 67.7 percent from the field, by far their best shooting percentage of the season, and dominated in the paint with a 50-28 advantage over Centenary, a Summit League school that plans to drop to Division III next season.

It was the first time this season the Rebels surpassed 100 points.

Jerrald Bonham had 19 points for Centenary and Matt Marseille added 15.
