Bost leads Miss. St. to 80-75 upset of Ole Miss

By Jeff Shepard – bio | email

OXFORD, MS (AP) - Dee Bost tied his career high with 25 points and fueled Mississippi State's 80-75 upset of No. 14 Ole Miss on Saturday with fearless drives to the basket.

Bost scored 17 points in the second half for the Bulldogs (13-3), drawing fouls as he attacked the paint against the Rebels (12-3) in the SEC opener for both teams.

The Bulldogs trailed 42-37 at halftime, but used runs of 8-2 and 13-2 to rally from as much as nine down.

His drives led to free throws and the Bulldogs hit 7 of 8 during the second run, finally taking a lead on a layup in transition from Bost to make it 61-59. Bost hit 9 of 12 free throws and overall Mississippi State was 22 for 33 in the game, far outpacing Ole Miss, which attempted just 13.

Chris Warren led Ole Miss with 15 points. Ravern Johnson added 15 for the Bulldogs, who have won 10 of 11 games, and Kodi Augustus had 13.
