AUBURN, AL (AP) - Chris Warren scored 20 points and Terrico White had 19, leading No. 18 Ole Miss to an 84-74 victory over Auburn on Thursday night.

The Rebels (16-4, 4-2 SEC) shot 57 percent and got 53 points from their three starting guards, including 14 from Eniel Polynice. They have already matched last season's win total and won back-to-back league road games for the first time since 2001.

The Tigers (10-11, 1-5) stayed in it with 3-pointers but cooled off in the second half, launching 36 and making 11 in the game.

White and Terrance Henry hit consecutive 3s to start a 10-0 run that put Ole Miss up 78-65 with 4:26 left. Before that surge, the Rebels' biggest lead was six points.

Warren shot 4 of 7 from beyond the arc. He and Polynice each dished out five assists.
