    OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Dwayne Curtis scored 20 points, including two free throws with 19 seconds left, to lift Mississippi to a 74-72 win over Arkansas on Saturday.

    Mississippi (12-5, 1-2 Southeastern Athletic Conference) blew a 14-point lead with eight minutes remaining, but rallied from a 72-71 deficit in the final 30 seconds.

    Arkansas (12-5, 1-2) misfired on a lob pass for the potential game-tying basket in the final 10 seconds. The Razorbacks have dropped 10 of their last 11 games in Oxford.

    Curtis finished 8-of-15 from the field and added a game-high 12 rebounds. Clarence Sanders and Todd Abernethy had 13 points apiece and Bam Doyne added 11 for the Rebels.

    Charles Thomas scored 23 points for the Razorbacks, including eight straight points to give Arkansas a 72-71 lead with 30 seconds remaining. Patrick Beverley added 15 points and five assists.

    Arkansas shot 51 percent from the field, but could not overcome 21 turnovers.

    Ole Miss struggled from the field, hitting 43 percent.

    The Rebels led 38-30 at halftime, using a late 16-4 run and built their biggest lead, 63-49, on a three-point shot by Brian Smith with 8:11 left.

    Arkansas answered with a 16-2 run to pull into a 65-65 tie on a Sonny Weems layup with 4:05 left.
