    OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Quan Prowell scored 25 points as Auburn beat Mississippi 90-78 Saturday to snap a five-game losing streak.

    The Tigers (13-10, 3-7 Southeastern Conference), shooting a season-best 63 percent from the floor, also got 23 points from Dewayne Reed and 15 points apiece from Rasheem Barrett and Frank Tolbert.

    Trevor Gaskins had 15 points for Ole Miss (17-7, 3-7), which dropped its fourth consecutive Southeastern Conference game and the sixth in its last seven. David Huertas and Eniel Polynice had 13 points apiece.

    Auburn took a 53-51 lead on a 3-point shot by Tolbert with 15:32 left and never trailed again. Auburn gradually pulled away and Ole Miss never got closer than seven points in the final 8 minutes.

    Reed hit four 3-pointers and the Tigers were 10 of 20 on 3-point field goals, mirroring their play in an 80-77 win last month that sent the Rebels on their current skid. Once ranked as high as 17th in the nation, the Rebels are 4-7 since setting a school record with a 13-0 start.

    Ole Miss led 43-42 at halftime, closing with a 19-9 run in the final 5 minutes. Huertas scored 11 points in the late flurry, wiping out 12-point leads by Auburn on two occasions.

    The Rebels took their biggest lead, 47-42, with 18 minutes remaining, but Auburn responded with an 18-6 surge to take control.
