Reginald Buckner scored 18 points, Derrick Millinghaus had 16,Murphy Holloway 15 and Nick Williams 11 to lead a balanced attack for Ole Miss (11-2). The Rebels shot 50 percent from the field (33 of 66) and forced 22 Fordham turnovers.

The Rams led 14-13 in the opening seven minutes before scoring runs of 10-0 and 12-0 helped Ole Miss build a 46-35 halftime lead.

Fordham never seriously threatened in the second half. Ole Miss led by as many as 30 points, 91-61 with 3:22 left, after the second of two free throws by Williams.

The Rebels finished 22 of 27 (81.5 percent) from the free throw line and 7 of 16 (43.8 percent) from 3-point range, including three apiece from Henderson and Millinghaus.
