Sophomore guard Austin Crowley had eight points and set career highs with 10 rebounds and four steals. Devontae Shuler, who went into the game averaging a team-high 14.3 points, scored just seven but had a career-best 10 assists and two steals for Ole Miss (6-3, 1-1 Southeastern Conference). The 6-foot-2 junior moved past Gerald Glass into fifth on the program's all-time steals list with 160.
Auburn made seven of its first 11 field-goal attempts and Chris Moore made a layup to cap a 7-0 spurt that made it one-point game about 8 minutes into the game but the Tigers missed their next seven shots. Ole Missed used an 18-5 run — including two 3-pointers by Sy — to make it 35-21 with 5 minutes left in the first half and led by at least eight points the rest of the way.
The Tigers committed 16 turnovers and Ole Miss, which went forcing 19.3 turnovers per game (No. 12 nationally), tied its season high with 11 steals. The Rebels have forced at least 15 turnovers in every game this season.
Auburn, despite its hot start, shot just 36% (22 of 61) overall.
