Mississippi beats Wisconsin 57-46 in NCAA tourneySubmitted: 03/22/2013
Story By Associated Press

KANSAS CITY - Marshall Henderson shook out of a shooting slump and scored 17 points in the second half, leading 12th-seeded Mississippi past No. 5 Wisconsin 57-46 on Friday, giving the Rebels their first NCAA tournament win since 2002.

For the cold-shooting Badgers (23-12), the upset loss snaps a string of six straight first-game victories. Ole Miss (27-8) trailed 25-22 at halftime and Henderson, who led the Southeastern Conference with 20 points a game, had only two points on one-for-11 shooting.

But the flamboyant and outspoken guard found his touch just in time for Ole Miss, and wound up hitting 6 of 21. His back-to-back 3-pointers tied it 36-36 and his layup and two free throws in the final minute sealed the win.


Reginald Buckner had nine points and 12 rebounds. Sam Dekkar had 14 points for Wisconsin.

In the third round of the West Regional on Sunday, the Rebels will play No. 13 La Salle.
