Marshall Henderson's desperation heave beat the buzzer to force overtime, and Nick Williams' jumper put the Mississippi Rebels ahead to stay in rallying to beat Vanderbilt 89-79 Tuesday night for their sixth straight win. The Rebels (14-2, 3-0) extended the Southeastern Conference's longest winning streak by winning in Memorial Gym for the first time since 2001, and they had to do it by rallying from 13 points with 8:39 left. Kevin Bright hit the 17th 3 giving Vandy a 78-75 lead. Henderson flung the ball at the basket from about 35 feet away, and he ran around the court celebrating. Williams hit his jumper with 4:34 left in overtime, and the Rebels outscored Vanderbilt 11-1 in overtime to snap the Commodores' five-game winning streak in this series. Vanderbilt (6-9, 0-3) set a Memorial Gym record hitting 17 3-pointers but couldn't overcome poor free throw shooting (10 of 23).
