FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Chelsea Dungee scored a season-high 38 points, Amber Ramirez added 19 and No. 18 Arkansas beat Mississippi 84-74 on Friday night.

Dungee, whose career high is 41 points, made 11 of 22 from the field and 14 of 17 from the free-throw line. Ramirez was 7-of-12 shooting and had three steals.

Ole Miss scored the first nine points of the fourth quarter to trim its deficit to 64-60 with 7:42 remaining, but Dungee answered with a pair of free throws to spark a 10-1 run over the next three minutes and the Rebels got no closer.

Arkansas (16-7, 6-6) shot 56% from the field and made 25 of 33 foul shots.

Ole Miss outrebounded the Razorbacks 39-24, including 16-2 on the offensive glass, and outscored Arkansas 24-3 in second-chance points.

The game was originally scheduled for Thursday before being postponed until Friday due to icy weather in the region.
