LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) – Terrance Henry scored 18 points and Murphy Holloway had 15, but Ole Miss fell at No. 1 Kentucky 77-62 on Saturday afternoon. 

Terrence Jones had 15 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Wildcats, who won their 50th consecutive game at home. 

The Wildcats (26-1, 11-0 Southeastern Conference) are 49-0 at home under Head Coach John Calipari as part of the nation’s longest active home winning streak. 

Kentucky took an early 16-5 lead, but the Rebels took advantage of freshman center Anthony Davis sitting for much of the first half because of foul trouble. Ole Miss forwards Henry and Holloway took the ball inside without the nation’s leading shot blocker looming. Henry, who had 16 points in the first half, helped the Rebels (15-11, 5-7) take a 31-29 lead.

But the Wildcats hit three straight 3-pointers to take a 43-35 halftime, and they never trailed in the second half. 

Jelan Kendrick tied a career high with 11 points for the Rebels, who play at Tennessee on Wednesday.
