Phil Pressey had four assists to break Anthony Peeler's school record and had 22 points for Missouri (17-6, 6-4 Southeastern Conference), which bounced back from its latest discouraging road loss, a 1-point setback at Texas A&M on Thursday. The Tigers are 14-0 at home and 0-5 on the road.
Marshall Henderson had 16 points on 4-for-15 shooting for Mississippi (18-5, 7-3), which was on the verge of cracking the Top 25 last week but has lost three of four. Jarvis Summers also had 16 points, while Murphy Holloway, coming off a career-best 24 points, was held to seven in 30 minutes.

AUSTIN, Texas — Marcus Smart scored 23 points and Oklahoma State cruised past struggling Texas for the Cowboys' fifth straight win.
Markel Brown added 17 points for the Cowboys (17-5, 7-3 Big 12), who sputtered offensively for long stretches but used their own tough defense to clamp down on the Longhorns.
The Cowboys shot 38 percent from the field. Smart found just enough room inside and out to carry the Cowboys past a Texas team having its worst season in 15 years under coach Rick Barnes.
Ioannis Papapetrou scored 15 points to lead Texas (10-13, 2-8). The Longhorns shot 1 of 18 from 3-point range and were just 12 of 21 from the free throw line.
