SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - Terence Smith scored 16 points, M.J. Rhett added 14 and Mississippi coasted to a 82-51 victory over Southeast Missouri on Monday night.

Smith and Rhett both had season-highs in points. Ole Miss (8-3) was in control from the beginning, jumping out to a 19-4 lead after making eight of its first 10 attempts from the field.

It was Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy's 200th career victory. He reached the mark in 10 seasons - nine with the Rebels and one at Cincinnati.

The Rebels' final margin of 31 points was their largest of the game, but they led by double figures throughout the second half. They've won three of their past four games.

Southeast Missouri (5-7) couldn't dig out of the early hole and never led. Jarekious Bradley led the Redhawks with 10 points.
