BLOG — All season long, Ole Miss senior Zach Graham has played second fiddle to fellow senior Chris Warren. That was not the case Wednesday night.Graham scored a career-high 30 points to lead the Rebels to a 90-59 win over Auburn at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. Graham was 9-for-15 from the field, including 7-for-11 from behind the 3-point line in the win that improved the Rebels to 17-9 overall and 5-6 in Southeastern Conference play heading into Saturday’s important tilt with Mississippi State in Starkville. Auburn dropped to 9-17 with the loss and 2-9 in the league.
Graham wasn’t the only hot hand for the Rebels, who shot 56.8 percent from the field despite not scoring for over five minutes in the first half. Ole Miss led 39-22 at the half and were never challenged by the Tigers after the Rebels went on a 19-4 run that gave them their 39 points. (February 16, 2011)
