DULUTH, Ga. (AP) -- Kenyotta Jenkins scored a go-ahead layup with 4 seconds remaining, Tia Faleru added 16 points and Mississippi beat Arkansas 63-62 in the first round of the Southeastern Conference tournament Wednesday night.

No. 11 seed Arkansas led by 10 on Jessica Jackson's jumper, but the Razorbacks were outscored 13-2 in the final 4:45.

Valencia McFarland and Diara Moore each added 14 points for No. 14 seed Ole Miss.

The Rebels (12-19) went up 63-62 after Faleru missed a jumper, Moore grabbed the rebound and fed Jenkins inside.

The game ended as Jackson, who had 21 points and 11 rebounds, missed a 16-footer at the buzzer.

The Rebels will play No. 6 seed Auburn Thursday.

Arkansas (19-11) lost its first SEC tournament game for the eighth time in the last nine years.
