Butler extended the lead to 50-34 in the second half before Ole Miss closed the gap to four with 9:11 to play in the game. But the Bulldog defense held the hosts scoreless over the next six minutes to push the lead back to 10 points.

The Bulldogs, now 8-0, will host Florida at Hinkle Fieldhouse Saturday at noon.
