OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Alexis Tolefree scored 19 points and Chelsea Dungee scored 18 and No. 23-ranked Arkansas disposed of Ole Miss 108-64 on Sunday to set an SEC single-game scoring record.

The Razorbacks also topped the century mark beating Kentucky 103-85 last week.

Arkansas (20-5, 8-4 Southeastern Conference) began to pull away from Ole Miss (7-18, 0-12) late in the first quarter. Taylor Smith buried a 3-pointer to bring the Rebels within 23-21 with 98 seconds left in the first. But in an 84-second span, Tolefree responded with three free throws, A'Tyanna Gaulden followed with a 3 created off a steal by Amber Ramirez and Tolefree ended the quarter with another 3 for a 32-23 advantage. The Razorbacks broke it open in the second and outscored Ole Miss 26-14.

Arkansas shot 23 of 33 (69.7%) in the first half, including 4 of 7 from 3-point range and made all eight of their free throw attempts. Nine Razorbacks entered the scoring column in the first half and registered at least two baskets. Arkansas finished 38 of 59 (64.4%) overall with 12 players scoring.

Taylor Smith led Ole Miss with 17 points, Iyanla Kitchens 15 and Mimi Reid 13. The Rebels have dropped 18 straight games in conference. The last time Ole Miss beat a league opponent was Feb. 14, 2019, at home, with a 65-60 win over Vanderbilt.
