OXFORD, Miss., Jan. 30 (UPI) -- Chris Warren led the way with 20 points Wednesday and Mississippi rolled over slumping Vanderbilt 74-58.

The 22nd-ranked Rebels bounced back from Southeastern Conference road losses at Auburn and Mississippi State, while the Commodores have lost all four of their league road games.

Eniel Polynice added 18 points for Mississippi (6-3, 3-3 SEC). Kenny Williams had 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Vanderbilt (17-4, 2-4) was led by 14 points from Shan Foster. The Commodores were coming off their most one-sided defeat of the season, an 86-64 setback to Florida last weekend.

Mississippi owned a three-point halftime advantage and then went on a 15-5 run to open the second period. Vanderbilt closed its deficit to four points with 11:27 remaining only to have the Rebels quickly boost the advantage back to double digits.

Mississippi is 10-1 at home this season and is 26-1 in Oxford since Coach Andy Kennedy took over the team last season.
