OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Theresa Plaisance scored 23 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as No. 15 LSU held Mississippi without a point over the final three-and-a-half minutes of the game to secure a 66-56 win on Sunday.

Diara Moore's two free throws with 3:44 left to play cut the LSU lead to a single point, 57-56, but the Rebels missed their last six shots, three from 3-point range while LSU converted 5 of 6 from the free throw line in the final minute.

Plaisance' layup with 2:02 left gave the Tigers some breathing room, 59-56, and Shanece McKinney followed with another layup with 1:13 left to make it 61-56.

Danielle Ballard added 12 points and McKinney contributed 10 for LSU (16-4, 5-2 SEC).

Moore led Ole Miss (10-11, 1-6) with 17 points. Tia Faleru and Valencia McFarland added 12 and 10 points, respectively.
