OXFORD, Miss. -

Scottie Wilbekin scored 18 points, Michael Frazier II added 17 and No. 2 Florida rallied to beat Mississippi 75-71 on Saturday.

The Gators (25-2, 14-0 Southeastern Conference) extended their school-record winning streak to 19 games. Ole Miss (16-11, 7-7) has lost four in a row.

Florida survived a hot start from the Rebels' Marshall Henderson, who scored 22 points in the first half but was then held scoreless. Jarvis Summers added 20 points for Ole Miss.

The game was tied at 59 with eight minutes left, but Florida scored the next six points to take control.

The Gators could very well be the No. 1 team in the country when the new polls are released on Monday. The current No. 1 Syracuse lost on Wednesday to Boston College.
