BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Tim Quarterman had 18 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, and LSU pulled into a fourth-place tie in the Southeastern Conference with a 73-63 victory over Mississippi on Saturday.
Quarterman's triple-double was the first by an LSU player since Shaquille O'Neal did it against BYU in the 1992 NCAA tournament.
Jarell Martin added 18 points and Keith Hornsby 16 for the Tigers (21-8, 10-6 SEC), who won their third straight overall while sweeping the two-game season series with Ole Miss.
Jordan Mickey added 11 points - all in the second half - and blocked four shots.
Stefan Moody scored 15 and Sebastian Saiz 11 for Ole Miss (19-10, 10-6), which came in with a school-record four straight road victories in SEC play.
LSU pulled even with both Ole Miss and Georgia in the league standings. The top four seeds get a double-bye in the SEC tournament.
