OXFORD LaToya Thomas scored 31 points and Jennifer Fambrough had 15 to lead No. 21 Mississippi State to a 60-55 win over homestanding Ole Miss Thursday night.
Ole Miss (11-3, 0-3 Southeastern Conference) dominates the 27-year-old rivalry 52-7, but has lost five straight to the Lady Bulldogs (11-4, 1-2).
Thomas, a sophomore forward averaging 24.2 points per game, made a basket with less than four minutes remaining in the first half to become the second-fastest SEC player to reach 1,000 points. She also became the fastest in MSU history to reach the milestone.

The Lady Rebels kept the game close throughout.
Von Kirk completed a 3-point play with 8:15 remaining to cut a Mississippi State lead to 40-39.
Tywanna Inmon, who led the Lady Rebels with 10 points, tied the game at 46 on a steal and basket about two minutes later.
But Mississippi State's Cynthia Hall hit a 3-pointer with about 3:45 left to make it 51-48.
Thomas closed the game with a free throw after a layup by Becky Myatt cut it to 59-55 with eight seconds left.
Ole Miss trailed the contest 28-22 at the half.
Thomas was 10-of-17 from the field and also had seven rebounds for Mississippi State.
Hall was 3-of-5 from 3-point range, but the Lady Bulldogs finished just 3-of-14 from behind the arc.
