DAYTON, Ohio - Mississippi is going to the regional final, and Courtney Paris is going home.

Armintie Price scored 31 points, Ashley Awkward added 25 for Ole Miss, which fast-breaked and trapped its way to a 90-82 win over Oklahoma on Sunday in the Dayton Regional.

The Lady Vols topped Ole Miss 81-69 at home on Feb. 15 in their only meeting this season.

Paris led Oklahoma (28-5) with 31 points and 20 rebounds.

Alliesha Easley added 12 points for the Rebels, who will be making their fifth trip to a regional championship game.
