NEW YORK (RNN) – The Ole Miss Rebels (5-0) may end up the kings of Brooklyn by the end of the weekend.

In the semifinals of the Barclays Center Classic, the Rebels beat the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (5-2) 77-67, advancing to the finals.

Three Rebels scored in double digits, including 15 points and 13 rebounds from center Demarco Cox. Guards Derrick Millinghaus and Marshall Henderson scored 16 and 15 points, respectively.

Cox's 13 rebounds were a part of 40 the Rebels collected – but Georgia Tech still out-rebounded them by two. The Rebels had a better night shooting, however, going 43.5 percent from field goal range compared to Tech's 36.5 percent.

This game marks the first time Georgia Tech and Ole Miss have played each other since Jan. 11, 1964. The Yellow Jackets lead the all-time series 11-9.

The Rebels will play St. John's in the tournament championship on Saturday.
