NASHVILLE — Rod Odom hit two free throws with 3.4 seconds left as the Vanderbilt Commodores held off Tennessee 64-60 Wednesday night for their fourth straight victory.
Odom finished with 26 points, and Kyle Fuller added 12 points and 10 assists for Vanderbilt (13-8, 5-4 Southeastern Conference). The Commodores snapped a three-game skid to their in-state rival.
Tennessee (14-8, 5-4) came in having won two straight overall and five of the last six in this series. The Volunteers wanted to get the Commodores with their seven healthy scholarship players into foul trouble, but they didn't get Vanderbilt to pile up enough fouls with only Damian Jones fouling out.
Jordan McRae scored 16 points, Josh Richardson added 14 points and Jarnell Stokes 11 and 14 rebounds.
Vanderbilt outshot Tennessee 52.2 percent (24 of 46) to 37.7 percent (23 of 61) with a 34-22 edge in the paint despite being outrebounded.
