Commodores’ 12 three-pointers sink Mizzou at Vanderbilt
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Missouri Tigers have fallen out of the rankings, and now they’re sliding down the SEC standings. Last-place Vanderbilt buried Mizzou with a barrage of three-pointers and beat the Tigers 78-75 in Nashville.
The Commodores shot a season-high 32 threes, and connected on 12 of them. Mizzou has lost two of its last three games and drops to 1-2 in conference play.
The Commodores (9-6/1-2) made four of their first six three-pointers and jumped out to a 12-point lead four minutes into the game. The Tigers answered with an 8-0 run early in the second half to take a one-point lead.
They traded the lead a few times before Vandy pulled back in front to stay. With 2:00 minutes to go and Missouri trailing by only four, Rod Odom buried another three to put the Commodores ahead 66-59. Odom finished with 24. Jabari Brown led the Tigers with 22 points.
Mizzou (13-3/1-2) hosts Alabama on Saturday in Columbia.
