Odom leads Vanderbilt over Georgia 59-54
VANDERBILT 59, GEORGIA 54

By BLAKE GILES
Associated Press

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Rod Odom scored 16 points on Wednesday night
as Vanderbilt defeated Georgia 59-54 and ended the Bulldogs'
eight-game home winning streak.

Odom scored Vanderbilt's (11-8, 3-4 SEC) last field goal with
3:23 to play, nailing a 3-pointer to put the Commodores up
44-36. Vanderbilt made 15 of 21 free throws the rest of the way
to thwart any comeback efforts by Georgia (10-9, 4-3).

Dai-Jon Parker scored 15 for Vanderbilt, and Kyle Fuller added
13 - 10 of those from the line.

Charles Mann led Georgia with 20 points, hitting 9 of 11 free
throws. The Bulldogs shot 27 percent from the field and a woeful
4 for 23 from behind the 3-point line.

Brandon Morris's 3-point basket 90 seconds into the game
launched Georgia to an early 8-2 lead. But the Bulldogs did not
make another 3 in the first half, missing 11 straight. The
streak reached 17 straight misses before Georgia hit three of
its last five 3-pointers in the last minute of a desperation
comeback attempt.

The teams were tied 12-12 after Morris hit one free throw with
10:17 to play, but Vanderbilt went on a 13-2 run, highlighted by
Odom's four-point play.

The Commodores twice led by as much as 10 points, the last time
at 27-17 after two free throws by Fuller with 4:51 to play.
Vanderbilt did not score again in the first half.

Georgia managed to narrow the gap to 27-21 with 3:42 to play,
and then the Bulldogs did not score again in the half.

Georgia took a different approach to start the second half as
point guard Mann started to penetrate, getting two early layups
and a free throw to help tie the game 28-all with 17:20 to go.

However, Vanderbilt regained the lead. The Commodores never put
together a dramatic run, but gradually pulled away from the
struggling Bulldogs.

Walk-on Taylor Echols hit a 3-pointer with 57.3 seconds to play
that closed the gap for the Bulldogs to 51-44. Another 3-pointer
by Mann with 15.8 seconds left cut it to 56-52, but an
intentional foul on Georgia's Kenny Paul Geno gave Vandy a
chance to ice the game with 3 of 4 free throws.

Morris added 12 points for Georgia, which had not lost a home
game since arch-rival Georgia Tech won 80-71 Nov. 15.
