Vandy (0-2) closed to within 51-48 on a three-point play by Quentin Millora-Brown with 3:52 remaining, but the Commodores did not score again, going 0-for-10 from the field.

Jordan Wright was the only Vanderbilt player to reach double figures in scoring, with 12 points off the bench. Among the starters, Colin Smith had nine points and 10 rebounds, and Myles Stute had 11 rebounds but only four points.
