NCAA Basketball: Vanderbilt at Texas A&M Sean Pokorny-USA TODAY Sports

So when Texas A&M went on a 14-0 run late in the second half, well, we all had been here before.

Luckily Vanderbilt had built enough of a cushion that this one was never really in doubt. Texas A&M scored 33 points in the game’s first 31 minutes, and the Commodores held a 55-33 lead with 8:54 left. Even after the Aggies’ 14-0 run, Vanderbilt still had an 8-point lead, and a pair of three-pointers by Joe Toye and Jeff Roberson quickly put a stop to whatever chances Texas A&M had of making a comeback.

Vanderbilt improved to 11-11 on the season, 4-5 in the SEC. Five Commodores scored in double figures, with Luke Kornet and Matthew Fisher-Davis leading the way with 12 each. Clevon Brown set a career high with six points, and the freshman also had five boards. Vanderbilt returns to action on Saturday as Ole Miss comes to town; tipoff will be at 2:00 PM CT on ESPNU.
