TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Jeffery Taylor made 1-of-2 free throws
with 6 seconds left to help Vanderbilt complete a come-from-behind
65-64 victory over Alabama on Wednesday night.

The Crimson Tide's Anthony Brock then missed a shot in traffic
and JaMychal Green couldn't control the ball for a follow-up
attempt as the final seconds ticked off with the Commodores (13-3,
2-0 Southeastern Conference) claiming their seventh consecutive
win.

Jermaine Beal's jumper gave Vandy a 64-62 lead with 47 seconds
left. Green tied it with two free throws 11 seconds later after
starting 1-of-5 from the line.

Then Tony Mitchell fouled Taylor, who missed his first shot
before putting the Commodores ahead after they trailed by 10 points
2 minutes into the second half.

Alabama (11-5, 1-1) had won four straight games by an average of
15 points.
