GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - John Jenkins scored 18 points, A.J.
Ogilvy added 16 and No. 13 Vanderbilt beat Florida 64-60 on Tuesday
night, delivering a blow to the Gators' NCAA tournament hopes.
Jermaine Beal chipped in 13 points for the Commodores, including
two key free throws with 6.2 seconds remaining.
Vanderbilt (23-6, 12-3 Southeastern Conference) swept the season
series for the first time since 1997 and stayed in the hunt for the
league's regular-season title. The Commodores need No. 3 Kentucky
to lose its remaining two games to have a chance.
Vernon Macklin led the Gators (20-10, 9-6) with 21 points and
nine rebounds. No other Florida player scored in double digits, the
biggest problem for a team trying to get back to the NCAA
tournament for the first time in three years.
