AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - John Jenkins scored 22 points and No. 18
Vanderbilt used a dominant second-half stretch to turn a tie game
into a 77-60 rout over Auburn on Saturday.

The Commodores (20-6, 8-4 SEC) went on a 23-4 run after Auburn
(9-17, 2-10) managed to tie it six minutes into the second half.
Their fifth straight victory gave Vandy its sixth 20-win season
during coach Kevin Stallings' 12 seasons.

Jenkins hit 5 of 11 3-pointers and scored 16 in the second half.
Jeffery Taylor had 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Commodores
while Brad Tinsley scored 16. Ezeli Festus only had six points but
also blocked five shots.

Earnest Ross led Auburn with 19 points and Kenny Gabriel added
13. They were a combined 10-of-18 shooting while the rest of the
team made just 12 of 32 attempts.
