NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Rod Odom scored 15 points, and the Vanderbilt Commodores beat Arkansas 67-49 Saturday to snap a four-game losing skid and get a bit of payback for one of their ugliest losses this season.
Vanderbilt (9-13, 3-7 Southeastern Conference) managed only 11 points by halftime and matched a season-low while losing 56-33 to Arkansas on Jan. 12 in Fayetteville. This time, the Commodores held Arkansas to a season-low in scoring. They also built their biggest halftime lead in SEC play at 35-24 and finally protected a lead by finishing off the win.
Sheldon Jeter added 13 points and Josh Henderson had 11.
Arkansas (14-9, 5-5) failed to follow up its 80-69 upset of No. 2 Florida on Tuesday, and the Razorbacks remain winless in true road games. They've lost all six, including their first four league games.
Mardracus Wade led Arkansas with 13 points. Marshawn Powell played only three minutes of the first half after picking up two quick fouls, and the junior forward who had been averaging 15.1 points a game finished with five points before fouling out with 3:20 to go.
