NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Jeffery Taylor scored 18 of his 29 points in the first half, and the Vanderbilt Commodores rebounded hours after dropping out of the Top 25 rankings by beating Longwood 99-71 Monday night.
The Commodores (7-4) fell out of the 25th spot nationally after starting a three-game homestand by losing to Indiana State. That was their first game in 10 days due to exams so spread out that coach Kevin Stallings had trouble holding scheduled practices or having all Commodores on hand.
They needed the chance to just play, and they got that against a team that just finished moving up to Division I in 2007. John Jenkins scored 19 points for Vanderbilt. Lance Goulbourne added 15 and Brad Tinsley 12. Nine Commodores scored at least three points.
Antwan Carter and Tristan Carey each scored 20 points to lead Longwood (4-7). Jeremiah Bowman added 11.
