LSU Rallies From 16 Down, Beats Vanderbilt 57-51

CREATED Mar 6, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Johnny O'Bryant scored 25 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as LSU rallied from a 16-point deficit in the first half to beat Vanderbilt 57-51 Thursday night for their second win in three games.

The Tigers (18-11, 9-8) also snapped a seven-game road skid in the Southeastern Conference with their first win away from home since Jan. 11. They overcame a poor shooting first half where they hit only 8 of 30 (26.7 percent) and survived two scoring droughts, the second that stretched 6:49.

Andre Stringer added 11 points for LSU.

Vanderbilt (15-14, 7-10) lost its third straight and fourth in five games with the two senior starters struggling to shoot on Senior Night. Rod Odom was 4 of 18 and finished with 15 points. Point guard Kyle Fuller missed his first seven shots and wound up 2 of 15 with seven points.
