NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Dee Bost scored on a layup with 51.8 seconds left in overtime, and No. 18 Mississippi State edged Vanderbilt 78-77 Saturday night, snapping the Commodores' eight-game winning streak.
The Bulldogs (16-4, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) won in Memorial Gym for the first time since 2004 and snapped their own three-game skid in Nashville. They appeared headed toward another loss after trailing 39-28 at halftime.
Vanderbilt (14-5, 4-1) had plenty of chances but missed three shots after Bost's layup, the last a 3-point attempt by John Jenkins that hit the front of the rim just before the buzzer.
Bost scored 24 points, reserve Jalen Steele added 15, and Arnett Moultrie had his 11th double-double with 21 points and 14 rebounds. Jenkins led Vanderbilt with 21 points, Jeffery Taylor had 19, and Festus Ezeli had 12 points and 14 rebounds.
