LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Kedren Johnson scored 17 points and Rod Odom added 16 as Vanderbilt beat Texas El-Paso 73-49 in the consolation round Sunday at the Old Spice Classic.

Kyle Fuller added 14 points for Vanderbilt (2-3). The Commodores, looking to replace their top six scorers from last season's 25-win team, entered averaging 55.8 points a game.

John Bohannon had 11 points for the Miners (1-4), who have lost four in a row. The streak matches their longest skid under coach Tim Floyd.

Both teams lost their previous two games at the classic.

Vanderbilt was coming off a 50-33 loss Friday to Marist. The Commodores were also defeated 75-62 by Davidson. UTEP's losses came against Clemson (69-48) and Oklahoma (68-61).

Johnson's 3-pointer made it 57-36 with 7:30 to play. The guard, who had a career-high 28 points in Thursday's loss to Davidson, was held to four points one day later by Marist.
