Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Kedren Johnson scored 15 points to lead Vanderbilt over Auburn 73-61 on Wednesday night.

Four players scored in double figures to help the Commodores (8-9, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) win consecutive games for the first time in more than a month.

The Tigers (8-10, 2-3) cut the deficit to five points twice in the second half before Vanderbilt used the long ball to sprint away. Kyle Fuller, Sheldon Jeter and Kevin Bright each drained 3-pointers during a 13-3 run. Rod Odom emphatically capped off the spurt with a two-handed dunk after Josh Henderson found him streaking to the basket for a 52-37 lead with 12:28 left.

Fuller scored 14 points, Bright added 12 and Jeter had 10 as the Commodores won their seventh straight against Auburn.

Rob Chubb and Frankie Sullivan each scored 14 points and Brian Greene Jr. added 11 for the Tigers, who have dropped three straight.
