LSU Holds Off Vanderbilt, 57-56

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Anthony Hickey scored 14 points and LSU hung on for its third-straight victory, 57-56 over Vanderbilt on Wednesday night.

Johnny O'Bryant III added 10 points for the Tigers (13-7, 4-5), who led by as many as 12 early in the second half before Vanderbilt (8-13, 2-7) methodically pulled as close as 55-53 on Rod Odom's 3-pointer with 10 seconds left.

O'Bryant then made a pair of critical free throws for a four-point cushion which rendered Odom's 3 in the final seconds meaningless.

Odom finished with a game-high 20 points. Dai-Jon Parker added 11 points and nine rebounds for Vanderbilt, which has lost four straight.

LSU, which has now won four of five, exploded for an 18-2 run that gave the Tigers a 31-18 halftime lead.
