AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Kedren Johnson scored 16 points and Kevin Bright had 14 to lead Vanderbilt to a 62-55 victory over Auburn on Saturday night.

The Commodores (13-15, 7-9 Southeastern Conference) recovered after the Tigers (9-20, 3-13) whittled a 14-point lead down to four several times in the second half.

Johnson had eight assists and five rebounds for Vanderbilt, which has won 4 of its last five games. Johnson hit four straight free throws and Josh Henderson and Dai-Jon Parker each made a pair in the final 50 seconds. Henderson scored 11 points.

Bright, who hit the game-winner against Georgia on Wednesday night, made 4 of 5 3-pointers and had eight rebounds.

Chris Denson led Auburn with 16 points off the bench.

It's the third 20-loss season in Auburn history and the second in Tony Barbee's three seasons. The Tigers have lost 13 of their last 14 games.
