ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) - Kyle Fuller made four free throws in the final minute and finished with 16 points as Vanderbilt held off Morgan State 75-66 Saturday in the Paradise Jam.

Damian Jones scored 13 points for Vanderbilt (3-2) and Eric McClellan added 12 -- all coming from behind the 3-point line. Rod Odom and Luke Kornet added 11 apiece. Vanderbilt grabbed 16 offensive rebounds and shot 45.2 percent for the game.

Justin Black scored 18 for Morgan State (0-6) and Ian Chiles added 15 and nine rebounds. Black's layup with 15:08 left pulled Morgan State within single digits at 45-37. Chiles' dunk moved Morgan State closer at 71-66.

But Fuller sealed the game for Vanderbilt, making all four of his free throw attempts with just seconds left.

Vanderbilt will face Loyola Marymount in the fourth-place game on Monday.
