NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Juvonte Reddic scored 18 points and grabbed 11 rebounds Sunday and Virginia Commonwealth ended Belmont's nation-leading 23-game home win streak 81-68.

Melvin Johnson, who hit four 3-pointers, and Treveon Graham, each scored 16 for the Rams (6-2). VCU had fallen from the AP Top 25 last Monday after two losses the previous week.

Blake Jenkins and J.J. Mann each scored 14 points for Belmont (7-2), Drew Windler scored 13, Caleb Chowbay, 12, and Evan Bradds, 10.

Johnson sank three 3-pointers during a 22-2 run that gave VCU a 66-52 advantage with 6:05 remaining. The Rams had hit three straight treys, the other by JeQuan Lewis (12 points), to retake the lead 53-50 after Belmont went ahead 46-44.

VCU overcame a 12-point deficit to go up 38-35 at halftime, taking its first lead on Graham's 3-pointer. Graham scored eight of his 12 first-half points during a 12-4 run before the half.
