NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Kyle Fuller scored all 10 of his points in the final 6:22 to help host Vanderbilt defeat neighboring Austin Peay 58-56 on Tuesday night.

Freshman Damian Jones scored 12 points, and Rod Odom added 11 points and nine rebounds for the Commodores (6-3).

Chris Horton's 16 points and 10 rebounds led the Governors (5-6), while Will Triggs chipped in 11 points.

Fuller sank a pair of free throws with 15.8 seconds remaining for a 57-53 advantage. But Travis Betran hit a long 3-pointer to trim it to 58-56 before Fuller hit his final foul shot with 8.2 seconds left. Peay missed a chance at the buzzer.

Demarius Smith's 3-pointer pulled Austin Peay even at 50-50, but Fuller made a steal and drove the lane for the go-ahead score. After a James Siakam block, Fuller's first free throws gave the Commodores a 54-50 lead with 1:23 to play.
