NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jasmine Lister scored 25 points, including a trio of 3-pointers and 10-for-10 shooting from the foul line, to lift No. 24 Vanderbilt to a 79-70 upset win over No. 14 LSU on Sunday.

Christina Foggie contributed 19 points and Morgan Batey had 11 for Vanderbilt (16-3, 5-1 SEC), which shot 52 percent from the field in toppling its second ranked team in as many weeks.

The Commodores broke open the game in the second half, carving out its first double-digit lead with an 11-4 run fueled by a layup and four free throws from Kylee Smith that made it 48-35 with 12:08 to go. Vandy scored 12 of the next 18 points over the next 4 minutes to build a lead it would protect against an LSU rally down the stretch.

Danielle Ballard led the Lady Tigers (14-4, 3-2) with 23 points and seven rebounds.
