NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Rod Odom scored a career-high 24 points, hitting six 3-pointers, and the short-handed Vanderbilt Commodores beat Missouri 78-75 Thursday night in the Tigers' first visit to Memorial Gym as a member of the Southeastern Conference.

Vanderbilt (9-6, 1-2) snapped a two-game skid by avoiding foul trouble and hitting a season-high 12 3-pointers. The Commodores are down to seven scholarship players after leading scorer Eric McClellan first was suspended from the university, then kicked off the team for good last week. They lost their first two games without McClellan.

Missouri (13-3, 1-2) now has lost two of three. The Tigers were looking for their third road win this season trying to work their way back into the Top 25.

Kyle Fuller added 22 points for Vanderbilt. Dai-Jon Parker had 11, and Damian Jones added 10.

Jabari Brown scored 22 points for Missouri, while Jordan Clarkson had 18 and Ross 11.
