The Texas Aggie basketball team jumped out to an early 7-0 lead, but could not hold the advantage as Vanderbilt quickly recovered and went on to the easy 63-56 win in Nashville. The Aggies remain on the road to face Auburn on Wednesday.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Rod Odom scored 19 points and Dai-Jon Parker added a career-high 17 points to lead Vanderbilt to a 63-56 victory over Texas A&M on Saturday night.

Parker made a personal-best five 3-pointers as the Commodores (10-14, 4-8 Southeastern Conference) won the first meeting between the schools since 1955.

Vanderbilt used a 20-6 run spanning the first and second halves to pull away from the Aggies (15-10, 5-7). Parker followed his final 3-pointer with a nifty reverse layup for the largest lead of the game, 46-33, with 8:37 left.

Texas A&M stormed back and closed the gap to 56-51 with 1:29 remaining. But Odom drained his career-high tying fourth 3-pointer to halt the rally.

Josh Henderson chipped in 11 for the Commodores, who had lost five of six.

Elston Turner, coming off a 37-point performance against Mississippi on Wednesday, scored 14 points and Ray Turner added 10 for Texas A&M.
