Devontae Shuler and Romello White combined for 42 points while each shooting over 50% from the floor, but the Vanderbilt Commodores found success from their bench and from long range as they upset the Ole Miss 75-70 in Memorial Gymnasium Saturday afternoon.
The Rebels shot 44% from the floor with Shuler leading the way with 25 points followed by White’s 17 points to go along with 8 rebounds. Despite Ole Miss having the edge on the glass (33-30) and in the paint (30 of 26) in large part to the starting five, the Commodores used their depth by outscoring the Rebel bench 39-4.
Trey Thomas, Isaac McBride and DJ Harvey combined for 37 points off the bench, including nine three-pointers as each reached double figures, making the difference in the Music City.
