    NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Rod Odom scored 18 points -- including four 3-pointers -- and Vanderbilt rallied from 14 points down in the first half to end Georgia Tech's three-game win streak 76-63 on Saturday.

    Dai-Jon Parker added 13 points and a pair of treys, while Kyle Fuller came off the bench to score 12 points for the Commodores (7-3).

    Daniel Miller had 11 of his 16 points in the first half for the Yellow Jackets (8-4). He then went 27 minutes without a field goal, scoring his final five points in the last 3 minutes of the game. Miller, who has started all 105 games in his Tech career, finished with 10 rebounds.

    Miller extended Georgia Tech's advantage to 25-15 on a three-point play. Stacey Poole Jr. then had back-to-back baskets to push the lead to 29-15 on a 12-0 run.

    Vanderbilt, which cut a 14-point deficit to 31-29 at halftime, opened the second half with a 9-2 run. Odom's second 3-pointer of the game put the Commodores ahead 34-33 for their first lead since 11-10, and Vanderbilt stretched it to 43-36 on five straight points by Kyle Fuller.

    Solomon Poole's third 3-pointer cut it to 43-39, but Shelby Moats sank a trey for Vanderbilt. The Commodores then pushed it out to 52-39 on Odom's jumper, Luke Kornet's 2-of-3 free throws, and Eric McClellan's dunk after a steal.

    The Commodores completed a 29-point turnaround to take a 56-41 advantage with 10:21 left on Fuller's drive and subsequent assist to Kornet. The Yellow Jackets scored only 10 points over a period of 17-plus minutes and were outscored 41-12 during the decisive run.

    Odom, who missed only one of five 3-point shots, hit two 3-pointers during an 11-4 spurt down the stretch to hold off the Yellow Jackets. Parker added his own 3-pointer to give Vanderbilt its largest lead at 71-54.

    The victory marks the first for the Commodores over a team from a power conference in the past 1 1/2 seasons.
