    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Shan Foster scored 12 points and Vanderbilt withstood a late rally to beat IUPUI 53-45 Thursday night.

    Julian Terrell had eight points and 12 rebounds for Vanderbilt (7-1).

    Matt Burks led IUPUI (5-6) with 15 points and Brandon Cole added 10. George Hill, who entered the game averaging 18 points, scored just six on 3-of-12 shooting.

    Vanderbilt looked to have the game in control, leading 50-37 with under three minutes to play, but IUPUI scored eight straight points to pull within 50-45 with 57 seconds left. Foster then hit a 3-pointer with the shot clock winding down to push Vanderbilt's lead back to eight with 22 seconds remaining.

    The Commodores attempted a season-high 29 3-point attempts, making eight, against an IUPUI zone that defended the interior and allowed Vanderbilt to shoot from the outside. The Commodores shot a season-low 38 percent from the field. At the other end, IUPUI was held to 37 percent shooting and a season-low in points.

    Vanderbilt controlled the boards 42-27.

    IUPUI built an early 13-5 lead by holding Vanderbilt scoreless for over six minutes in the first half. The Commodores answered with a 10-0 run, then later closed the first half on a 7-0 run to emerge with a 29-22 lead. Dan Cage hit a runner in the lane as time expired in the first half.
