    Vanderbilt bounces back after slow start to drop Florida

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Christina Wirth scored 20 points to lead No. 14 Vanderbilt to an 82-69 comeback victory over Florida on Sunday.

    The Commodores (16-2, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) made only six of their first 25 shots and shot 36.7 percent from the field in the first half, helping the Gators to a 33-28 halftime advantage.

    Wirth scored 12 points in the second half and sparked an 11-0 Vanderbilt run that led to a 44-40 lead. It was the Commodores' first lead since holding a 3-2 advantage.

    Florida made a final charge when Sha Brooks scored a basket and added a free throw with 3:08 remaining, cutting the lead to 68-62.

    Liz Sherwood answered with a put-back basket, and the Commodores made six consecutive free throws, keeping Vanderbilt ahead 75-62 with 1:11 left.

    Depree Bowden led Florida (6-12, 0-3) with 26 points.
