    Vanderbilt overcomes 16-point deficit to beat Quinnipiac

    Associated Press

    HAMDEN, Conn. -- Jence Rhoads made a short jumper with 36 seconds left for the winning basket and Vanderbilt (No. 17 ESPN/USA Today, No. 18 AP) rallied from 16 points down to beat Quinnipiac 75-74 on Thursday night.

    Rhoads and Merideth Marsh had 17 points apiece for Vanderbilt (9-1). Tiffany Clarke added 14 points and sank two free throws with six seconds to play to give the Commodores a 75-71 lead.

    Quinnipiac's Kathleen Neyens hit a 3-pointer as time expired. Neyens, who finished with a team-high 15 points, claimed she was fouled on the shot but there was no call.

    Quinnipiac, hosting a nationally ranked team for the first time in school history, hit its first four 3-point shots and raced out to a 29-13 lead.

    Quinnipiac took a 41-34 lead into the break then scored the first six points of the second half, but the Commodores responded with a 15-0 run to take their first lead of the game five minutes into the second half.
