    OXFORD, Miss. -- Jence Rhoads scored 19 points and Vanderbilt (No. 20 ESPN/USA Today, No. 25 AP) beat Mississippi 68-59 Sunday for its first win in Oxford since 2003.

    The Commodores (19-8, 8-6 Southeastern Conference) had lost two of their last three, including a 39-point performance against LSU on Thursday. But Rhoads hurt the Rebels by scoring 10 of Vanderbilt's last 19 points as the Commodores pulled away from a 49-49 tie for the victory in a game Ole Miss (15-12, 6-8) led for long stretches.

    Vanderbilt used a 13-4 run to take a 62-53 lead with 3:12 left and was never threatened after that. Rhoads scored six points during the run. Merideth Marsh had 15 points for the Commodores and Elan Brown had eight points and 10 rebounds.

    Bianca Thomas led Ole Miss with 23 points. Kayla Melson added 17 points and five assists, while Kayla Holloway scored 13 points with eight rebounds.

    It was the Rebels' fourth straight loss and seventh in eight games.
