LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) -- A.J. Ogilvy scored 20 points and grabbed seven rebounds while Jermaine Beal added 18 points and five assists to lead No. 24 Vanderbilt to an 84-72 win over Arizona in the fifth-place game of the Maui Invitational on Wednesday.
The Commodores (4-1) shot 31 for 57 from the field (54.4 percent), including 7 for 20 from beyond the 3-point line. That made up for woeful free-throw shooting--15 for 29.
Jeffery Taylor added 13 points for Vanderbilt, which shot 18 for 26 from the field in the second half (69.2 percent) to overcome a 41-36 halftime deficit.
The Commodores went on a 14-2 run midway through the second half to turn a 54-49 deficit into a 63-56 lead.
