Question of the Day
Parker hit three consecutive 3-pointers during an 18-4 run early in the second half to give the Commodores their first lead, going ahead 43-38. Vandy’s six baskets during that stretch were all 3s.
Then Tahj Shamsid-Deen scored on three consecutive possessions for Auburn and tied it 45-45 with a 3-pointer with 12:33 left. Those were his only seven points.
Odom, who came in averaging a team-high 14.5 points, didn’t score until midway through the second half. He followed that up with a pair of 3-pointers and finished with eight points. Stallings said Odom took a knee to the thigh in Friday night’s practice “and we weren’t even sure if he was going to play.”
The Commodores, down to seven scholarship players, had to turn to the walk-ons with several starters having foul trouble.
“I didn’t see it coming,” Watkins said. “I know Rod hurt his leg a little bit in practice but between the slow start and that, coach told me to go in. It was a new experience, the first time I’ve ever played real minutes in a regular season game.
“When Carter and I went in, I guess we got the spark we needed to start the comeback.”
The comeback win came after the Commodores had fallen short after erasing most of an eight-point deficit over the final two-plus minutes in a 67-64 road loss to Missouri on Wednesday.
