COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Bri Kulas scored 15 points and Missouri held off a rally from No. 16 Vanderbilt for a 59-54 victory Thursday.

Kayla McDowell added 13 points and Morgan Stock had 11 for Missouri (14-7, 3-5 SEC). The Tigers took a 13-point lead into halftime before Vanderbilt (16-5, 5-3) rallied in the second half, coming within 55-54 after Kylee Smith converted a three-point play with 52 seconds left.

Following a turnover from each team, Stock was fouled with 16 seconds left and made both free throws. Jasmine Lister missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer for Vanderbilt before McDowell made two free throws as Missouri held on.

The Commodores shot 22 percent from the field, including 2 of 16 from 3-point range. Christina Foggie led Vanderbilt with 10 points.

Vanderbilt has now dropped two straight contests after a four-game win streak that included wins over ranked opponents, Tennessee and Louisiana State.
