Rod Odom scored 15 points, and the Vanderbilt Commodores beat Arkansas 67-49 Saturday to snap a four-game losing skid and get a bit of payback for one of their ugliest losses this season.

Vanderbilt (9-13, 3-7 Southeastern Conference) managed only 11 points by halftime and matched a season-low in points while losing 56-33 to Arkansas on Jan. 12 in Fayetteville. This time, the Commodores held Arkansas to a season low in scoring. They also built their biggest halftime lead in SEC play at 35-24 and finally protected a lead by finishing off the win.

Sheldon Jeter added 13 points and Josh Henderson had 11.

Arkansas (14-9, 5-5) failed to follow up its 80-69 upset of No. 2 Florida on Tuesday night, and the Razorbacks still remain winless this season in true road games. They've lost all six, including their first four league games.

Mardracus Wade led Arkansas with 13 points.
