Tyrin Lawrence scored 19 points Wednesday night as Vanderbilt hosted No. 6 Tennessee in Nashville. He saved his best for last and came up with a game-winning play at the buzzer.

With just under 5 seconds left in the game, Vanderbilt ran a give-and-go play at the top of the key. It worked to perfection with Tennessee’s defense moving to double Ezra Manjon on the drive to the bucket.

That double team freed up Lawrence with Manjon finding him in the corner. Lawrence just barely got the shot off at the buzzer, and it was pure the whole way, giving the Commodores a 66-65 win.

Amazing as that final play was for Vanderbilt, the entire sequence was set up by Tennessee passing on a layup while forcing the Commodores to foul in the final seconds of the game. After getting the ball back with under 30 seconds left, Vanderbilt had to foul 5 times to get Tennessee into a 1-and-1.

Santiago Vescovi eventually wound up on the line with 8 seconds to go, but he missed the front end. After a rebound and timeout, the Commodores set up the play that would net the game-winner.

The win goes down as Vanderbilt’s first over the Vols since 2017.
