NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tiffany Clarke scored 22 of her career-high 30 points in the second half to help Vanderbilt upset No. 10 Texas A&M 61-51 on Sunday.

Clarke made 12 of 25 shots and scored on back-to-back possessions late to help the Commodores pick up their first win against a Top 10 team since knocking off No. 6 Georgia on Jan. 14, 2010.

Vanderbilt (18-9, 8-6 Southeastern Conference) led by 12 points three times but the Aggies (21-7, 11-3) pulled within 47-44 with 6:23 remaining. Jasmine Lister responded with a 3-pointer and then found Clarke for an open layup. Clarke followed with a turnaround jumped to push the lead back to 55-47 with 1:58 left.

Elan Brown scored 10 of her 12 points in the first half, Lister added 11 and Morgan Batey set a career-high with 11 rebounds. Kelsey Bone, the SEC's third-leading scorer, had 17 points but was just 6-of-18 from the field. Kristi Bellock had 12 points and 10 rebounds.
