Cambridge Collects Double-Double in Win Over Lipscomb

The Nashville, Tennessee, native scored 23 points and pulled down 14 rebounds in a 72-50 win over the Bisons

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Graduate student Jordyn Cambridge recorded her fourth double-double of the season on Sunday, as the Nashville, Tennessee, native registered 23 points and 14 rebounds in a 72-50 victory over Lipscomb at Memorial Gymnasium.

Cambridge was electric all afternoon against the Bisons, as she registered her second 20-point performance of the season, while she pulled down a season-best 14 rebounds. The guard added three steals to her stat line to extend her consecutive steals streak to 49-straight games. Cambridge’s 23-point, 14-rebound performance against Lipscomb marks the first time that the Nashville, Tennessee, native has recorded a double-double against an NCAA Division I school from the Music City.

With the win, Vanderbilt improves to 10-1 overall this season. It matches the Commodores’ best start to a season through 11 games since the 2016-17 campaign. The victory over Lipscomb also marks Vandy’s eighth-straight home win over a nonconference opponent.

The Commodores used their depth to outpace the Bisons on Sunday, as all but two players who played for Vanderbilt scored against Lipscomb. The Dores outscored LU 27-9 in points off the bench, led by freshman Khamil Pierre’s 14 points. Pierre’s 14-point effort against the Bisons matches her career-best performance in the scoring column, while the 6-2 freshman also tied her career-high in rebounds with seven caroms. Junior Sacha Washington also flirted with a double-double against Lipscomb, as the 6-2 forward grabbed 12 rebounds and scored nine points.

The Commodores shot 42.3% as a team in the victory and made a total of five 3-pointers as a team. Defensively, Vandy limited Lipscomb to just 29.7% from the floor, while the Commodores collected eight steals and forced 12 turnovers.

Vanderbilt used an early 9-0 run to build an 11-3 advantage in the first quarter. The Bisons scored seven of the game’s next nine points to make it a one-possession game at 13-10 with 38 seconds left in the opening stanza. Pierre closed the stanza with a layup to push Vandy’s lead back out to five points at 15-10.

Lipscomb scored the first five points of the second quarter to knot the game up at 15-all and force Vanderbilt to call a timeout. After the timeout, the Commodores went on a 24-6 run to close out the second quarter and take an 18-point lead into the locker room at 39-21. Cambridge was huge in the second-quarter run, as she scored 15 of her team’s 24 points during the spurt.

Cambridge stayed hot out of the break, as she opened the third quarter with a jumper to push Vanderbilt’s advantage to 20 points at 41-21. The Commodores maintained a double-digit lead for the remainder of the second half, as Vanderbilt collected a 22-point win over the Bisons.

Head Coach Shea Ralph on the Win
“It’s great to pick up a win after being away from games for 10 days. We love to play and when you go through some time off it can be tough sometimes to make sure your team is where they need to be. It took us a little while to get started today, but I was really proud of them, especially of our players who came off the bench. They gave us a lot of energy and momentum in the first half. I’m happy with our team’s overall effort today.”
