MBB: 'Dores Earn Road WinListen to Postgame Interviews

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -Shan Foster scored 21 points to lead Vanderbilt to a 77-70 win over Toledo on Tuesday night.

The Commodores (2-0) led 35-29 at halftime and shot 67 percent (14 of 21) in the second half to pull away.

“It was an interesting game to say the least,” said Vanderbilt head coach Kevin Stallings. “We got off to a great start, but they got back into it. I thought we responded with a young team for our first game on the road.”

Foster, one of three returning starters from last season’s team that made it to the NCAA Sweet 16, also had eight rebounds.

A.J. Ogilvy, a 6-11 center from Australia who had 18 points in his college debut Saturday against Austin Peay, scored 20 points against the Rockets (1-1).

Jonathan Amos led Toledo with 23 points. Jerrah Young scored 16, Tyrone Kent added 14 and Ridley Johnson had 11.

The Rockets shot 44 percent (23 of 52) for the game.

“They are a tough match up,” Stallings added. “They have big wings and small posts, and it provides some problems. I thought we did a pretty good job against Kent (UT’s leading scorer). We tried to focus on that.”

Vanderbilt will return to action on November 20 to host Valparaiso at 7 p.m. CT in Memorial Gym.
