VU routs Manhattan, 86-48

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Freshman reserve John Jenkins scored 15 points to lead Vanderbilt to an 86-48 victory over Manhattan on Wednesday night.

Eleven players scored for the Commodores (9-3), the third straight game that Vanderbilt had at least 10 players score.

The Jaspers (6-6) were just 25.8 percent (17-for-66) from the field and mustered just 22 points in the first half. It was the third straight game in which the Commodores allowed less than 25 points in the first half.

Darryl Crawford had 12 points and eight rebounds for Manhattan.

Jaspers’ freshman Kevin Laue, who has just one hand, scored his first career point on a free throw with three minutes left. The 6-foot-11 center, who is believed to be the only one-handed basketball player to receive a Division I scholarship, also grabbed a career-high eight rebounds in 17 minutes.
