| Highlights 1 | Highlights 2
Clarke recorded her eighth double-double of the season with a game-high 22 points and 14 rebounds. Playing in her final home game as a Commodore, Clarke shot 6-of-14 from the field and 10-of-12 from the free throw line. Clarke made and attempted more free throws than the entire Auburn team tonight (5-of-9).
Jasmine Lister scored 12 of her 20 points in the second half to help the Commodores extend their lead late in the game. Lister shot 6-of-12 from the field and 5-of-6 from the charity stripe.
Auburn's zone defense gave the Commodores fits for a good portion of the night, as Vanderbilt turned the ball over 26 times and shot just 39 percent (16-of-41) from the field.
However, Vanderbilt was able to get to the free throw line 27 times on the night, while converting 23-of-27 (85 percent).
Despite forcing the 26 Vandy turnovers, Auburn couldn't translate them into points on the other end, as the Tigers scored just 15 points off turnovers. A major reason for that, Auburn shot just 31 percent (19-of-61) from the field and made just 1-of-14 (7 percent) from three-point range.
Auburn had only one player score in double-figures on the night, as Tyrese Tanner scored 14 points and also pulled down six rebounds. Hasina Muhammad and Najat Ouardad each recorded four steals. As a team, the Tigers had 14 steals on the night.
Vanderbilt led 27-18 at the half, but the Commodores were unable to shake free of the Tigers for much of the second half. Auburn pulled within three, 38-35, with 10:07 to play, but that would be as close as it would get. Vanderbilt would go on and extend its lead to 12 with 3:13 to play.
Lister led Vanderbilt with eight points at halftime, while Clarke added seven points and nine boards.
