DULUTH, Ga. (AP) - Tiffany Clarke had 14 points and 11 rebounds, Christina Foggie added 12 points and Vanderbilt beat Missouri 53-40 in the second round of the Southeastern Conference tournament on Thursday night.

The Commodores (20-10) will play No. 7 Kentucky in the quarterfinals on Friday.

Liz Smith finished with 16 points and eight rebounds for Missouri (17-14). The senior center, the only Tiger to score in double figures, fouled out with 1:29 remaining.

Vanderbilt trailed 17-16 at intermission, scoring a season-low in first-half points and shooting 17.1% on 35 attempts.

After missing their first five shots of the second half, the Commodores soon began an 18-0 run to take a 37-26 lead. Foggie scored nine points and Clarke added six during the run.

Missouri, which has dropped 6 of its last eight, went nearly 8 minutes without a point before Liene Priede's 3-pointer cut the lead to eight with 6:08 remaining.
