Vanderbilt led 51-40 with just 7:10 left when Kyle Fuller hit a 3, but a flurry of turnovers and bad shots doomed the Commodores down the stretch. 'Bama tied the game at 53 on a pair of Lacey foul shots with 3:29 left, and his 3 a few minutes later provided the winning margin.

Kedren Johnson led Vandy with 15, and Fuller added 13, while Lacey's 17 were a game high.

Vanderbilt led by a 31-23 margin at the break, behind 12 from Johnson and eight from Fuller. Alabama shot just 32 percent (8-of-25) from the field in the first half.
