No. 18 Vanderbilt Beats North Carolina State 86-79

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- John Jenkins scored 28 points and No. 18 Vanderbilt closed the game on a 10-2 run for an 86-79 victory over North Carolina State on Saturday night in the semifinals of the TicketCity Legends Classic.

Jenkins, who missed the Commodores' last game with a sprained right ankle, had 20 points in the first half of a game that was close until Vanderbilt (3-1) took the lead for good with a spurt that started with 2:16 to play.

The Commodores will play the winner of the Texas-Oregon State game for the championship on Monday night at the Izod Center.

Jeffrey Taylor added 17 points for Vanderbilt and Lance Goulbourne had 15, including 10 in the opening 7 minutes of the second half.
