LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Dee Davis made a driving layup with less than 2 seconds left, lifting No. 15 Vanderbilt to a 63-62 victory over Kentucky on Thursday night.
Christina Wirth scored 14 points and Carla Thomas added 11 to help the Commodores (18-4, 4-4) win their 11th straight against Kentucky.
The Wildcats, seeking their first win against a ranked team since beating then-No. 25 Florida in the quarterfinals of the Southeastern Conference tournament last season, have lost five of six.
Kentucky took a 62-61 lead when Amani Franklin scored inside with 11 seconds left. Vanderbilt called timeout with less than 7 seconds to go.
After Davis scored, the Commodres picked off Jennifer Humphrey's inbounds pass to preserve the win.
Humphrey led the Wildcats with 16 points, and Nastassia Alcius matched a season high with 14.
Vanderbilt scored the first nine points of the game and led by nine in the second half, too.
Kentucky went on a 10-2 spurt to tie the score at 25. Vanderbilt went ahead 31-28 when Thomas scored on a layup, but Alcius hit a jumper 52 seconds before halftime to cut the Commodores' lead to 31-30 at the break.
The Commodores, who lead the nation in 3-point field-goal percentage, shot just 3-of-9 from behind the arc.
