Nov 22, 2011 - 5:27 AM East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) - Brad Tinsley's late jumper gave No. 18 Vanderbilt a 64-62 victory over Oregon State in the title game of the Legends Classic.

Tinsley then hit the game-winning jumper with 4.5 ticks remaining. Jared Cunningham, who was held to nine points, missed a shot as time expired.

"My team did a terrific job," Oregon State head coach Craig Robinson said. "I know a lot of you guys are surprised, but I'm not."

Following a 31-31 tie at the half, the Commodores scored the first eight points of the second half.
