Clarke carries Vanderbilt over No. 10 Texas A&MFeb 25, 2013 - 12:56 AM Vanderbilt over No. 10 Texas A&M, 61-51, as Melanie Balcomb picked up her 256th win as Commodores head coach.
Balcomb matched Jim Foster for most wins in program history as the Commodores (18-9, 8-6 SEC) improved to 3-1 without second-leading scorer Christina Foggie, who has been sidelined with a knee injury.
Elan Brown and Jasmine Lister chipped in 12 and 11 points, respectively, for Vanderbilt, which held Texas A&M to 31 percent shooting.

Kelsey Bone scored a team-high 17 points on 6-of-18 shooting, while Kristi Bellock recorded 12 points and 10 rebounds in defeat.
Vanderbilt led 25-20 at halftime and scored the first six points after the break to pull ahead by double digits.
