NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Jasmine Lister scored 22 points and Christina Foggie added 21 as Vanderbilt upset No. 8 Tennessee 74-63 Sunday giving the Commodores a very rare win over their in-state rival.

Vanderbilt (14-3, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) snapped a three-game skid against Tennessee with its first win in the series since Feb. 9, 2012. The Commodores now have nine victories in the 70 games they count having played against Tennessee.

Marqu'es Webb added 12 for Vanderbilt, which now has won 11 of its last 12.

Tennessee (13-3, 2-2) snapped a two-game streak as the Lady Vols start a two-game road swing in the SEC. Isabelle Harrison snapped a school-record streak of double-doubles at seven as she scored 10 points and had only five rebounds before fouling out.

Meighan Simmons led the Lady Vols with 19 points. Jasmine Jones had 13 and Cierra Burdick 11.
