Christina Foggie shook off a foot injury and returned to the court Tuesday night.
Good thing, too, because Vanderbilt needed her game-high 18 points to fend off Western Kentucky 77-67 in Bowling Green, Ky.
Foggie had missed the previous two games with sprained tendons in her right foot. But the junior came off the bench and made six of 10 shots as the Commodores (6-3) won their third straight.
Vanderbilt trailed 35-34 at halftime, but charged out of the break. The Commodores started the second half by making their first 11 field goals, including four 3-pointers. Foggie’s layup with 12:46 left made it 61-50 and ended the spurt.
Despite 22 turnovers, Vanderbilt shot 63.3 percent, including 75 percent (nine-for-12) from 3-point range.
Four Vanderbilt players scored in double figures. Kady Schrann had 14 and Tiffany Clarke and Jasmine Lister each scored 13. Lister also had 11 assists for Vanderbilt’s first double-double of the season. Elan Brown hauled in a career-high 13 rebounds in addition to nine points.
Chastity Gooch and Alexis Govan each scored 15 points for WKU (5-2).
Vanderbilt returns to Nashville and Memorial Gymnasium at 7 p.m. on Thursday against Hartford.
