NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Luke Kornets 3-pointers havent been falling this season, but he hit two big ones Saturday night.The 7-foot-1 senior buried two during the final 90 seconds, including the game-winner with 3 seconds left, in Vanderbilts 76-74 win over Chattanooga as the Commodores rallied from a nine-point second half deficit.Kornet entered the game with a 23 percent clip from beyond the arc on 6-of-26 shooting.This last week, finals week and having it off, I was able to get in the gym a lot, Kornet said. I kind of had something wrong with my off hand (wrist injury) just from the beginning of the year. Just getting those repetitions in really helped.Kornet and Matthew Fisher-Davis led Vanderbilt (6-5) with 18 points each as the Commodores played their first game since a nine-day break for exams.Kornet made his winning shot seven seconds after Chattanoogas Greg Pryor missed the front end of a one-and-one.Kornet also drained a 3 that gave the Commodores a 73-72 lead with 1:27 remaining. He hit 3 of 6 from beyond the arc.Chattanoogas Tre McLean, the preseason Southern Conference Player of the Year, couldnt get off a rushed jumper in time at the buzzer.Vanderbilt coach Bryce Drew said Kornet was the first option on the last-second shot.Hes a senior and hes worked really hard, and he hit a big shot just about a minute before that so the players really did a good job finding him, Drew said. As you dribble up, obviously there are different options, but Riley (LaChance) made a good decision and Luke made a huge shot.LaChance fed Kornet with a pass on the left side as time ran down in the first game against Chattanooga (8-3) since 2001.Jeff Roberson added 11 points for Vanderbilt and LaChance had 10.LaChance, the SECs leading 3-point shooter (67.6 percent entering the game), buried a shot from beyond the arc to tie the game at 68 with 4:02 left.Casey Jones led the Mocs with 16 points as their five-game win streak ended.He scored most of his points inside against Vanderbilts zone defense.Ive never been a great outside shooter in my career, so that was my best option, Jones said. I just got down there and tried to penetrate against the zone, and hit what I could.Chattanoogas Justin Tuoyo and Greg Pryor both added 12. Pryor became the 22nd Moc of the Division I era to reach the 1,000 career points milestone with a layup for the games first basket early in the first half.The two biggest things in the game were guarding the 3-point line and rebounding, Chattanooga coach Matt McCall said. They go 6 for 21 and shoot 28 percent. And we outrebounded them (33-27). And we still had a chances.Chattanooga fell to 26-113 against the SEC and 3-14 versus Vanderbilt.BIG PICTUREChattanooga: The Mocs, hoping for a return to the NCAA Tournament after falling to Indiana in the first round last season, should feel good about this one despite the loss after leading much of the second half. Chattanooga fell to 26-113 against the SEC and 3-14 versus Vanderbilt.Vanderbilt: The Commodores entered the game as the SECs best 3-point shooting team and won it with a clutch 3. But they made only 6 of 21 from beyond the arc.UP NEXTChattanooga hosts Jacksonville State on Wednesday before starting Southern Conference play at Western Carolina on New Years Eve.Vanderbilt visits Dayton on Wednesday before beginning its Southeastern Conference schedule at LSU on Dec. 29.

Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield.

Theres a generation of South Africans whose memories of watching their Test team play in Australia are the complete opposite of Faf du Plessis and his teams. Generation now. Anyone 10 or younger has never known a South African side that has lost a Test series in Australia and to have added a layer to that legacy is this teams greatest joy.We know how hard it is. We watched on TV for so many years how hard it was to was for South Africa to come here and do well, du Plessis said. I suppose the younger guys looking from back home can see that its possible to come here and to an extent and dominate an Australian team. It is extremely special for us. Its something we will remember as a team. Thats exactly what we came here to do, we want to create memories together.Not since the West Indies between 1984 and 1992 has a team won three successive series in Australia but that is not the only thing that stands out about this South African victory. It is that they did it without the two players who have been stalwarts for a decade - AB de Villiers and Dale Steyn who are both injured - and Morne Morkel about whom there are concerns about match fitness. Also Hashim Amla, the leader of the batting line-up, contributed only 48 runs across three innings.It has taken a total team effort, something du Plessis has lauded. This team has been very close to exceptional, he said. There havent been many things weve done wrong. We have been consistent in the way we perform. We are not relying on one or two players. All XI are putting our hands up at different times and thats what you want from your team.Australia were warned of South Africas ability to spread the load last month in the ODI series. Albeit in a different format, in different conditions, South Africas 5-0 victory did provide the springboard for this series. We came across here with a lot of confidence, du Plessis said.Self-belief helped South Africa bounce back from a poor first day in Perth to take 10 for 86 and set themselves up for victory there. It also propelled them to pluck Australia for 85 in the first innings in Hobart. The twin collapses showed South Africa that Australia had weaknesses they could exploit, especially if they targetted their senior players.When you are a team thats undeer the pump and under pressure and not playing as well as you like, confidence will fade away, du Plessis said.dddddddddddd Its hard to fake it. We didnt give them the opportunity to do it [assert themselves over a long period of time]. It was important to keep the important guys in the team quiet - David Warner and Steve Smith. If you can put a lot of pressure on them, the younger guys wont have that same punch. We made sure those guys have been relatively quiet in the series. Even guys like [Mitchell] Starc, he bowled well in that one spell but if you are on top, thats when you get a five-for and you clean the tail up. We were just really good in making sure we stopped that. On the other hand, once South Africa got an opening, they were unstoppable. It took just 95 minutes for them to finish Australia off on the fourth morning. Du Plessis did not expect the series win to come so quickly, although he suspected victory was inevitable after the pressure his bowlers piled on late on the third day. I didnt expect it to happen that quickly, du Plessis said. Yesterday, our bowling was exceptional. The last hour and a half, we were so good in our areas and relentless. We didnt get the results we wanted but we knew today if we came back, it would change for us. This is one of those sessions we will always remember as a team, that won us the series and it was unbelievable.It was unbelievable because it was more dominant than a South African side has ever been in Australia. Four years ago, South Africa battled through the first two drawn Tests and then won the third. Eight years ago, they won the first two Tests and lost the third. This time, du Plessis wants to take everything South Africa can from this trip, which means a win in their first day-night Test in Adelaide.That is the mission for us now, he said. We want to do that very badly. We wont rest on our laurels and be happy with 2-1 or even 2-0. Weve got Australia in a position where they are under pressure and we dont want to let that go. Its hard enough to get them in this position so we will do everything we can to make it 3-0.What memories that will make.
