The Aggies led 34-33 just 5 minutes into the second half before the Commodores ripped off 13 consecutive points to build a lead they wouldn't relinquish.
A&M cut Vanderbilt's lead to 52-48 with 4:49 remaining, but the Commodores (10-8, 2-4 SEC) used a 14-7 run to close out the scoring.
Vanderbilt was down to seven scholarship players following injuries and the Jan. 10 dismissal of guard Eric McClellan, but snapped a two-game losing streak and improved its all-time record against the Aggies to 3-0.
Kourtney Roberson led Texas A&M (12-7, 3-3) with 14 points.
Neither team was particularly good from the 3-point line, but Vanderbilt was better by making 7 of 22 (31.8 percent) compared to the Aggies' 4 of 18 (22.2 percent).
