WATCH Vandy's LaChance drills buzzer-beating 3 to bury MSU

  LaChance and his teammates celebrate an 81-80 win over Mississippi State on Wednesday night.

Vanderbilt has been a different team playing in front of its home fans at Memorial Gymnasium in 2017-18, where it is 10-5, and Wednesday night it was senior guard Riley LaChance who thrilled the Commodores' faithful.

Playing a game-high 37 minutes in a back-and-forth contest against Mississippi State, LaChance took advantage of a missed free throw from Xavian Stapleton that would have given the Bulldogs a three-point lead in the final seconds.

Instead, Vanderbilt quickly advanced the ball up the court, setting LaChance up for a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer to give the Commodores an 81-80 win.

LaChance had 16 points and a team-high eight assists in the victory.
