Vanderbilt center Josh Henderson likely tore his ACL and MCL and will undergo an MRI to confirm the injuries, coach Kevin Stallings told The Tennessean on Thursday night.

Henderson suffered the injury at 11:15 of the first half of Vanderbilt's 69-67 win over Marshall, right after back-to-back blocks by his teammates on a Marshall fast break.

Henderson, a junior, was averaging 7.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and 0.4 blocks in 21.3 minutes per game this season.

Damian Jones and James Siakam scored 15 points apiece to lead the Commodores (5-3) on Thursday night. Kareem Canty led the Thundering Herd (4-4) with 18 points.

Dai-Jon Parker sank a 3-pointer just inside the final minute to give Vanderbilt a 69-65 lead after Canty's 3-pointer had cut what had been a 13-point lead to 66-65. Shawn Smith sank his final two free throws, and Marshall had a chance to tie it before Siakam stole the ball.
