The Pepperdine Waves need a win just to restore some confidence after an 88-82 loss to the Southern Utah Thunderbirds saddled the team with losses in four of five.

Pepperdine won the shooting battle 51.7%-45.8% but SUU nailed 15-30 from distance and sank more free throws.

Kameron Edwards was a one man show for the Waves with a contest high 25 points, 16 rebounds and three blocks on 10-14 from the floor with Nolan Taylor adding 13 points and five pulls on 6-9 shooting. The dui of Trae Berhow and Colbey Ross gave Pepperdine 13 points each with Ross handing out nine assists. 

Despite a 3-4 record, the Cal Poly Mustangs have generally been competitive with pace and defense their allies. However, that wasn’t the case in a  75-66 loss to the Idaho Vandals where a nine point deficit heading to the intermission was  too much to overcome.
