Pepperdine Waves Tickets for Sale

But defense (or lack of) has been a problem (79 ppg surrendered). Pepperdine was 10-5 SU, 7-8 ATS at home, but a poor 5-11 SU, 6-9 ATS on the road. 6'-9' senior Jesse Pinegar played in 30 games and provides more bulk off the bench along with 6'-9' senior Robert Turner and 6'-9' junior Derick Grubb.

There is backcourt depth with redshirt freshman guard Kinglsey Costain, who was named to the Canadian Young Men's (Under 20) National Team Roster over the summer. Two freshmen are 6'-6' Oliver Prince and 7'-0' center Russell Hicks. The Waves have plenty of talent and depth to be much better, though they need to tighten up the 'D'.
Pepperdine (15-16 last season, 13-17 ATS) is off another disappointing campaign. There has been plenty of talent on this team, but the lack of defense for coach Paul Westphal's club is the main reason they have underachieved. They were supposed to be much better, and notice they went 9-18 against the spread two years ago and 13-17 ATS last year.

There's plenty of returning talent, especially on offense, with all five starters returning. 6'-7' senior Yakhouba Diawara (19 ppg, 6.6 rpg) and 6'-8' senior Glen McGowan (17.8 ppg, 5.4 rpg) anchor a frontcourt that has no trouble putting the ball in the hole. The backcourt is strong and tall, with 6'-5' senior guard Terrance Johnson (15 ppg) and 6'-5' junior guard Alex Acker (13 ppg, 5 rpg). Pepperdine averaged 79 ppg and looks just as strong offensively.
