MALIBU, Calif. (AP) Colbey Ross scored 11 of his career-high 29 points in overtime and Pepperdine defeated Saint Mary's 84-77 on Saturday night.

Kameron Edwards added 24 points and scored the other four overtime points for the Waves (10-11, 3-4 West Coast Conference). Eric Cooper Jr. had 12 points.

Malik Fitts had 27 points and Jordan Ford 17 for the Gaels (13-9, 4-3), who had won the previous six matchups with Pepperdine.

There were 16 ties, 11 lead changes and neither team had a double-figure lead.

The lead was less than five points in the last five minutes of regulation. Fitts and Ford scored back-to-back to put Saint Mary's on top 67-66 with 2:26 to play, its first lead since the 15:33 mark.

Both teams squandered opportunities down the stretch but an offensive rebound led to a Ford basket with 22.9 seconds left to make it 69-68 Gaels. Ross was fouled with six seconds left and he went 1 of 2, forcing the overtime. Ross, who had nine assists, went 15 of 16 from the line, making four in overtime.
