MALIBU, Calif. (AP) Josip Vrankic scored 26 points, Guglielmo Caruso added 18, both career highs, and Santa Clara swept the season series with a 79-71 win over Pepperdine on Thursday night.

The Broncos (13-11, 5-5 West Coast Conference) took the lead for good during a 7-0 run early in the second half and followed that with an 8-0 run to push the lead to 54-44. Keshawn Justice's 3-pointer at the 8:36 mark gave Santa Clara its largest lead at 63-50.

The Waves (11-13, 4-6) used a 7-0 run to close the gap to 67-61 with 4:51 left. Santa Clara scored four straight to extend the lead back to double digits and Pepperdine got the deficit no closer than seven from there.
