What to Know

A West Coast battle is on tap between the Pacific Tigers and the Pepperdine Waves at 8 p.m. ET this past Saturday at Firestone Fieldhouse. The neutral point spread forecasts a close one for these two.

Pacific is hoping for another victory. They managed an 81-76 win over Pepperdine this past Thursday. The Tigers got double-digit scores from four players: forward Jeremiah Bailey (24), guard Nick Blake (20), guard Luke Avdalovic (13), and guard Pierre Crockrell II (10).

Pacific's win brought them up to 7-14 while Pepperdine's loss pulled them down to 6-18. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Pacific is 43rd worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 66 on average. The Waves have experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the matchup with the 24th most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 75.8 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
