The Scouting Report
In their best start since '04–'05, the Pepperdine University Waves have surged to a 6–3 record through the first nine games this season. Senior guard Lorne Jackson spearheads the squad with a two-way output that has him close to joining the school's top-10 all-time leaders in steals and three-pointers. In the frontcourt, forward Stacy Davis serves as the only freshman ranked among the West Coast Conference's top-20 scorers, now that the WCC counts all crumpled-up essays thrown in the Pepperdine dorms' wastebaskets as points.
Pepperdine University Waves
Since Pepperdine moved to Malibu from Los Angeles in 1972, the school's athletics program has accrued accolades in a variety of team and individual activities, becoming one of only 16 NCAA Division I schools to win men's national titles in five different sports. In addition to the Waves' national championships in baseball, women's sand volleyball, and men's tennis, the men's volleyball team claimed five titles between '78 and '05, prompting opponents to bring metal detectors to matches in hopes that new trophies were buried under the floorboards. Among the more than 100 individuals and teams lining the Waves' hall of fame, several Pepperdine alum have gone on to careers in everything from the pro tennis circuit to Major League Baseball.
