BYU Basketball will face the visiting Pepperdine Waves on Saturday night.
The BYU Cougars will have to get back on that horse after a disappointing loss to Gonzaga Thursday. Gonzaga visited the Marriott Center and defeated BYU in the last seconds, 75-74. That brought the Cougars to 3-2 in conference play and 13-7 overall. That loss to Gonzaga was BYU’s second at the Marriott Center this year.
Meanwhile, Pepperdine is 0-6 in away games, 0-4 in conference play, and 7-11 overall. The Waves played on Thursday, too, losing at San Diego. The final score of that game was 92-89. The Waves’ other conferences losses came at the hands of Gonzaga, Santa Clara and Pacific.
