Center Corbin Moore scored 14 points and pulled down 14 rebounds on Saturday afternoon, but his first career three-pointer will be the lasting memory as the Pepperdine Waves defeated the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners 70-64 in overtime at the UTSA Convocation Center in San Antonio. The senior center, in his 101st college game for Pepperdine, hit a three-pointer with 10 seconds left to tie the game at 62-62 and sent the game to overtime.
Pepperdine (3-2) had trouble all day against the Roadrunners, trailing for nearly all of the first 33 minutes. The Waves took their first lead of the game at 47-46 with 7:44 remaining in the game. Taylor Darby added 11 points and 11 rebounds for Pepperdine, giving the Waves their first two double-doubles of the season.
The Waves held UTSA, who won a game in the 2011 NCAA Tournament, to 35.1% shooting (20 for 57) and outrebounded the Roadrunners 43-35. Kannon Burrage led Texas-San Antonio with 18 points.
