The Pepperdine Waves fell behind early on Saturday night, trailing by as many as 15 points in the first half, and ultimately lost 72-60 to the No. 24 Gonzaga Bulldogs on Saturday night at Firestone Fieldhouse in Malibu. The Waves never led in the game.

Down 35-21 at halftime, Pepperdine pulled to within two points with 8:55 remaining in the game, but Gonzaga finished the game on a 22-12 run for the final margin.

Senior center Corbin Moore led the Waves with 17 points and 10 rebounds, his sixth double-double of the season. Joshua Lowery added 11 points and seven assists for Pepperdine (8-15, 2-10), who lost for the 10th time in their last 11 games.
