It’s an 8-9 match up on Friday night in the opening round of the West Coast Conference Tournament in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Pacific Tigers take on the Pepperdine Waves.
The winner of this game will be rewarded with a match up against the number one seed Gonzaga Bulldogs in the second round.
The Pacific Tigers are coming to the end of another bad year in the WCC. They come into this game with a record of 10-21 and finished the regular season in 9th place in the WCC.
Since January 14th the Tigers have only won two games. In that same stretch they have lost 11 games. They however still might have a bit of confidence coming into this first game though.
In the last two games they have lost by a total of two points. Earlier this season they also did beat Pepperdine by a final of 79-74.
For the Tigers to win it’s going to come down to the offensive end. On the season they only average 65.5 points per game and it win this one, that number will have to be higher.
The Pepperdine Waves have also had a disappointing season but a lot of their problems have to do with injuries. The Waves come into this game with a record of 9-21 and sit in 8th place in the WCC.
Their second and fifth leading scorers are out with injuries for the season which has really caused problems on both sides of the ball for the Waves.
To figure out why the team isn’t winning games all one has to do is look at their defensive stats. They come into this game giving up 80.1 points and opponents shoot 48.9 percent from the floor.
For the Waves to advance to the second round and a date with Gonzaga they need to lock in on that side of the floor. They can not give up 80 points and expect to win this game.

Free Pacific Tigers vs. Pepperdine Waves NCAAB Prediction:
On paper these two teams are very similar, as they should be in a 8/9 match up. I expect on the court that to really show.
I think in the end Pacific will win and get a date with the Gonzaga Bulldogs.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Pacific -3
I don’t think Pepperdine will perform well on the defensive side of the ball and that will ultimately coast them a shot to make it to the second round.
