Pepperdine has won one of its ten WCC games thus far and is dead-last of all teams in the conference, according to KenPom’s rankings (#307).
But the losing goes back further than just the start of conference play. The Waves lost 11 in a row before snapping that run of misery with a win over LMU at home last week. They got back to their losing ways on Saturday when Santa Clara came to visit and left with a 14-point win.
The defense is about as bad as it gets (343rd out of 351 NCAA Division I teams, according to KenPom) but freshman guard Colbey Ross can shoot it. He is second on the team with 14.6 points per game and is shooting over 45 percent from deep.
Coming in at #256 in the KenPom is Portland, the third-worst of all the WCC teams. That’s also where the Pilots are flying in the standings, as per now. They have two wins to go along with eight losses.
Strangely enough, both of Portland’s wins came on the road in back-to-back games against San Diego and LMU. USD is a pretty good team so that was a surprise. The Lions of Loyola-Marymount are bottom feeders with Pepperdine.
According to KenPom, the Pilots are exactly 249th in the country on offense and on defense. Now that’s balance. Josh McSwiggan leads the team with 11.7 points per game and 44.4 percent shooting from three. He’s also got the best name in the country, hands down.
