Things went from bad to worse for Pepperdine's basketball team Saturday night. The Waves committed 28 turnovers and lost to Boise State, 74-53, in a nonconference game at Boise, Ida.

Only two Pepperdine players scored in double figures.

The Waves, who were badly outplayed in losing their first two conference games last weekend, against Santa Clara and St. Mary's, held San Diego to 35.2% shooting. The Toreros made only seven of 27 three-point shots (25.9%). "The defense got us over the hump," Pepperdine Coach Tony Fuller said.

Capistrano Valley 6-foot-6 center Steve Ransom was ready for the challenge of guarding Trabuco Hills' 6-foot-10 Gavin Vanderputten Friday night. And after applying a physical defense that held Vanderputten to 10 points--two in the second half--Ransom and the Cougars came away with an 83-57 victory at Capistrano Valley High School. "Before the game I was really psyched to play him," Ransom said. "He got frustrated in the second half when our zone helped in the middle."
