Wonder how much Gavin Vanderputten wants to play? Ask Derek Noether, Pepperdine's starting center. He'll count the bruises and give you the latest update. Vanderputten, a 6-foot-11 freshman from Perth, Australia, who averaged 20 points and 11 rebounds while leading Trabuco Hills High to the Southern Section Division II-A title last season, is averaging less than six minutes a game with the Waves.

Pepperdine used tough defense and the scoring of center Gavin Vanderputten to defeat San Diego, 61-51, in a West Coast Conference basketball game Friday night at Firestone Fieldhouse. 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.
