Pepperdine had split the first 20 minutes of its season between running up and down the Jacksonville Coliseum floor and walking to the free-throw line. The Waves had little to show for it besides a 32-32 tie with Jacksonville University. Enough, Pepperdine Coach Tom Asbury said. The Waves came out with a 6-0 run in the first 70 seconds of the second half and put Jacksonville away, 84-64, Saturday night before 3,247. "It wasn't artistic, but we put the mark in the win column," Asbury said.
