Ron Powell says a lot of promises were made by Pepperdine basketball coaches when they recruited his son, R.J., three years ago. Now he wants to take delivery. Upset that R.J.'s injury-plagued career at Pepperdine ended when the player relinquished his scholarship in April, the elder Powell says he plans to formally ask the school to pay for the completion of his son's education at the college of his choice.

Pepperdine committed five turnovers and made only one of five shots in the first four minutes and ended up falling to Gonzaga, 86-61, Friday night in a West Coast Conference game before 1,463 at Firestone Fieldhouse. The loss was Pepperdine's worst home defeat since 1978 and it snapped a four-game home winning streak. Pepperdine Coach Tony Fuller called time out when the score reached 11-2, but there was no stopping Gonzaga.

Pepperdine made a belated charge in the game's final minutes but couldn't catch Boise State and lost, 65-52, Saturday night to fall to 1-2. Boise State held a 36-25 halftime lead and increased its advantage to 57-38 with 6:58 remaining before Pepperdine cut the lead to 61-52 with a minute remaining. But Boise State sophomore guard Gerry Washington, from Brentwood High, made four free throws in the final 53 seconds to secure the victory.

If this was supposed to be a rebuilding season for Pepperdine, as many thought, the Waves sent a contradictory message Saturday to the rest of the West Coast Conference. It came in the form of a 79-55 victory over the University of San Francisco before 2,217 at Firestone Fieldhouse. Pepperdine (6-10), picked to finish near the bottom of the conference, moved into the middle of the pack in the WCC at 2-2 by completing a weekend sweep that began with Friday's victory over San Diego.

Rebuilding begins again for Tony Fuller, Pepperdine's second-year men's basketball coach whose Waves will play host to Minas Tenis, a club team from Brazil, in an exhibition today at 3 p.m. at Firestone Fieldhouse. Five players recruited by the previous coach, Tom Asbury, transferred during or after a dismal 8-19 1994-95 season, including former Notre Dame High guard Monte Marcaccini and former Ventura College and Santa Paula High guard Joey Ramirez.

His team still can't make free throws, but Pepperdine basketball Coach Lorenzo Romar saw the Waves making strides Saturday night. Pepperdine rallied from a 13-point, second-half deficit against taller Pacific, but the Tigers made three of four free throws in the last 20 seconds to come away with a 54-52 nonconference victory before 1,627 at Firestone Fieldhouse. Although it was the third consecutive loss for the Waves (1-4), Romar was pleased with the effort.

In a season of infrequent highs and abundant lows, the one constant for the Pepperdine men's basketball team has been its ability to play aggressive defense. That again was the case Wednesday night. Despite shooting only 33%, the Waves applied a stranglehold on Loyola Marymount, limiting the Lions to a season-low point total in a 59-52 West Coast Conference victory before 1,037 at Gersten Pavilion. "I'd rather win them nasty than lose them pretty," Pepperdine Coach Lorenzo Romar said.
