Feb. 9, 2013
No Wave scored more than six points. Kelsey Brockway (Rolling Hills, Calif./Palos Verdes HS), Bria Richardson (Hawthorne, Calif./Serra HS) and Monet McNally (Santa Clarita, Calif./L.A. Baptist HS) each scored six points for Pepperdine.
Pepperdine shot a frigid .177 (11-62) from the field and attempted 31 field goals each half. The Waves went just 1-for-18 from 3-point range (.056). The Pilots sizzled offensively, connecting on .441 (26-59) and finished the second half connecting on .556 (15-27) after the intermission.
Portland converted 22 Wave turnovers into 25 points, while Pepperdine scored just nine points of 20 Pilot miscues.
Jasmine Wooton scored a game-high 16 points, Kari Luttinen added 15 points and Alexis Byrd chipped in 13 to lead Portland.
