Recap: Pepperdine vs. BYU

Malibu, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Behind a career-high 24 points from Malcolm Brooks, the Pepperdine Waves took down the BYU Cougars, 80-74, in a West Coast Conference showdown at Firestone Fieldhouse.

Brooks shot 8-of-12 from the field for Pepperdine (9-5, 2-0 WCC), including 6- of-9 from beyond the arc. Jeremy Major scored 13 points, while Stacy Davis tallied a double-double of 12 points and 14 rebounds.
