Gonzaga's West Coast Conference home schedule is down to four games, including a sold-out matchup with the Pepperdine Waves that will start in 15 minutes at McCarthey Athletic Center. The first-place Bulldogs (17-5, 7-1) enter with a five-game winning streak, having won seven of their last eight. Last-place Pepperdine (4-15, 1-7) is on a six-game losing skid, including an 80-46 home setback to Gonzaga on Jan. 24. Pepperdine is the only team with three conference wins against Gonzaga since 2004-05.
