Both the Broncos and Waves know where they will be when the WCC Tournament begins in Las Vegas. Pepperdine can't fall below the No. 6 seed in the conference, while the Broncos will certainly be in the opening round.
But what the final seeding for these teams will be is still up in the air. That makes today's game all about securing its spot in the league as the battle to get to the NCAA Tournament looms.
With a win, Pepperdine is certain to be the No. 5 seed in the conference. But if the Broncos pull this one out, the Waves will have to wait and see what happens with both San Diego and Portland before knowing their fate.
There is a lot on the line as we see what happens here at 5 p.m. Pacific.
