Thanks to the folks at TheW.tv, we're pleased to bring you a live stream of tonight's pivotal West Coast Conference game between the San Francisco Dons and Pepperdine Waves. Tip off for this web-exclusive game is set for 7:00 PM Pacific.
Tonight's game is the second-to-last game of the regular season for both teams involved. As a result, tonight will help sort out the seeds in the upcoming WCC tournament.
San Francisco, 18-10 (11-5), enters tonight in third place, half a game behind second place BYU. The Cougars, by virtue of a season sweep of the Dons, hold the tiebreaker. For the Dons to move up into second place they will need to win tonight, defeat LMU on Saturday as well as see the Cougars lose at San Diego on Saturday. Considering San Diego took down Gonzaga in its last outing, that's not out of the question.
Pepperdine, 15-13 (8-8), enters tonight in fifth place, and is guaranteed to finish no worse than sixth. The top six seeds in the tournament earn first round byes. However, the Waves can fall into sixth. If Pepperdine finishes with the same record as Portland (7-9), the Waves would fall to sixth. The Waves and Pilots split their regular season series but Portland, by virtue of a victory over first place Gonzaga, holds the tie-breaker.
