SAN DIEGO (AP) - Lamond Murray Jr. scored 17 points, Nolan Taylor and Jeremy Major added 10 apiece, and Pepperdine notched its first road win of the season in 10 tries with a 65-60 victory over San Diego on Saturday night.

Pepperdine (9-17, 5-9 West Coast) led the entire second half, but San Diego pulled to 45-42 on Mark Carbone’s 3-pointer with 13:04 remaining. Jonathan Allen answered with a 3 to get the lead back to six.

A jumper from Juwan Gray cut the deficit to four, 51-47, with 5:10 to play, but Nolan Taylor responded in kind to give the Waves a six-point lead.

Pepperdine trailed 17-13 midway through the first half but finished on a 27-10 run to lead at intermission 40-27. The Waves shot 67 percent from the field before the break compared to 38 percent for San Diego.

San Diego (11-15, 4-10) lost its fourth straight while Pepperdine has won three in a row.
