San Francisco Spoils Davis’ Historic Night

Malibu Ca.--  History was made at Pepperdine University on Thursday night when the Waves took on the University of San Francisco Dons. Pepperdine's Stacy Davis became the all-time leading scorer in Pepperdine men's basketball history. Unfortunately for Davis and his team, USF proved to be too much to handle, and the Dons left Firestone Fieldhouse with an 82-72 victory. Pepperdine entered the game riding high after road victories over Pacific, and conference powerhouse, St. Mary's last week. The first half of Thursday night's game was nip and tuck throughout, with both teams playing a high up-tempo style of offense. Both squads looked to push the pace whenever possible, and sometimes when it was not possible.

The teams exchanged leads 11 times in the half and neither team was able to stretch their lead to more than 4 points. The first half came to an end with USF forward Uche Ofoebu hitting a corner 3 to give the Dons a 42-41 lead at the break. Ronnie Boyce led the way for USF in the half with 17 points on 8-11 shooting. The highlight of the half, however, came at about the midway point, when Pepperdine senior  forward Stacy Davis hit a lay up to become the all-time leading scorer in the history of Pepperdine basketball. After the basket the crowd rose to their feet and chanted Davis' name through the TV timeout that followed the basket, Davis finished the half as the Waves leading scorer with 16 points.   USF started the second half in a 2-3 zone defense, which confused the Waves, and  helped USF go on a quick 7-0 run to open the half. USF point guard Devin Watson was also a key component to the Dons run, as he was a one man fast break. Pushing the pace with hard drives to the basket ending in free throws or a drive and kick to an open teammate, Watson finished the game with 21 points and 7 assists. The flow of the second half was much less fluid than the opening 20 minutes, the two teams combined for 25 fouls in the second half. At the 10 minute mark it seemed that the accelerated pace of the game was finally starting to wear on both teams. USF, leading by 5 at the time, became content to walk the ball up court on offense, and both teams went cold, with no points being scored for over 2 minutes of game time. After a timeout with 7 minutes left in the game both teams seemed to find their legs and the pace of the game again picked up. Having trouble finding shots against the zone, Pepperdine looked to their big man Jett Raines to get them back into the game. Raines was able to put in 14 second half points and keep the game within a reach, but with just under 3 minutes to play, USF's Devin Watson connected on back to back 3-point shots, pushing the lead to double digits and giving the Dons the breathing room they needed to close out the game. USF's Ronnie Boyce finished as the games leading scorer with 25 points, but it was

Devin Watson who was the MVP for San Francisco. Watson finished the game with 21 points and 7 assists, and his relentless attack on the basket all night long set the tone for his team, and as a true leader, Watson was able to put the game away late with a couple of clutch 3-point baskets. Stacy Davis led the way for Pepperdine with 20 points and 12 rebounds on his record breaking night.   With the loss Pepperdine falls to 9-7 in conference and will take on Santa Clara this Saturday, in what will be their last home game of the season. USF will be on the road at Loyola Marymount University this weekend, and with the win the Dons improve to 9-7 in conference play as well.

    cartierlovejesduas Totalmente de acuerdo, Giardino es mejor guitarrista que Slash, Giardino es más completo como compositor, y mucho más técnico, eso lo admito, aunque por gusto personal me quede con Slash. Es muy cierto que la fama de Slash se debe en gran medida al éxito que Guns tuvo como banda, y no por un virtuosismo propio de Slash, incluso eso es algo que el propio Slash admite en diversas entrevistas. En cuanto a lo de la improvisación, eso es algo que no comparto, Slash improvisa bastante en vivo, tal vez no como un virtuoso, pero si lo hace, eso lo puedes apreciar por ejemplo en el tema de la película el Padrino, canción que siempre toco durante el tour mundial de Guns, o en un famoso video que circula por Internet donde aparece improvisando en una presentación junto a Zakk Wylde sobre la base de un tema de Hendrix.

    cartierbraceletlove I know this is an older post, but your comments about young men in an RV (which is what we call a caravan here in the States) reminded me of camping with my son when he was in his teens. When he outgrew sharing a bed, we just pitched a pup tent right outside the door. Most of the campgrounds we used were mixed RV and tent camping and once we explained our need for an ‘extra bedroom’, didn’t mind. The tent became the ‘boys dorm’ and a place for the older kids to get away from the younger ones for a bit when necessary.

    Hi Kim – good information. Here is my situation, a little different. Maybe there is an easy solution for this from your bottomless bag of tricks. When I came on to twitter, I was mainly trying to connect with other “Training, Learning, and Training Development” professionals. I have a number of those that I follow and that follow me. As I moved into internet marketing, I began to add many people from that arena. Eventually, I decided that I would do better connecting with both groups, but especially the TLTD professionals, if I separated the account into two accounts. So I created a new account using another short version of my name for the TLTD folks (now the distinct minority of the total number). That’s as far as I got. About all I can think of is to start over in that account by following all of the same TLTD folks I followed in my original account in that new account, but getting them to follow me back will be a long slow deal. Is this really the only way to do it?
