    MALIBU, Calif. -- Mychel Thompson scored a career-best 25 points, Lorne Jackson added 18 and Pepperdine snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 76-64 victory over inconsistent Utah on Wednesday night.

    Keion Bell had 17 points and nine rebounds for the Waves (4-10), who hadn't won since beating Monmouth 3 1/2 weeks ago. Pepperdine never trailed against the Utes (5-7), taking a 17-point lead in the first half and never letting the margin drop below five in the final minutes.

    Carlon Brown scored 21 points and Marshall Henderson added 20, but their Utah teammates uniformly struggled in their third straight defeat. Utah hadn't lost to Pepperdine since the 1979 NCAA tournament.
