LOS ANGELES -- Drew Viney scored 21 points as Loyola Marymount pulled out an 82-79 victory over Pepperdine on Wednesday night.
The Lions (10-17, 2-10 West Coast) led most of the game and were ahead by as many as 14 points late in the first half.
The Waves (11-18, 5-7) caught up in the second half and took a brief lead with about four minutes left when Lorne Jackson hit a 3-pointer to make it 75-74.
Viney, however, answered with a quick layup and the Lions never trailed again.
