Santa Clara Vs. Pepperdine: Broncos Struggles Continue

The Santa Clara Broncos lost yet again, dropping a 63-57 home decision to the Pepperdine Waves. Santa Clara dropped to 0-15 in conference play and extended their current losing streak to 16 games in what has been a nightmare conference season. The Broncos have long since secured the nine seed in the WCC tournament and will likely face Portland in the play-in game. Portland still has a game left to pull even with Pepperdine, but they are traveling to BYU, which is a likely loss.

The Broncos continue their season with star scorer Kevin Foster sidelined through the postseason due to a rules violation. The Broncos were struggling in conference play with him in the lineup, so removing him has only made things worse. Freshman Denzel Johnson has stepped up at times, but even he is returning to earth. He had 11 points and nine rebounds in the defeat Thursday night. Raymond Cowels III led the team in scoring with 15 points, while Evan Roquemore added 12 points, six rebounds and five assists.

Santa Clara wraps up their season this Saturday with a trip to Southern California to face Loyola Marymount. Santa Clara will then play the Wednesday play-in game at the WCC tournament in Las Vegas.
