HOUSTON -- Lorne Jackson scored five of his 17 points in overtime, including a crucial 3-pointer, and Pepperdine outlasted Houston Baptist 57-53 on Tuesday night.
Raines scored Pepperdine's first two basket of the extra period, and Houston Baptist (3-2) couldn't catch up after that.
A layup by Art Bernardi with 59 seconds left and a free throw by Marcel Smith with 24 seconds left brought Houston Baptist closer, but a pair of free throws by Jackson with 17 seconds to go iced it for Pepperdine.
Purdue coach Matt Painter says players haven't used the fifth-year graduate transfer rule for its true intent.
The 2017 recruiting class is short on point guards, with Trevon Duval leading only eight prospects from the ESPN 60 who are still available.
The dust has settled after players made their NBA draft decisions. Which college teams won? Which lost? Well, Villanova is pretty happy. USC, meanwhile, might not be as thrilled.
