MALIBU, Calif. -- Kyle Randall scored 19 points and Central Michigan beat Pepperdine 80-77 Sunday night, handing them their first loss at home this season.
Pepperdine (6-4) had six players in double figures in a game with plenty of 3-pointers.
Central Michigan (5-4) had a season-high 14 3-pointers.
Pepperdine had a season-high 11 3-pointers.
Central Michigan led 32-30 at halftime. Pepperdine trailed by as many as 13 in the second half and cut the lead to one when Lorne Jackson hit a 3-pointer at 0.02. But Randall hit two free throws.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
