MALIBU, Calif. -- Stacy Davis had his third double-double of the season with 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Pepperdine overcame a 12-point deficit early in the second half for a 54-47 victory over Portland on Saturday night.
The key sequence for the Waves (9-6, 1-1 West Coast) was a 12-0 run that enabled them to tie the game at 39 with slightly less than 9 minutes left in the game. Freshman walk-on guard Austin Mills led the charge by scoring the first seven of those points.
Jordan Baker had 10 points and nine rebounds for Pepperdine.
Portland had a 43-38 rebounding advantage.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
