Wilson, Jackson Take Part in WCC Basketball Tip-Off Event
Pepperdine will make two appearances on Time Warner Sports' WCC Game of the Week.
Oct. 29, 2012
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - Pepperdine men's basketball coach Marty Wilson and senior guard Lorne Jackson headed down to the new Time Warner Cable Sportsnet studios for the second annual Weat Coast Conference Tip-Off on Monday.
The duo met with members of the media, took part in live video and audio programs and filmed content that will appear in various mediums over the course of the season.
The conference announced a new long-term partnership with Time Warner that will include a "Game of the Week". Pepperdine will appear in the Game of the Week twice this season (2/2 vs. San Francisco and 2/9 at Portland) and will also have a few other yet-to-be announced games on the channel.
Though the Waves were picked ninth in the WCC's preseason coaches' poll, it should be noted that each of the last four years (since Wilson rejoined the program) Pepperdine has outperformed its predicted finish.
The Waves have their lone home exhibition this Saturday (Nov. 3) at 5 p.m. in Firestone Fieldhouse against Cal Lutheran. WaveCasts will provide a free video webstream at pepperdinesports.com.
