Waves Keep It Close

By David Scott - December 20, 2006

HARTFORD - A spirited latter half of the first stanza by Pepperdine has made a game out of it, trimming the Husky lead to six at halftime, 40-36.

Pepperdine’s Tomas Pranciliauskas has single-handedly kept the Waves in the game with 14 first-half points on 4 of 5 shooting from 3-point land. Hasheem Thabeet has 12 for UConn, which really fell apart on the defensive end during the last minutes of the half.

. . . The teams, through the first 17-plus minutes of play, had combined for just 7 fouls (only two for UConn). They finished the half with a combined 11 fouls (three for UConn).

. . . Pranciliauskas is a sophomore for the Waves and hails from Vilnius, Lithuania.

. . . We’ll back with halftime stats and observations - stay tuned.
