 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jordan Baker scored 21 points and Pepperdine held off a late rally by Loyola Marymount for a 60-57 victory on Thursday night.

Lorne Jackson scored 13 points for the Waves (10-9, 2-4 West Coast) and Stacy Davis grabbed 10 rebounds.

Loyola Marymount (8-12, 1-6) had a 29-22 lead with 5:34 left in the first half, but Pepperdine went on a 15-4 run in the closing moments for a 37-33 lead at the half.

Loyola Marymount tied it at 43 with 14:41 left in the game, then went cold, missing seven shots in a row. But it got back in the game, using a press to fuel a 9-0 run. It got as close as 59-57, but a Pepperdine free throw with 2:21 remaining proved to be the final point of the game.

Anthony Ireland and Ayodeji Egbeymi each scored 14 points to lead Loyola Marymount.
