Pepperdine Basketball Star Named WCC Player of the Week

After delivering key performances in recent match-ups, senior guard Lamond Murray Jr. was named West Coast Conference Player of the Week for the first time in his career. The Los Angeles native averaged 24.0 points, 8.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists over the last two games, one of which was a solid 82-72 home victory over Pacific.  

Murray currently leads the WCC in scoring both overall and in league games, averaging 20.7 and 22.0, respectively. In the last eight of nine games, the senior has scored at least 22 points per appearance, and has reached the 20-point mark in 14 matches during the 2016-17 season. 

With 496 points this season, Murray is on his way to hitting yet another career milestone.

The senior is soon to become the first Waves player with back-to-back 500-point seasons since Glen McGowan (2004-5). 

Murray passed the 1,300-point mark in his career last week — becoming the 21st Wave to do so — and ranks number 20 on the Waves’ all-time scoring list with 1,326 points.

The Malibu Times is the first newspaper in Malibu, serving the community since 1946.
