2009-10 PEPPERDINE WOMEN’S BASKETBALL • 1


SEASON OUTLOOK Pepperdine Women’s Basketball Coach Julie Rousseau has chosen excellence as the theme for the 2009-10 Pepperdine women’s basketball team. “Living lives dedicated to excellence in every facet of our lives will be the focus,” said Rousseau, who begins her sixth season in charge of the program. “Our team has made a commitment to focus on excellence in our overall program, producing better results in the classroom, excelling on the court and investing in the quality of our personal lives.” Although the Waves lost five seniors from a team that went 16-13 overall last year, Rousseau is very positive about the upcoming season with the team that remains and the addition of five outstanding freshmen. “We lost five great leaders,” said Rousseau. “They helped the whole program learn a great deal about what team dynamics, camaraderie and the value of caring for one another really looks like. I am also confident that our young team will benefit immensely from the two outstanding seniors and one junior that will assume leadership this year.” On the team’s third-place WCC finish of last year, Rousseau said: “Now we have to build on last year’s finish and continue to make strides toward excellence through more consistent effort, positive attitudes and a daily commitment to hard work and success.” The team dynamics are already taking shape and Rousseau believes she has the makings of something special. “This is an exciting time for Pepperdine women’s basketball,” said Rousseau, who is assisted by Maylana Martin Douglas, Darryl Brown and Maurice Hilliard. “As we started our workouts I have been impressed by how well our freshmen take directions. They are a hard-working group with a strong desire to experience success. It’s very exciting for me as a coach to see their character displayed so vividly – it’s quite refreshing.” Rousseau credits her two seniors — Miranda Ayim and Taylor Snider — with being instrumental in bringing the team together so quickly. “Miranda and Taylor stayed this summer and took classes so they could be with the freshmen and help them adjust to their new environment,” said Rousseau. “That display of leadership is what we hope will make the difference throughout the entire season.” Ayim (London, Ontario, Canada/ Saunders Secondary) turned down an opportunity to play for the Canadian National Team in order to stay in Malibu this summer. The 6-foot-3 senior center was named to the 2009 All-West Coast Conference first team for the second straight year. She led the team in scoring (11.5) and rebounding (5.4). Ayim had 20 double-digit scoring games last season. An academic standout, she was selected as Pepperdine’s Female Scholar-

MIRANDA AYIM Athlete of the Year, made the CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District third team and was on the WCC All-Academic team for the second time. “This is the year that we look for Miranda to bring her God-given talents to the forefront,” Rousseau said. “She is a great player on a team that is supportive and looks up to her as their leader. She has always been a stellar ambassador for our program and the athletic department in various capacities.” Snider (Chicago, Ill./Whitney Young HS/Allen County CC) also stayed in Malibu for two summer sessions in order to improve her fitness and to get ahead academically. The 5-foot-11 forward played in 13 games last season and averaged 0.5 points and 1.5 rebounds. “Taylor is committed to making a difference and being a great example for the underclassmen,” said Rousseau. “Taylor’s journey has not always been the smoothest, but I am very proud of her resilience and perseverance as she has matured heading into her final year here at Pepperdine.” Joy Lelo (La Canada, Calif./La Canada HS) is the lone junior on the Waves’ roster in terms of eligibility. The 5-foot-8 guard started in 10 of 29 games last season and averaged 4.2 points per game. She had three double-digit scoring games. “Joy has grown a great deal since she’s been at Pepperdine,” said Rousseau. “She’s a quiet leader and plays with a lot of passion and fire. She will be the only senior after this season, so she will have to step out of her comfort zone even more. Her presence has been felt as she provides wisdom and assumes more of a leadership role.”

JOY LELO Katie Menton (Coarsegold, Calif./ Yosemite HS) is a redshirt sophomore. The 5-foot-10 guard played six games last season, averaging 10.7 points, before having to redshirt due to an injury. In her first season, she was named to the 2008 WCC All-Freshman team. “It’s been a long journey back for Katie and she’s ready to resume the brilliant play she exhibited last season,” Rousseau said. Four sophomores, a redshirt freshman and five true freshmen make up the rest of the roster. “I expect the sophomores to make significant contributions this season,” said Rousseau. “As freshmen last season, they contributed greatly to the success of our team. Over the summer they have already made tremendous contributions, as they have seamlessly transitioned into mentoring roles with the freshmen. They have exemplified a key principle of true leadership — that of knowing when to follow and when to lead. “In the upcoming season they will need to step up and perform as veterans beyond their years. They learned by example from last year’s senior class, which was outstanding in its leadership roles. Now they are the ones looking out for their younger teammates.” Rousseau quoted 2008-09 senior Taylor Smith at the end of season awards banquet: “I leave here knowing that this team is in good hands,” said Smith. “This freshman class is so mature when I compare them to my freshman year. I was amazed at both their talent and composure.” Rousseau remarked that as freshmen, these individuals played in almost every game last year.

2009-10 PEPPERDINE WOMEN’S BASKETBALL • 2


SEASON OUTLOOK “I’m counting on the experience that they gained their freshman year,” she said. Skye Barnett (Albuquerque, N.M./ Cibola HS) played in 28 games her freshman year and the 5-foot-11 guard averaged 3.8 points per game and 3.4 rebounds. “Skye is a powerful force on the court and plays with great tenacity and relentlessness on both ends,” said Rousseau. “Her versatility allows her to make multiple contributions. She has matured a lot from the experience she gained last season and the work she has put in. Both will propel her into playing a significant role this season.” Lauren Bell (San Bruno, Calif./Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep) played in all 29 games as a freshman. The 5-foot-8 guard averaging 3.0 points per game. She will be counted on to fill a void at the point guard position. “Lauren was mentored well by last year’s starting point guard, Nakeya Isabell,” said Rousseau. “Lauren learned a lot last year, worked extremely hard in the offseason, attended ‘Point Guard College’ and is now ready to lead our program this upcoming season. She’s ready to lead our team.” Jazmine Jackson (Oakland, Calif./ Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep) was selected to the WCC All-Freshman team and was named to the All-WCC honorable mention team. The 5-foot-9 guard started 12 of 27 games. She was the team’s second-highest scorer with an average of 9.6 points per game and ranked fifth in the WCC with 2.1 steals. “Jazmine’s leadership ability and toughness makes everyone around her better,” said Rousseau. “She possesses a high level of competitiveness and worked extremely hard this summer to improve her outside shot and strength in the weight room. She is a special talent and ready to lead.” Alex Jarrell (Shelbyville, Tenn./ Shelbyville HS) started in 12 of 29 games her freshman season. The 6-foot-4 center averaged 4.4 points per game. “Alex finished the season very well as a freshman and that served as a preview of what she will accomplish this season with a year of collegiate experience under her belt,” said Rousseau. “She is a competitor and passionate about her play and winning. These two attributes alone make Alex an exceptional person and player.” One other member of that class redshirted last season. Audrey Miller (Portland, Ore./Central Catholic HS), a 5-foot10 guard, will make her first contributions this season. “Audrey brings a wealth of knowledge about the game of basketball as well as the ability to play at a high level,” Rousseau said. “She has waited a long time to display her talents and no one will be disappointed.” Rousseau is confident that this freshman class can fill the void of losing five seniors from last year, but knows that her team is very young and lacks the experience of more veteran teams.

LAUREN BELL “This group of freshmen is similar to last year’s freshman class in terms of desire and ability to be on the court and contribute,” said Rousseau. “They know what it means to have success as they had championship success on their high school teams. These student-athletes are a great compliment to what we already have. They are allowing themselves to be led and are working extremely hard. There’s great chemistry and balance among them.” Shay Cooney-Williams (Frisco, Texas/Frisco HS), a 5-foot-6 point guard, made the all-state first team and was selected as a McDonald’s All-American nominee her senior year. She averaged 14.1 points per game, 6.9 assists, five rebounds and four steals. “Shay will be counted on to partner with Lauren Bell as the coach on the floor for our team,” said Rousseau. “She is a quick learner and desires to be the best player and person possible.” Jade McNorton (Boise, Idaho/ Centennial HS) is a 6-foot-3 post who earned prep All-American honors for a state runner-up squad that went undefeated until the championship game. She averaged 13 points, nine rebounds and three blocks. “Jade possesses great athleticism and is a skilled player,” Rousseau said. “Her size gives us great depth in the post.” Kelsey Patrick (Mukilteo, Wash./ Kamiak HS) a 6-foot forward, was a 2009 McDonald’s All-American nominee. She averaged 11.5 points per game her senior year and 8.7 rebounds. Patrick helped her team reach the state tournament. “Kelsey’s versatility, toughness and work ethic make her a special person,” said Rousseau. “Everything she does is with great zeal and a desire to be her best. That’s a

JAZMINE JACKSON wonderful contribution to our team dynamics.” Doris Park-Sherman (Newbury Park, Calif./Newbury Park HS) a 6-foot-1 forward, was tabbed Ventura County’s Female Player of the Year. She averaged 16 points, 12 rebounds and three steals per game. She helped lead her team to an undefeated season and a league championship. “Doris is a tough player who is crafty, relentless and has a knack for scoring in a myriad of ways,” said Rousseau. “She brings a quiet confidence to the team as well as versatility.” T’Keyah Shealy (Englewood, Colo./ Regis Jesuit HS) is a 5-foot-11 guard/forward who led her school to a state title and was tabbed all-state first team in 2009. She averaged 14.2 points, eight rebounds and three assists per game. “T’Keyah is an amazing athlete with huge potential,” said Rousseau. “She plays the game hard, she plays with a lot of heart. She is extremely versatile, playing hard defensively, hitting the boards and attacking the offensive end in several ways. She is an exciting player to watch.” In conclusion, Rousseau believes that a team can only be as good as each individual works to be, and it is essential that everyone understands that. She says she has players that hold themselves accountable to be the best they can be, who are selfmotivated and selfless. “There’s a great atmosphere around Pepperdine women’s basketball this season,” said Rousseau. “There is freshness and the presence of untapped waters. I have a great staff with excellent support and a team primed for excellence. A healthy environment promotes success. I’m very excited. In this case, ‘youth’ is a good thing.”

COACHING STAFF


COACHES

JULIE ROUSSEAU HEAD COACH — SIXTH SEASON The fifth head coach in Pepperdine women’s basketball history, Julie Rousseau heads into her sixth season in Malibu in 2009-10. The former head coach of the WNBA’s Los Angeles Sparks took the Waves to the 2006 NCAA Tournament and has the team poised for future success. Following an impressive 2008-09 season, she has the Waves primed for another strong year with a roster full of young and talented student-athletes. During summer 2009, she was an assistant coach on the USA women’s basketball squad that went undefeated and won a gold medal at the World University Games in Belgrade, Serbia. She coached some of the best collegiate talent in the country and was assigned defensive and post player responsibilities by head coach Charli Turner-Thorne. Rousseau took Pepperdine to the NCAA Tournament faster than any women’s basketball coach in school history, accomplishing the feat in just her second season at the helm. As the fourth seed in the 2006 WCC Tournament, her squad tied a conference record as the lowest-seeded team to win the title and earn an automatic bid to “the Dance.” After beating top-seeded Santa Clara in the championship game and earning an unexpected spot in the NCAA Tournament, the 15th-seeded Waves were matched up against second-seeded Oklahoma at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colo. In 2008-09, the Waves went 16-13 overall and took third place in the WCC with a 9-5 record. The Waves posted the most overall and conference wins in her tenure and matched the best conference finish. During Rousseau’s five seasons, the Waves have had seven All-WCC first team selections, five WCC All-Freshman team members, four WCC All-Tournament honorees and four WCC All-Academic selections. Her teams have a cumulative 66-82 record. Under her guidance, Daphanie Kennedy led the conference in scoring in 2007-08 (22.0 points in WCC games only). Rousseau holds the distinction of being the only Pepperdine coach to win his or her first conference game, as the Waves defeated San Diego on the road, 78-56, on Jan. 6, 2005. The Waves have won at least one game in three of five WCC Tournament appearances under Rousseau and are 5-4 at the event. Rousseau was hired on May 7, 2004, after spending the previous four years as an assistant coach on Tara VanDerveer’s staff at Stanford. She replaced Mark Trakh, who left Pepperdine after 11 seasons to take the helm at USC. During Rousseau’s four years at Stanford, the Cardinal compiled an overall record of 105-26 (.801), finished first in the Pacific-10 Conference each year while recording a 59-13 league mark (.819) and advancing to the NCAA Tournament all four years. That included a spot in the Elite Eight in 2004. During her time at Stanford, Rousseau was involved in recruiting, conditioning and scouting. Rousseau was a member of the Los Angeles Sparks’ organization from May 1997 to July 1998. She served as an assistant coach and interim head coach before being promoted to head coach in December 1997. Prior to her time in the WNBA, she was the head coach at George Washington Preparatory High School in Los Angeles from 1992-97. She led the Lady Generals to postseason appearances in each of her five seasons, and came away with the L.A. City championship in 1996. She was awarded the Budget “Coach of the Year” Award, presented by The Women’s Sports Foundation, in 1997. At George Washington, Rousseau began as an assistant with the girls’ varsity team as well as the head coach of the boys’ freshman/sophomore teams. She has been involved in numerous summer leagues and camps, including Hoopin’ with Jamila and the Michael Jordan Camp. Rousseau played one season at UC Irvine and later graduated from Cal State Los Angeles in 1991 with a degree in education. She is currently working on a master’s degree in psychology at Pepperdine, which she believes will “continue my personal growth and ability to meet the needs of our young women.”

COACHES

JULIE ROUSSEAU — USA BASKETBALL During summer 2009, Julie Rousseau served as an assistant coach for the USA World University Games squad and helped the Americans bring back the gold medal. The USA won the gold-medal game with an 83-64 win over Russia and went undefeated with a 7-0 record in the tournament, which was held in Belgrade, Serbia. Rousseau was thrilled with her experience, saying: “It was absolutely wonderful. Just to be part of international play, being in an Olympic-like atmosphere, having the opportunity to represent your country and being able to chant ‘U-S-A’, it was an amazing opportunity. To be there and stand for something more than just yourself or your school, but for your country, was really patriotic.” The head coach of the squad was Charli Turner Thorne of Arizona State and the other assistant coach was Suzy Merchant of Michigan State. Rousseau planned on taking what she learned from her fellow coaches and using it to her benefit at Pepperdine. “Being able to be in the midst of two other head coaches and see how they perceive and approach the game, I couldn’t help but learn from them,” she said. “We ran some of the same types of offenses that we run at Pepperdine, but saw some different twists and options that I’ll probably implement this year ... We preached to the kids defense and rebounding and that’s what the difference was in winning the gold medal. That’s what we do in our system here at Pepperdine, so it was good to see again how defense and rebounding impact the game and bring about success.” Being able to represent Pepperdine on a team filled with BCS-level players and coaches was also a highlight for Rousseau. “Representing Pepperdine was huge,” she said. “All these kids from big schools, and knowing that Pepperdine was part of it, was something that I really valued. Some of these Olympiclevel athletes are telling me they want to come visit Pepperdine. If we were able to bring Pepperdine recognition to a few more people, then it was good.” Unfortunately, as an assistant coach Rousseau wasn’t able to come home with a gold medal of her own, but she is content with having the experience of a lifetime. “The memories will last a lifetime and the experience was so rewarding,” she said. “What it symbolized, winning gold for our country, that memory and that knowledge alone is worth its weight in gold.”

COACHES

MAYLANA MARTIN DOUGLAS ASSISTANT COACH — SECOND SEASON One of the top players in UCLA’s history and a former All-American, Maylana Martin Douglas begins her second season as an assistant coach with the Pepperdine women’s basketball program in 2009-10. “What initially drew me here were Julie Rousseau and the opportunities at Pepperdine,” said Martin Douglas. “Pepperdine is a great university, in one of the most beautiful places on earth, and it has a great basketball tradition. The balance that everything provides here bodes well for the program’s future.” Martin Douglas began her coaching career at West Coast Conference rival Portland for the 2002-03 season, then returned to her alma mater, UCLA, as an assistant coach beginning with the 2004-05 school year. In four seasons in Westwood, the Bruins went 67-56 overall, and in 2006 they won the Pacific-10 Conference Tournament, advanced to the NCAA Tournament second round and were ranked #21 in the country. Martin Douglas was one of UCLA’s all-time great players, earning Kodak AllAmerican first team honors in 1999 and finishing up second on the school’s all-time scoring list with 2,101 points. Including the storied men’s program, she is fourth among all scorers (men’s and women’s) in UCLA history. She ended her career sixth all-time in the Pac-10 in scoring and eighth in rebounding (935). She was voted the Pac-10 Player of the Year in 1999 and the Pac-10’s Freshman of the Year in 1997. She became one of just four players to be named to the allconference first team for four straight seasons. During her four-year career from 1997-2000, the Bruins made three straight NCAA Tournament appearances and advanced to the Elite Eight in 1999 (the school’s best result since 1978). The 10th selection in the first round of the 2000 WNBA Draft by Minnesota, Martin Douglas went on to play two seasons with the Lynx and also played with the Charlotte Sting. Her basketball career was cut short by a back injury. As a prep star at Perris (Calif.) High School, Martin Douglas was named Riverside County Player of the Year for four straight years and was a WBCA, Nike and Parade All-American as a senior. She represented her country as a captain on the gold-medalwinning USA Junior National Team in 1997 and led the team in scoring and rebounding.

COACHES

DARRYL BROWN ASSISTANT COACH — SECOND SEASON A former head coach at the Division II level, Darryl Brown will be in his second season as an assistant women’s basketball coach at Pepperdine in 2009-10. “I’m really pleased to be here,” said Brown at his hiring. “First and foremost, my relationship and the tremendous respect I have for Coach Julie Rousseau is the first thing that brought me here. The uniqueness of this university is a special draw. I’m looking forward to this team’s success both academically and athletically.” Brown was the head women’s basketball coach at Cheyney University, an NCAA Division II school in Cheyney, Pa., for two seasons (2006-07 and 2007-08), and was an assistant coach there the two years before that. His 2007-08 team posted the school’s best record in 18 years and Brown earned Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Coach of the Year honors. Cheyney went 11-16 overall and took third place in the PSAC’s Eastern Division at 7-5. He was the interim coach in 2006-07. His squads posted better than a 3.2 grade-point average. At the collegiate level, Brown has also been an assistant coach at Temple for two seasons (1998-99 and 1999-2000) and at Montclair State for one season (2001-02). He began his coaching career by working with youth in the Philadelphia area through his involvement with the Police Athletic League. In three years as an assistant coach at Norristown Area (Pa.) High School, he helped the team post three 20-win seasons and appearances in the District Final Four and the second round of the state playoffs. Seven players received Division I scholarships and three others went on to play at the Division II level. Several players throughout Brown’s coaching career have gone on to play professionally overseas. A native of Philadelphia, Brown attended Overbrook High School and graduated from The Fox School of Business at Temple University in 1995.

PEPPERDINE HISTORY


HISTORY

PEPPERDINE BASKETBALL With seven postseason appearances in the last 11 seasons, the Pepperdine women’s basketball team has developed into a consistent winner and a contender in the West Coast Conference. Over the last 14 seasons, Pepperdine has posted a winning record 10 times and has recorded 20-win seasons on six occasions. The Waves made their first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance in 2000 with an at-large bid, then captured the WCC Tournament title and subsequent NCAA appearances in 2002, 2003 and 2006. Pepperdine also won or shared four WCC regular-season titles during a five-season span. In addition to NCAA appearances, the Waves were invited to the WNIT in 1999, 2001 and 2004. All-time, the Waves have a record of 544-446 (.549) over 34 seasons and 11 postseason appearances. Pepperdine began sponsoring women’s basketball during the 1975-76 season under the direction of head coach Marcia Cantrell. Patty Meyers assumed the head coaching duties the following year and quickly transformed Pepperdine into one of the region’s top programs. During a four-year span from 197778 through 1980-81, Meyers led the Waves to a cumulative record of 103-33 (.757) and three appearances in the AIAW Championships. Then, after the 1981-82 season, Pepperdine earned a berth to the eight-team National Women’s Invitation Tournament in Amarillo, Texas. In seven seasons, Meyers put together a record of 146-70 (.676). Forward Kim Bueltel earned All-American honors during this time period. Bueltel ended her career as the school’s all-time leading scorer (1,968) and rebounder (1,270). She is now second in scoring and is still first in rebounding. Ron Fortner began his 10-year tenure as the Waves’ head coach prior to the 1983-84 campaign, and guided the program from NCAA Division I independent status to membership in the WCC in 1985-86. The league has shown marked improvement since its formation as member schools have increased scholarship support. The WCC began sponsoring a postseason tournament in 1992 that included the league’s top four teams and the tournament was expanded RON FORTNER to include eight schools in 1995. Fortner markedly improved Pepperdine’s schedule, and led the Waves to a cumulative record of 131-153 (.461). Fortner also developed a number of outstanding players, including AllAmerican Maureen Formico, the school’s all-time leading scorer

(2,190). In June of 1993, Mark Trakh of nearby Brea Olinda High School in Orange County was hired to direct the program. Despite a lack of significant depth on the roster, Pepperdine compiled an overall record of 14-12 during Trakh’s inaugural campaign in 1993-94. Under Trakh’s guidance, the Waves posted six straight 20-win seasons from 1998-2003. His 199899 team tied for the WCC regular-season title, a first for the program. The Waves MARK TRAKH went on to win outright regular-season crowns in 2000, 2002 and 2003. In the postseason, Trakh took the Waves to second-place finishes at the WCC Tournament in 1999 and 2000, then won back-to-back tournament titles in 2002 and 2003. Trakh’s teams made six straight postseason appearances, three in the NCAAs and three in the WNIT. Prior to the 2004-05 season, Julie Rousseau was handed the coaching reins. She brought with her a wealth of basketball experience, having been a head coach of the WNBA’s Los Angeles Sparks and an assistant coach at Stanford. In just her second season, Rousseau took the Waves back to the postseason. Despite finishing the year with a 1417 record, Rousseau led her team to a spectacular run at the WCC Tournament, as the Waves won three games in four days, including a 71-67 victory over top-seeded Santa Clara in the championship game. That gave the Waves a spot in the NCAA Tournament. Professionally, two former Pepperdine players have been noteworthy. Rasheeda Clark, who played for the Waves from 1999-2001 and was the 2000 WCC Player of the Year, became the school’s first-ever player to be chosen in the WNBA Draft. Then, Jennifer Lacy became the first WCC women’s basketball player to make a WNBA roster, as she won a spot with the Phoenix Mercury in 2006. Lacy was then part of the Mercury’s 2007 WNBA championship squad and is now with the Atlanta Dream.

FIRESTONE FIELDHOUSE Firestone Fieldhouse opened on Nov. 30, 1973, and it has long been the home of the Pepperdine women’s basketball program. Since the 1976-77 season, which spans the last 33 seasons, the Waves have compiled a 289-164 (.638) record in the Fieldhouse. Pepperdine has posted 26 winning seasons at home and just six sub-.500 seasons. All told, the Waves have posted a double-digit win total 15 times, including seven consecutive from 1997-2003. The singleseason record for home victories came during the 198081 campaign when Pepperdine posted a 15-4 record. The first home victory on record came against Cal State Los Angeles on Dec. 4, 1976. The multi-use facility, named in honor of Mr. Leonard K. Firestone, was officially dedicated by President Gerald R. Ford on September 20, 1975. Firestone Fieldhouse has a listed capacity of 3,104, althought 4,500 packed the gym in February 1976 to witness the men’s basketball team defeat nationally ranked UNLV, 93-91.

ATHLETICS PERFORMANCE CENTER In September 2009, Pepperdine unveiled the new Athletics Performance Center, a stateof-the-art strength and conditioning room for the benefit of the Waves’ varsity teams. The facility replaces the Firestone Fieldhouse weight room, which will continue to be available to the Pepperdine community. Speaking at the dedication ceremony, President Andrew Benton said the following: “I don’t know how you explain it, really, when you think about a school that is as young as this one, founded in 1937 and we’ve only been on campus since 1972. How do you explain the number of Olympians we’ve had? How do you explain the number of national championships we’ve had? How do you explain the number of conference championships we’ve had? It’s really a remarkable story, and a story that’s found in each and every one of you. I know you were recruited and had opportunities to play somewhere else, but you chose Pepperdine. And I’m so proud of that and so grateful for that. How do you explain that we win two-thirds of all athletics contests that we enter, and we play schools that many times larger than we are? The answer is heart and hard work. “We’ve been able to give you really good facilities in some areas. Someday we’re going to build a fabulous sports arena on this campus. But in the meanwhile we don’t want to stand still, we don’t want to hold back. You’ve got four years of competition and we want to put you in a position to compete at the highest possible level and to become Olympians and champions. So we felt we could support you by better training, and maybe we could find a place on this campus to dedicate to you for training, so you can be stronger, jump higher, run faster and continue to outperform the competition. “Some thanks have come my way today, but it is I who thank you, for the fact that you decided to compete for Pepperdine, and you’re a Wave. I’m so proud of our coaches and our student-athletes. This facility is dedicated to you, the student-athlete.”

THIS IS

“What we hope to build is much more than a beautiful campus. It will, as you can sense, be that. But if that is all we shall have accomplished, we shall have failed. What we hope to create here, in these hills, is a spirit of place. A place where minds will be opened, where lives will be changed, where lasting relationships will be formed.” — Seaver College Dedication, May 23, 1970


PEPPERDINE

• Malibu is located right alongside the Pacific Ocean, just about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Pepperdine’s picturesque campus is just a few hundred yards up the hill from Malibu Beach. The Malibu area, as well as all of Southern California, offers tremendous recreation, sporting and entertainment opportunities.

• Pepperdine’s motto is “Freely ye received, freely give” (Matt. 10:8).

• Pepperdine is an independent, medium-sized Christian institution committed to the highest standards of academic excellence and Christian values. • Approximately 8,000 students are enrolled in five colleges and schools, including Seaver College, the flagship undergraduate school of liberal arts and sciences. A bachelor’s degree is available in nearly 40 areas of study. • Pepperdine was ranked number 56 by the U.S. News and World Report’s list of America’s best colleges in 2009 (and is the only West Coast Conference school in the top 100). • Pepperdine was awarded the title of “Most Beautiful Campus” by the Princeton Review in 2005. • The student-to-faculty ratio is 13:1.


UNIVERSITY • Students and alumni consistently cite the quality, accessibility and caring nature of the faculty and staff as among Pepperdine’s major strengths. • There are 395 full-time teaching faculty, and 98% of full-time faculty have earned doctoral degrees. Students are provided with experiential opportunities, including research projects and internships so that their knowledge can be put to practice. • 75% of Pepperdine undergraduates receive some form of financial assistance. • Pepperdine University is respected both nationally and internationally. Students come to Pepperdine from all 50 states and more than 70 countries worldwide. Additionally, nearly 60% of Pepperdine’s undergraduate students study abroad at one point within one more than 20 international programs. • Pepperdine was recently voted as having the seventhbest study-abroad program in the nation by the Institute of International Education. Study-abroad programs include Heidelberg, Germany; London, England; Florence, Italy; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Lausanne, Switzerland; and Shanghai, China. • Among the 38 different majors offered, the top five at Seaver College are business administration, advertising, international studies, international business, psychology and political science. • The University was founded in 1937 by George Pepperdine, a Christian businessman who established the Western Auto Supply Company.


ATHLETIC

Pepperdine is classified as an NCAA Division I-AAA school (Division I schools that do not sponsor football), and the Waves are one of the very best of their kind. Since the I-AAA Athletic Director’s Association All-Sports Trophy was established, ranking the various schools on their postseason success, Pepperdine has finished in the top six every single time, including in first place twice (2004-05 and 2005-06). In the annual NACDA Director’s Cup standings, which measures overall postseason success, Pepperdine has finished first among all of its West Coast Conference rivals for 13 straight years.

Men’s Basketball

Jennifer Lacy

Over the years, the Pepperdine men’s basketball program has made 13 NCAA Tournament appearances, captured at least a share of 16 conference titles, won three West Coast Conference Tournament titles and sent dozens of players into professional basketball. Head coach Tom Asbury was one of the top coaches in the WCC’s history from 1989-94 and he has returned to Malibu to help the program thrive once again.

Baseball

The 1992 College World Series champions, Pepperdine baseball has recorded a remarkable 32 straight 30-win seasons. The Waves have advanced to the NCAA Championships 25 times, including five times under head coach Steve Rodriguez. Pepperdine has captured 17 regularseason WCC crowns and four WCC Championship Series titles. Twenty-nine alums have gone on to success in Major League Baseball. Dan Haren

Yakhouba Diawara

Women’s Basketball

With seven postseason appearances in the last 11 seasons, the Pepperdine women’s basketball team has developed into a consistent winner and a contender in the West Coast Conference. The Waves made their first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance in 2000 with an at-large bid, then captured the WCC Tournament title and subsequent NCAA appearances in 2002, 2003 and 2006, the most recent coming under head coach Julie Rousseau.

Cross Country / Track

Head coach Robert Radnoti has the goal of national prominence for his cross country and track programs. The Waves were extremely strong in these sports at their SouthCentral campus from the 1930s to the 1960s, with All-Americans and Olympians to their credit. However, the programs were dropped briefly when the university moved its campus to Malibu. The Waves have made great strides in cross country over the years and track was added again in the past few years.

Women’s Soccer

One of the youngest programs on Pepperdine’s campus, the women’s soccer team has quickly developed into among the strongest in recent years. Since its inaugural season in 1993, the Waves have posted 10-win seasons 10 times and made the NCAA Tournament five straight years from 2001-05. Head coach Tim Ward has helped his Waves reach the NCAA’s Sweet 16 on two occasions.

Anna Picarelli


SUCCESS Men’s Volleyball

Pepperdine’s most successful program has won five NCAA men’s volleyball championships, second-most of any school, with the last title coming in 2005. The program is synonymous with head coach Marv Dunphy, who was responsible for four of the titles and has also had a long association with USA Volleyball. Pepperdine has made the NCAA Championships event on 15 occasions, including six times in the past decade.

Jonathan Winder

Men’s Golf

The 1997 NCAA men’s golf champions and a regular at the top of the West Coast Conference’s leaderboard, Pepperdine competes with the nation’s best. The Waves have won 16 WCC titles since 1987 and have 11 straight NCAA regional appearances. Pepperdine won the NCAA title in John Geiberger’s first season and have posted two other top 10 national finishes.

Michael Putnam

Women’s Volleyball

Andre Begemann

For most of its history, the Pepperdine women’s volleyball program has boasted one of the nation’s top coaches in Nina Matthies, who took over in 1983. Since the West Coast Conference added women’s volleyball, the Waves have been the league’s dominant program with 10 titles. Since 1981, the Waves have made 20 trips to the NCAA Championships, including 11 in the last 12 years.

Men’s Tennis

No team has been more consistent then Pepperdine’s men’s tennis program, which wins the West Coast Conference title and makes the NCAA Tournament with amazing regularity. The Waves have won 40 WCC titles, including 19 in a row. Led by head coach Adam Steinberg, the Waves reached the pinnacle in 2006 and won the national championship.

Jesse Smith

Men’s Water Polo

Pepperdine was the host site of the 1984 Olympic water polo competition, so it should be no surprise that the Waves excel in the sport. Pepperdine has advanced to the NCAA Championships 12 times in its history and captured the national crown in 1997. Current coach Jack Kocur was a player on that title team. The Waves have won at least a share of conference titles nine times and have finished in the top 10 in the national rankings every year since 1976.

Katie Wilkins

Women’s Golf

In the last 16 seasons since Laurie Gibbs became head coach, the Pepperdine women’s golf program has developed into a national championship contender. The Waves have won 11 WCC titles, been to 11 straight NCAA Regional tournaments and have made nine NCAA Championships appearances. The Waves finished second in the nation in 2003 and boast four top-five finishes.

Katherine Hull

Sylvia Kosakowski

Women’s Tennis

No coach has been on staff at Pepperdine for more consecutive years than Gualberto Escudero, who took over as women’s tennis head coach in 1977-78. His tenure has featured WCC titles (21, including seven in a row), NCAA Tournament appearances (26, with 12 in a row) and top 25 finishes (including eight times in the nation’s top 10). Lindsay Adarme

Women’s Swimming & Diving

For more than 20 years, Pepperdine has thrived in the Pacific Collegiate Swimming & Diving Conference. The Waves have had nine consecutive topfive finishes under head coach Nick Rodionoff, including a program-best-tying secondplace finish in 2008. Ten of Pepperdine’s 20 record times have come under Rodionoff’s watch.

The fact that Pepperdine has won NCAA championships in five different men’s sports is a rare feat, as the Waves are one of only 14 schools to accomplish this. Making it even more noteworthy is that Pepperdine is the only non-BCS school and is by far the smallest. Following are the 14 schools with their enrollment figures. Arizona State (63,278) California (33,000) Indiana (38,247) Michigan (38,006) Michigan State (45,520) Minnesota (50,042) Ohio State (50,504) Oklahoma State (32,721) Penn State (42,294) Pepperdine (8,000) Stanford (14,890) UCLA (36,890) USC (33,000) Wisconsin (41,466) Additional national championships have been won by the now-defunct football squad (1947 small college), men’s tennis (1952 NAIA), Jerome Jones and Kelly Jones (1984 NCAA Tennis Doubles Tournament), Carlos DiLaura and Kelly Jones (1985 NCAA Tennis Doubles Tournament) and Robbie Weiss (1988 NCAA Tennis Singles Tournament).

COMMUNITY

Pepperdine University’s goal is to “strengthen lives for purpose, service and leadership” and the Pepperdine Athletics Department is a strong believer in helping its student-athletes to meet this goal. The school’s athletic teams embrace the concept of volunteerism and service to the community. Teams are regularly taking on projects that will better the lives of others. Step Forward is an annual day held each fall that is devoted to community service, when more than a thousand Pepperdine students, staff, faculty and alumni will disperse throughout Southern California in order to lend a hand to those in need. Pepperdine’s athletic teams have been front and center as part of this event, as well as other service opportunities year-round.

LIFE SKILLS/SAAC The Pepperdine University Athletics Department is committed to a program of life skills that provides educational experiences and services in order to develop well-balanced life styles for student-athletes; to encourage growth in decision making, planning and fulfillment of career and life goals; and to enhance the quality of the student-athlete experience within the university setting. The program is required for every incoming freshman and transfer student-athlete. Nationally recognized speakers and a life skills class are part of the program. Topics are chosen to support the following commitment purpose statements: • Commitment to Academic Excellence — To support the academic progress of the student-athlete toward intellectual development and graduation. • Commitment to Athletics Excellence — To build philosophical foundations for the development of athletics programs that are broad-based, equitable and dedicated to the well-being of the student athlete.

• Commitment to Personal Development — To support the development of a well-balanced lifestyle for studentathletes, encouraging emotional well-being, personal growth and decision making skills. • Commitment to Service — To engage the studentathlete in service to his/her campus and surrounding communities. • Commitment to Career Development — To encourage the student-athlete to develop and pursue career and life goals. The Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC) is comprised of two student leaders from each athletic team at Pepperdine. National SAACs at a glance: • Generate a student-athlete voice within the NCAA structure. • Solicit student-athlete response to proposed NCAA legislation. • Recommend potential NCAA legislation. • Review, react and comment to the governance structure on legislation, activities and subjects of interest. • Actively participate in the administrative process of athletics programs and the NCAA. • Promote a positive student-athlete image.

WCC

When the West Coast Conference first got its start back in 1952, the founders really had only one goal in mind — to create a convenient way for five Bay Area schools to play basketball. What has grown from that original vision some 57 years ago is a marvelously cohesive athletics league that is competitive at a national level in 13 sports. The eight current members of the WCC span the western coast of the United States from Canada to Mexico. Though the institutions range from the pine forests of Eastern Washington to the sun-drenched beaches of Southern California, the combined excellence in academics and athletics sets the conference apart on the national scene and draws the individual institutions together in a common mission. The WCC sponsors championships in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s golf, women’s rowing, men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s tennis and women’s volleyball. Originally chartered as the California Basketball Association, the five-team league included Pacific, Saint Mary’s, San Francisco, San Jose State and Santa Clara, and the firstever men’s basketball game was played January 2, 1953. After three seasons of play under that name, the conference expanded to include Loyola Marymount and Pepperdine in 1955, and became known as the West Coast Athletic Conference in 1956. The name was shortened in 1989. The current alignment of Gonzaga University, Loyola Marymount University, Pepperdine University, University of Portland, Saint Mary’s College, University of San Diego, University of San Francisco and Santa Clara University has remained unchanged since 1979, making the WCC the third-most stable athletic conference in the nation. Only the Ivy League and the Pacific-10 Conference have been together longer. Women’s sports were incorporated into the WCC prior to the 1985-86 season, and the league has made steady improvements in several sports, particularly basketball, soccer and volleyball. Since joining the WCC prior to the 1955-56 season, Pepperdine has claimed 129 WCC regular-season team championships in the following sports: baseball (17), men’s basketball (12), women’s basketball (4), men’s golf (16), women’s golf (11), women’s soccer (1), men’s tennis (40), women’s tennis (21) and women’s volleyball (10). Additionally, the men’s and women’s basketball team have each won the league’s postseason tournament three times. The baseball team has won the WCC Championship Series four times. The league relocated its headquarters in the summer of 1998 to San Bruno near the San Francisco International Airport. The WCC hired Jamie Zaninovich as its commissioner in March 2008.

MPSF

The Mountain Pacific Sports Federation was established during the 1992-93 academic year to serve the competitive needs of member institutions from the Big West, Pacific-10, Mountain West, Western Athletic and West Coast Conferences and other selected universities in the western United States; and to provide championship competition for Division I intercollegiate Olympic sports in a conference setting. The MPSF was originally formed to provide enhanced competition and championship opportunities for sports without conference affiliation; to contain the costs of competition; and to ensure the survival of sports impacted by Title IX and other fiscal pressures. The Federation has served as an incubator for emerging women’s sports and as a safe harbor for sports impacted by conference realignments. In men’s volleyball, the Waves have won five regular season and four tournament titles. Pepperdine competes against BYU, Cal State Northridge, Hawaii, Long Beach State, Pacific, Stanford, UC Irvine, UCLA, UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara and USC. MPSF schools have won 14 of the 17 NCAA men’s volleyball championships since the conference was created (including one by Pepperdine). In men’s water polo, the Waves have won two regular-season crowns. Pepperdine competes against California, Long Beach State, Pacific, Stanford, UC Irvine, UCLA, UC Santa Barbara and USC. MPSF schools have won all 17 NCAA men’s water polo championships since the conference was created (including one by Pepperdine).

PCSC

Pepperdine has been a member of the Pacific Collegiate Swimming & Diving Conference for more than 20 years. The PCSC has allowed a number of swimming programs of all shape and size — NCAA Division I, II and III and the NAIA — who are not affiliated with a major conference to come together and participate at a championship meet. The Waves swim against AlaskaFairbanks, Biola, California Baptist, Cal State East Bay, Chapman, Concordia, Fresno Pacific, Loyola Marymount, Northern Colorado, Seattle, Soka, UC San Diego and UC Santa Cruz.
