SANTA CLARA (AP) ― Marc Trasolini scored 21 points and Evan Roquemore made four free throws in the final 40 seconds to help Santa Clara hold off Pepperdine 71-68 on Saturday night.

Kevin Foster added 16 points and five assists despite an off night shooting as the Broncos completed their first sweep of the Waves since 1984.
