March 8, 2006

Malibu, Calif. - The Pepperdine men's golf team was named Golweek's "Team of the Week" by Golfweek following an impressive victory at the Ashworth Collegiate Invitational on February 28. The Waves recorded a nine-shot win over host USC at North Ranch Country Club in nearby Westlake Village.

The victory came against a 15-team field that included six teams who were ranked in the Top 25 and moved Pepperdine to No. 18 in the latest Golfweek rankings.

The Waves were led by freshman Adam Porzak, who tied for third with a 1-under par score of 212. Senior Alex Coe and junior J.J. Wood tied for 10th with 3-over par totals of 216.

Pepperdine returns to action on Sunday when it opens play at the 16-team General Jim Hackler Invitational at the TPC of Myrtle Beach in Murrells, Inlet, South Carolina.
