MALIBU, Calif. -- Colbey Ross scored seven of his 31 points in the final minutes as Pepperdine surged past Portland State, 77-71 on Tuesday night.
The win snapped a three-game losing streak to the Vikings.
Ross hit a 3 with 3:10 left to put Pepperdine (6-6) in front for good, then hit a pair of jumpers in the final 1:13 to seal the win.
