    No. 17 Wisconsin (2-0) at Pepperdine (3-1) 8:00 pm EST

    MALIBU, California (Ticker) -- Following four straight road games to start the season, Pepperdine opens its home schedule Saturday with its toughest test to date, a meeting with No. 17 Wisconsin.

    Pepperdine rebounded nicely from a season-opening loss to East Carolina by winning three straight, including an 82-78 victory at Long Beach State on Tuesday.

    After scoring just four points in Pepperdine's loss, Acker has averaged 18.3 points in the three wins, helping his club shoot 54 percent from the floor.

    The Badgers have held their first two opponents, Pennsylvania and Cal-Santa Barbara, to a total of 105 points. Coach Bo Ryan's club has overcome the departure of star guard Devin Harris, who is playing with the Dallas Mavericks.

    Clayton Hanson was the star in the 72-61 win over UCSB, hitting four 3-pointers and making 6-of-7 shots overall in the second half. Zach Morley also had four successful attempts from the arc and Alando Tucker added 16 points as Wisconsin shot 56 percent (27-of-48) from the floor.

    The schools have split a pair of past meetings with the home team victorious in each game.
