PROVO, Utah – BYU basketball gets ready for a rare second straight game against the same opponent in the Pepperdine Waves. The Cougars have won their last four games, including a hard-fought win against Pepperdine this past Saturday in Provo.

Here are all the nitty-gritty details on how you can watch or listen to BYU (13-3, 3-1 WCC) host the Pepperdine Waves (6-7, 2-2 WCC) on Wednesday, January 27th, 2021.

This game is a rescheduled date after being postponed due to COVID-19 issues within the Pepperdine Waves program on December 31st.

BYU leads the all-time series against the Waves 17-7. The last meeting was on January 23rd, 2021. BYU won that game 65-54 at the Marriott Center last week in a game that saw the Cougars build up a 16-point lead, then have it cut down to three, and ultimately pull away late in the game.
