This Saturday will be a special day on the Pepperdine campus. Several former Pepperdine basketball players will be returning to campus. The game is expected to start at 7 pm.

The former student-athletes will be returning to see former head coach Gary Colson to be honored at halftime of the Waves game against San Francisco. The basketball players have organized this event for their former head coach. It will also include a private pre-game event and a post-game get-together at Cafe Habana in Malibu.

Colson coached the Waves for 11 seasons from the 1969 to 1979 season and had an overall record of 153-137. He was influential in helping the school move to its current location from South-Central Los Angeles. The Waves won only one West Coast Conference Championship under Colson in 1976.

But Colson guided the Waves to the NCAA Tournament in 1976 and 1979. The Waves won first-round games in both years. Pepperdine defeated Memphis in 1976, then went on to defeat Utah in 1979. However, they lost to UCLA both times in the second round.
