Famine Relief: Waves Crashing for Pepperdine in West Coast

Pepperdine is runner-up to San Francisco for most all-league selections in West Coast Conference history. But the Waves have fallen on hard times and are the nation's only school not to have an all-conference choice in the last seven seasons.

Elsewhere, Rutgers might need to visit its archives and bring Dick Vitale back as a recruiter. The Scarlet Knights, failing to secure All-Big East Conference acclaim since Quincy Douby in 2005-06, have the longest all-league famine among members of power alliances. Following is an alphabetical list of schools enduring honor droughts having no all-league picks at least the past four seasons:

School Conference Last All-League Selection(s)
DePaul Big East Draelon Burns in 2007-08
Florida A&M Mid-Eastern Athletic Rome Sanders in 2006-07
Jacksonville State Ohio Valley Courtney Blake in 2006-07
Louisiana-Monroe Sun Belt Tony Hooper in 2006-07
Pepperdine West Coast Alex Acker and Glen McGowan in 2004-05
Rutgers Big East Quincy Douby in 2005-06
Sacramento State Big Sky Alex Bausley and DaShawn Freeman in 2005-06
Samford Ohio Valley Travis Peterson in 2007-08
Southern Illinois Missouri Valley Randal Falker and Bryan Mullins in 2007-08
