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:
