Loyola Marymount if coming off a win, but they are still 4 games under .500 and earlier this season they lost by 12 points at home to St. Mary’s.
If it were not for Gonzaga, St. Mary’s would be undefeated in WCC play. Both of their losses this season in conference have come facing them including their last game.
Because of that it is unlikely they will catch them in the WCC race unless the Zags fall apart.
In their last games St. Mary’s lost to Gonzaga 74-64 and Loyola Marymount beat Portland 66-60.
Loyola Marymount Lions
Loyola Marymount only ranks 233rd in the nation in points per game and 150th in points allowed.
LMU beat Portland in their last game and the main reason was that they forced a whopping 30 turnovers.
In the game they only shot 37.9% from the floor while allowing Portland to shoot 43.2%, but they got so many chances to score off turnovers.
In the Portland win Buay Tuach and Brandon Brown each went for 18 points and were the only players that went for double figures.
These are the top 2 scorers for the season combining to average just over 25 ppg and if the Gaels can keep them in check they should easily win this game.
LMU is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games facing St. Mary’s.
This season LMU is 4-6 on the road.
St. Mary’s Gaels
St. Mary’s only ranks 228th in the nation in points per game, but 2nd in points allowed.
In their loss to Gonzaga, St. Mary’s struggled on both ends of the floor only shooting 40.7% from the field and allowing Gonzaga to shoot 55.3%.
St. Mary’s shot better from deep in the Gonzaga game and had more offensive boards and these are the reasons the game was not a big blowout.
Jock Lindale went for 24 points in the loss to the Zags and he was the only player that scored in double figures.
He leads the team in scoring and rebounding and even though Calvin Hermanson is the only other player averaging in double figures St. Mary’s is pretty deep even though the other players did not get it done on the Gonzaga loss.
In the early conference season game between St. Mary’s and LMU the Gaels shot 57.5% from the floor while the Lions only shot 35.6%.
St. Mary’s is 13-2 at home this season.
