What to Know
The Loyola Marymount Lions are 0-12 against the Saint Mary's Gaels since January of 2016, but they'll have a chance to close the gap a little bit this past Saturday. The Lions will stay at home another game and welcome Saint Mary's at 10 p.m. ET Jan. 22 at Albert Gersten Pavilion. Both teams looked pretty sloppy on the offensive side of the ball the last time they faced off, scoring just 99 points combined.
Even if it wasn't a dominant performance, Loyola Marymount beat the Pepperdine Waves 85-80 this past Thursday. Loyola Marymount's guard Eli Scott was one of the most active players for the team, posting a double-double on 31 points and ten boards.
Meanwhile, Saint Mary's beat the Santa Clara Broncos 73-65 this past Thursday. Saint Mary's' success was spearheaded by the efforts of guard Alex Ducas, who had 17 points, and forward Matthias Tass, who dropped a double-double on 13 points and ten rebounds. That makes it three consecutive games in which Tass has had at least ten rebounds.
Loyola Marymount is expected to lose this next one by 7. Their home court has been no bettor's paradise, as they've failed to beat the spread in five of their eight home games.
The Lions are now 9-7 while the Gaels sit at 14-4. Loyola Marymount is 4-4 after wins this season, Saint Mary's 9-4.
