The Loyola Marymount Lions (11-20, CONF 4-12) and San Francisco Dons (20-11, CONF 9-7) face off in a second round West Coast Conference showdown at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.

Loyola Marymount hasn’t had the best season, and over the last ten games they have only three wins, but one of those wins was in their last game. The Lions aren’t an elite offensive team averaging 64.6 points per game, but they are shooting 46.7 percent from the field.

On defense, Loyola Marymount’s defense is giving up 67.3 points per game and if they want any chance to win this game, they need the defense to be strong.

On Thursday, Loyola Marymount played San Diego and it was the offense that was elite averaging 75 points per game, while the defense gave up 61 points per game. The Lions were led by Keli Leaupepe who put up 23 points and ten rebounds in 36 minutes. 

The San Francisco Dons are playing well coming into this game having won three games in a row. Their last win was over the Lions 69-67 and this is a team that is really good at using a balanced attack. 

Against Loyola Marymount San Francisco had four players score in double figures. The leader of the crew for the Dons was Jordan Ratinho who put up 27 points. 

The one thing the Don can’t do is overlook Loyola Marymount in this game. If the Dons thing this is an easy win, they will be beaten in this game.

The under is 7-2 in San Francisco's last nine games a favorite. San Francisco is 3-8 against the spread in their last game. 

When these two teams faced off last time, San Francisco won by only two points, and this game should also be a real barn burner. Look for Loyola Marymount to keep it close enough to cover the spread, and don't be shocked if they win this game outright.
