San Francisco faces Loyola Marymount on Friday, March 5th at the Orleans Arena for an NCAA basketball WCC 2nd-Round matchup. 

San Francisco had to go through San Diego in the first round of the WCC Tournament on Thursday night. San Francisco took down the Toreros by the final score of 67-51 in that game, as it was a very comfortable victory for the Dons. San Francisco is notable for defeating the #4 ranked Virginia Cavaliers at the time in nonconference play. San Francisco has an 11-13 record and has lost to Loyola Marymount twice this season. San Francisco's leading scorer so far this season has been G Jamaree Bouyea, who has scored 17.5 points per game for the Dons. San Francisco as a team has scored 71.9 points per game and has earned 33.7 rebounds and 11.8 assists per game. San Francisco has also allowed 70.0 points per game to its opponents as well. 

Loyola Marymount ended its regular season with an 86-69 loss to Gonzaga on the road on February 27th. Loyola Marymount lost two of its last three to end the regular season, but the Lions could be a very dangerous outsider in this WCC Tournament. Loyola Marymount, as mentioned before, beat San Francisco twice this season. Loyola Marymount ended the regular season with a 12-8 overall record. Loyola Marymount's leading scorer so far this season has been G Eli Scott, who has scored 17.7 points per game for the Lions this season.

The line has not yet been released, so be sure to check back soon for updates regarding the odds. I like Loyola Marymount to beat this San Francisco team for the third time this season and advance to the next round in the tournament. Loyola Marymount has the size advantage and should be able to control the paint offensively. 

UPDATE: San Francisco opens as a 1-point favorite and the total is set at 139. I am a bit surprised to see San Fran as the favorite here, but nonetheless, I will take Loyola Marymount and the point here.
