Saint Mary's Vs. Loyola Marymount: Gaels Look To Solidify WCC Lead

The Saint Mary's Gaels return to action Wednesday evening as they host the Loyola Marymount Lions. The Gaels are currently 12-1 in conference play and hold a one-game lead over the Gonzaga Bulldogs. LMU is looking to bounce back from a tough loss in Spokane to Gonzaga. The game marked LMU's first road loss in conference play and dropped them a half game back of the BYU Cougars for third place.

The Gaels face arguably their biggest week of the regular season as they host LMU and then travel to Murray State on Saturday. While neither game can give them a big boost in their NCAA tournament profile, a loss in either game could sting. The Gaels will look for continued strong efforts from Rob Jones and Matthew Dellavedova who have led the way for much of this season.

LMU is two games up on San Francisco for the fourth seed and the bonus bye week that comes with third and fourth place. San Francisco is hosting BYU, but upsets abound late in conference play, so anything is possible. Drew Viney and Anthony Ireland have been hot the last few games and will look to continue leading the Lions.
