What to Know
The Pepperdine Waves and the Loyola Marymount Lions will face off in a West Coast clash at 11 p.m. ET Jan. 28 at Albert Gersten Pavilion. Loyola Marymount will be strutting in after a victory while the Waves will be stumbling in from a loss.
Pepperdine came up short against the San Diego Toreros on Thursday, falling 87-78. One thing holding Pepperdine back was the mediocre play of guard Houston Mallette, who did not have his best game: he finished with only eight points on 2-for-15 shooting in his 32 minutes on the court.
Meanwhile, the Portland Pilots typically have all the answers at home, but on Thursday Loyola Marymount proved too difficult a challenge. Loyola Marymount enjoyed a cozy 79-60 win over the Pilots. The Lions got double-digit scores from four players: guard Cam Shelton (20), guard Jalin Anderson (13), forward Keli Leaupepe (11), and guard Lamaj Lewis (10).
The Waves are the clear underdogs, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past three games, so buyers beware.
Pepperdine was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap when the two teams previously met in January of last year as they fell 85-80 to Loyola Marymount. Can Pepperdine avenge their defeat, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
