What to Know

The Loyola Marymount Lions have the luxury of staying home another game and will welcome the Bellarmine Knights at 3 p.m. ET Nov. 25 at Albert Gersten Pavilion. Loyola Marymount will be strutting in after a victory while Bellarmine will be stumbling in from a loss.

The Lions have more to be thankful for after their contest against the Morgan State Bears on Wednesday. Loyola Marymount escaped with a win by the margin of a single free throw, 81-80. Their forward Keli Leaupepe did his thing and posted a double-double on 29 points and 11 rebounds.

As for Bellarmine, it looks like they got the smaller half of the wishbone at Thanksgiving dinner. They took a hard 74-57 fall against the Duke Blue Devils on Monday. One thing holding Bellarmine back was the mediocre play of guard Garrett Tipton, who did not have his best game: he played for 30 minutes but put up just eight points on 3-for-10 shooting.

The Lions are the favorite in this one, with an expected 7-point margin of victory. Those burned by picking them against the spread on Wednesday might want to keep in mind that the squad has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.

Loyola Marymount's win brought them up to 5-2 while the Knights' defeat pulled them down to 2-3. Loyola Marymount is 2-2 after wins this year, and Bellarmine is 1-1 after losses.
