The duo also shares the team lead with 33 steals apiece, helping the Lions pace the WCC in turnovers forced at 15.1 per game. Junior guard Steven Haney (8.8 points), senior center Stefan Jovanovic (8.6 points, team-high 5.0 rebounds) and senior forward Shamar Johnson (7.8 points, 4.7 rebounds) add scoring depth.

ABOUT SAINT MARY’S (22-3, 12-2): Junior center Jock Landale averages team bests of 17 points and 9.4 rebounds after recording 24 and eight versus Gonzaga. Junior forward Calvin Hermanson (12.6 points) was held to seven points Saturday while senior guard Joe Rahon (8.8 points, club-high 5.8 assists, 4.0 rebounds) recorded nine points, eight rebounds, six assists and two steals versus Gonzaga. Junior guard Emmett Naar (9.9 points, 5.4 assists), who scored a season-high 19 points in the first meeting with Loyola Marymount, is fourth on the school’s career assist list with 477 and needs 31 to move into second.

Bovada Sportsbook currently has the Gaels listed as 15½-point favorites versus the Lions, while the game’s total is sitting at 130½ according to GTBETS.

Saint Mary’s-California lost its last outing, a 74-64 result against Bulldogs on February 11. They failed to cover in that game as a +4-point underdog.

Loyola Marymount was a 66-60 winner in their most recent outing at home against Pilots. They failed to cover the -9.5-point spread as favorites.

After missing an opportunity to all but assure itself a spot in the NCAA Tournament, No. 21 Saint Mary’s returns to the mundane portion of its West Coast Conference schedule when it hosts Loyola Marymount on Thursday. The Gaels lost to No. 1 Gonzaga 74-64 on Saturday – their second setback to the Bulldogs this season, losing all realistic chance of winning the WCC regular-season title and facing perhaps a must-win situation in the conference tournament in order to make the Big Dance.

Saint Mary’s failed to make the 2016 NCAA Tournament despite a 27-5 record and two victories over Gonzaga as its fate was cemented by losing to the Bulldogs in the WCC tournament championship. The Gaels have four regular-season games remaining against teams they’ve already beaten by a combined 58 points this season – and with more of the same expected in the early rounds of the conference tourney, they should get another shot at Gonzaga in the final March 7. “It all depends how we finish,” Saint Mary’s coach Randy Bennett told reporters. “There’s a body of work there. It sounds crazy, but it’s too early to tell. It’s such a fine line at this level.” The Lions, who lost the first meeting this season to the Gaels 72-60 on Dec. 29, defeated Portland 66-60 on Saturday to snap a two-game slide.
