Loyola Marymount (10-10, 2-6) will take a brutal six-game losing streak up north to Stockton, Calif. with hopes of turning their luck around against the Pacific Tigers (10-7, 1-5).
Pacific is fresh off a close loss to third place Saint Mary’s, where the Gaels went on considerable run in the second half to beat the Tigers by six points.
As for the Lions, home-court advantage did not do the Lions any favors last week. LMU dropped both of its games, to Portland on Thursday and Gonzaga on Saturday.
The Lions have had a great deal of issues with players being inactive, and it only continues. Today, the Loyola Marymount men’s basketball program announced that Ben Dickinson would be out indefinitely due to personal reasons. Three other Lions – Godwin Ok0nji, Ayodeji Egbeyemi, and Chase Flint – have been declared out for the season with injuries, and freshman guard Nino Jackson will likely join them and seek a medical redshirt (according to La Loyolan reporter Kevin Cacabelos).
LMU will have to push through the injuries and face a Pacific Tiger team that is hungry to get their second conference victory of the season and emerge from the depths of the conference standings.
