We have some non-conference college basketball action on Saturday afternoon, as the Loyola Marymount Lions take on the Oregon State Beavers.

The Loyola Marymount Lions will look to build some momentum after winning 4 of their last 5 games, including an 87-66 win over subdivision CSU-Los Angeles in their last outing.

Mattias Markusson added 14 points and a team-high 8 rebounds, while Steven Haney added 3 triples and 11 points to round out the scoring in double figures for LMU in the win. James Batemon chipped in 7 points to match his 7 rebounds and a game-high 12 assists, 2 dimes shy of CSULA’s assists as a team in the game. Batemon leads the team with an average of 14.8 points and 5 assists per game while Scott is the team’s top rebounder with 7.3 boards per game this season. As a team, Loyola Marymount is scoring 79 points per game on 45.1% shooting from the field, 28.5% from behind the arc and 73.6% from the foul line this season.

The Oregon State Beavers will try to climb back above .500 after climbing to 3-3 on the year thanks to a 65-46 win over Marist in their last outing. Tres Tinkle led the team with 16 points on 6 of 14 shooting with 3 threes, 7 rebounds and 3 assists, while Alfred Hollins and Drew Eubanks each added 12 points to round out the double-digit scoring for the Beavers in the win. Eubanks went 5 of 6 from the field with 6 rebounds, while Hollins went 3 for 4 with a 5 for 6 mark from the foul line along with 8 rebounds in just 10 minutes on the floor. Ethan Thompson added 7 points along with a team-high 9 rebounds, 4 assists and a pair of blocks for Oregon State in the win. Tinkle leads the Beavers with an average of 18.2 points and 8 rebounds per game while Jaquori McLaughlin is the team’s leading assist man with 3.7 assists per game this season. As a team, Oregon State is scoring 77.5 points per game on 46.3% shooting from the field, 27% from behind the arc and 74.8% from the foul line this season.

Loyola Marymount is 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 non-conference games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games against the Pac-12 while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 non-conference games. Oregon State is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 5-13 ATS in their last 18 non-conference games while the over is 16-7 in their last 23 home games against a team with a losing road record.

Loyola Marymount has only lost one of their 6 games this season by double-digits and their other loss was by only 5 against a very good Utah team. Oregon State isn’t the easiest of places to go on the road and win, but I think this is too many points for a Loyola Marymount team that can hang with the Beavers. I’ll gladly take the points in this spot as I think the Lions have a chance to pull off the upset here.
