I’m sticking with Loyola Marymount here. I get BYU being favored at home but Loyola Marymount I feel is the better team playing better basketball coming into this game and BYU had no answers for the Lions in the first meeting and I don’t know if they will here either, even at home. Give me Loyola Marymount and the points here.
