The Loyola Marymount Lions look to continue their West Coast Conference road success Thursday night as they travel to Provo, Utah to face the BYU Cougars. The Lions have opened their conference season 3-2, with all three wins coming on the road. Loyola Marymount is 5-2 on the road so far this season.
With three road wins and a 3-2 record, deductive reasoning means the Lions have lost two games at home. One of those losses came at the hands of BYU, who won at Gersten Pavilion 73-65 on January 5. Here are the relevant details of Thursday's night's WCC contest:
