Loyola Marymount
Don't know a heck of a lot about Loyola Marymount at this point in time. I know that years ago they were a formidable program. They are 1-1, having lost at home to Tenn-Chat 75-64 and beat Arizona Christian 74-67. Arizona Christian is an NAIA school. But they are probably better than who we played, the last 2 games, since they went into the LMU game 5-0. On the other hand, I certainly never heard of any of the teams they beat.

RE: Loyola Marymount
Just found this which is a little scary-

Loyola Marymount Lions
LMU vastly exceeded expectations last season in Stan Johnson’s first year as a head coach. The Lions finished 94th in KenPom, up from a preseason ranking of 146. It was the school’s first top-100 KenPom finish in the site’s 25-year history.

Now, the Lions have real expectations. They return five starters and add the services of four transfers who could all play a role in the rotation.

Johnson’s team is deep, athletic, physical and led by one of the best players in the WCC in Eli Scott.

Approach LMU as you would USF. Believe the hype is possible, but get a few games for sample size before making a conclusion.

With their slow style of play, preference for rim attack over 3-pointers and uber-physical nature, the Lions project to be a fantastic underdog but a so-so favorite.

They have the size and physicality to compete with power conference teams, but they won’t consistently cover as a mid-to-large favorite.

I believe they were picked 5th in the WCC, but 3 of the teams ahead of them are regular postseason participants- Gonzaga, St. Mary's, and BYU. This will be a very tough road test. A win in LA and my expectations for the season will certainly go up dramatically.
