GAME NOTES: The Loyola Marymount Lions search for just their second win in 11 outings when they host the Pacific Tigers in a West Coast Conference showdown at Gersten Pavilion.

The Lions lost their third straight game on Thursday night, falling to Saint Mary's 77-58. The Gaels scored the first 14 points of the game and never looked back. LMU did fight to get back within 39-35 early in the second half, but an 11-4 surge by Saint Mary's put the game out of reach.

Evan Payne scored 17 points to lead the Lions, who have dropped nine of their last 10 games overall.

Senior Anthony Ireland, LMU's leading scorer, had 13 points to move into sole possession of fourth place on the Lions' all-time scoring list. He passed the legendary Bo Kimble (2,010) and now has 2,022 points.

Ireland averages 18.6 ppg, which is second best in the WCC. Payne added 14.6 ppg and Gabe Levin contributes 10.9 ppg and a team-best 7.5 rpg for LMU, which averages 74.8 ppg as a team.

Pacific comes into this contest off an 80-68 setback to Pepperdine on Thursday night. The Tigers led 4-2 in the early stages, but that was their only lead of the game. The Waves used a 14-2 run to take the lead for good and later extended to a 34-16 cushion with 4:07 left in the first half.

Pacific did manage to draw within 66-62 with four minutes left in the game only to see Pepperdine hit a majority of its free throws down the stretch to pull away.

Andrew Bock and T.J. Wallace each scored 15 points to lead the Tigers, who fell to 3-8 in conference play. Tony Gill added 12 points and Khalil Kelley tallied 10 points for Pacific, which has alternated wins and losses over its last four games after losing six of seven.

Bock leads the Tigers in scoring with 12.3 ppg, while Gill adds 11.3 ppg and a team-best 6.0 rpg as Pacific averages 75.3 ppg as a team.

The Tigers have a chance to wrap up a four-game road trip at .500 despite going just 3-6 on the road this season.

These two teams met back on January 23 with the Lions coming away with a 92-81 decision. The win was the only one in 2014 for Loyola Marymount, which could expect to come away with another victory in this one as long as Payne and Ireland are hitting on all cylinders.
