Gonzaga (15-2, 4-0 WCC) has not played in a full week, and they’re coming off a 78-62 home win over the San Francisco Dons as Drew Timme scored 23 points and Chet Holmgren added 22 points and nine rebounds. The Bulldogs will enter Thursday night’s matchup as the top-rated team in KenPom overall.
Loyola Marymount (9-8, 2-3 WCC) won two in a row before getting blown out by the Saint Mary’s Gaels by 32 points on Saturday. The Lions rate outside the top 150 overall in KenPom, and their top scorer is Eli Scott, who is averaging 16.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.4 assists - all of which are team highs.
