The Lions are coming off playing then-19th ranked, and now 15th-ranked, Gonzaga tough. LMU went off for eight first-half threes, including 5-for-7 from Senior Steven Haney, Jr., and trailed by just five points at the break.
Haney’s five threes in the game jumped him into a tie for fifth all-time in program history with 174 made long balls over his three-year LMU career. He and Johnathan Williams each had a game-high 18 points in the first 20 minutes.
Haney has led LMU in scoring in each of the last two games and has averaged over 18.6 points per game over his last three conference matches.
San Francisco comes to the Bluff after a double-digit win at Pepperdine Saturday. The Dons like the long ball as well, ranking in the top 25 in the nation and leading the West Coast Conference with 448 three-point attempts. However, the team is at the bottom of the WCC standings in scoring offense and field goal percentage, averaging just 69.6 points per game and shooting at a mark of 40.9 percent.
The Lions still rank atop the WCC in two statistical categories. LMU’s 14.67 turnovers forced per game and 13.67 offensive rebounds per game are both a league-best.
