For the first time this season, the Lions had two players with double-doubles, as both James Batemon (13 points, 10 assists) and Mattias Markusson (16 points, 10 rebounds) hit the mark. The 10 combined double-doubles this season (five by Eli Scott, four by Markusson, and one by Batemon) are the most in the program since the 10 in 2012-13. Batemon’s was the first to reach the mark with a combination of points and assists.

The other big note from Saturday’s PCH Cup win was the game that Steven Haney, Jr. put together. The senior captain knocked down six threes for a career-high 31 points and finished a perfect 9-for-9 from the free throw line. He now is just one of three LMU players to surpass the 200 made threes plateau (joining Jeff Fryer and Terrell Lowery). Haney, who transferred in after his freshman season, is now the program record holder for made threes in a three-year career.

LMU has won two of three at home in the month of February, but are still looking for that first win away from Gersten Pavilion since conference play began. The last two outings away from the Bluff resulted in losses totaling just three points between the two games.

The game in Spokane will tip at 6 p.m. and will air on TheW.tv in Los Angeles and KHQ-TV, ROOT NW, and NBCS BA in other local WCC markets.
