LOS ANGELES – With the completion of Tuesday’s inaugural practice, the 2017-18 season is officially underway. The first of many practices this season for the Lions took place exactly one month before LMU hits the court for their exhibition opener on Nov. 3 at 7 p.m. at Gersten Pavilion. 

“All we ask is attitude and effort is full on, and they were tremendous,” said Head Coach Mike Dunlap. “We want to make sure that we are getting our defensive and offensive schemes in, and that went well for our first day.”

The Lions will have a new look this season as seven new players join the five returning letterwinners from the 2016-17 campaign.



“The returners can teach the new guys what to learn, but we all have a lot of new things to pick up to be ready for the season,” said junior guard Jeffery McClendon.
