The Lions (5-4) are coming off their second road of win of the year, moving back above .500 after never-trailing at CSUN last week.
Washington (7-3) started the season at 2-2, but rattled off five-consecutive wins capped by a signature performance against No. 2-ranked Kansas in Kansas City. The last time out, the Huskies fell 97-70 to in-state opponent and West Coast Conference team No. 12-ranked Gonzaga.
The Huskies get to the basket and are 24th in the nation in free throw attempts and 26th in Division 1 in free throws made.
UW’s other strength are their 8.6 steals per game (31st in the country). Matisse Thybulle’s 34 steals is third in the nation and just four steals behind the NCAA leader, Jevon Carter of West Virginia.
LMU’s strength this year continues to be on the glass. The Lions rank 7th in Division I in offensive rebounds per game with 14.78 (through games 12/14/17). LMU ranks second among WCC schools with 7.6 rebounds per game.
