Loyola Marymount 77, Portland 68

Vernon Teel scored 24 points and pulled down 11 rebounds to lead

Loyola Marymount to a 77-68 overtime win against Portland on

Saturday.

Teel scored just eight points in Thursday’s upset over Gonzaga

but bounced back Saturday by hitting 6 of 9 shots from the field

and going 10-for-12 from the free-throw line.

The Lions (15-13, 6-6 WCC) have now won four of their past five

games.

The Pilots (17-9, 8-4) took the lead 62-60 on a pair of free

throws by T.J. Campbell with just 30 seconds left in regular

play.

But the Lions’ Larry Davis nailed a jumper with six seconds left

to send the game into overtime.

From there, the Lions outscored their opponents 15-4. LMU’s

Ashley Hamilton finished with 12 points while Davis and Jarred

DuBois each scored 10.

Campbell led the Pilots with 17 points. Jared Stohl finished

with 16 and Ethan Niedermeyer had 11.
