Recap: Loyola Marymount vs. San Francisco

Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Avry Holmes posted a game-high 25 points, leading four players in double figures, as the San Francisco Dons pulled out a 65-61 win over the Loyola Marymount Lions in West Coast Conference action at Gersten Pavilion.

Cole Dickerson responded with 14 points and eight rebounds for the Dons (20-10, 13-5 WCC), followed by Kruize Pinkins with 12 points and 11 boards, his efforts on the glass matched by Matt Glover, while Tim Derksen tacked on 10 points off the bench for a team that closed out the regular season with a fifth straight win.

The Lions (12-18, 4-14),losers of eight of the last nine on the schedule, were paced by CJ Blackwell, Evan Payne and Anthony Ireland with 13 points apiece, followed by Nick Stover with 10 points before fouling out. Loyola, which played a mere six players in the outing, also picked up eight points and 10 rebounds from Alex Osborne.

USF scored the first points of the night and never looked back, the team using 48.3 percent shooting from the field in the first half to establish a 35-27 advantage at the break. The Lions didn't do themselves any favors by shooting just 1-of-5 at the free-throw line and 2-of-11 on the perimeter.

In the second half LMU shot much better all around, but still the deficit was too great and the team ended up on the wrong side of the four-point decision.

Outscored by an 11-7 margin at the charity stripe, the Lions were crushed on the glass as well, 42-27.
