Both teams are playing well as of late and that will continue here. Loyola has the much better defense and that will slow the pace down. Oregon State is playing the best basketball of the year and everything seems to be clicking. Look for a back and forth game that stays close through out as this will be a 40 minute defensive battle. Final Score Prediction, Loyola wins but doesn't cover ATS 72-69.
