LIU has quite the challenge ahead of them as they’re expected to be blown off the court. They will head out on the road to face off against the UCLA Bruins at 10:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Pauley Pavilion. LIU might want some stickum for this game since the team gave up 15 turnovers on Monday.
LIU and Pepperdine couldn’t quite live up to the 160-over/under that the experts had forecasted. The Sharks were completely outmatched by the Waves on the road and fell 88-53. LIU was in a tough position after the first half, with the score already sitting at 39-18.
