LMU Lions Men’s Basketball 2022-23 Season Tracker

Tracking Results, Rankings & Stats for LMU Lions & Season Opponents

The 2022-23 LMU Lions Men’s Basketball season is well underway with LMU having some big wins so far over high-conference opponents. Going into this season I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this LMU squad. We had a few transfers, out-of high school players, and some solid returners, but last year was a big let down season. Now that we have had some early season success, my interest in LMU basketball has been renewed, as I’m sure it has been with other Lions fans.

So I wanted to help fans stay informed throughout the season by compiling useful resources in an easy accessible spot, my blog. My LMU season tracker will gather data from around the web to curate into one bookmarkable post.

I’ll update this blog with info like season record, opponents record, team stats, college rankings (LMU & our opponents), news, and useful links. I’ll also provide my pregame thoughts as well as give some after game commentary. It will be a work in progress as the season goes along. I hope LMU fans will find the information here useful and will stop by to see the latest. GO LIONS!

LMU vs. Nevada Wolf Pack (December 3, 2022)

LMU Lions

Nevada Wolf Pack

LMU’s defensive second half effort proved to be the deciding factor in this victory. The Lions won because of second chance points and forcing tough shots by Nevada in the second half. It was not a great second half based on offensive points, shooting just 16.67% from three and 62.50% from the free throw line, but they managed to hold the Wolf Pack to just 13.64% from the field. Issanza had some great block shots, Leaupepe just out hustles everyone, and Cam Shelton is proving to be the leader of this team with great confidence. Both teams scored well below their season averages, but the Lions proved to be the better team in this game.

Result: Win 64-52 | Watch Game | Links: Box ScoreRecapNevada Website

The Nevada Wolf Pack may not have K.J. Hymes (Senior, Forward) available who averages 9 ppg and shoots 66.7% from the field. The lone loss of the season for Nevada was to Kansas State in an OT game at the Cayman Islands Classic. The Lions will need Issanza to step up against their bigs, Ahrens will need to hit some three’s, and Shelton & Leaupepe to play consistent like they’ve done all season. The Wolf Pack come to Gersten as a 3 point favorite, so this game is expected to be close.

LMU vs. Bellarmine Knights (November 25, 2022)

Bellarmine Knights

LMU needed the first half to get warmed up as they cruised to their sixth win of the season with a strong second half performance. The Lions had 34 points from the bench, plus only 9 turnovers the entire game, which proved to be the deciding factors in the game. The Lions defense held the Bellarmine leading scorer, Peter Suder, to only 9 points. Not too much stood out in this game for me besides limited turnovers, which has been a problem for the Lions in recent years. Overall solid performance.

Result: Win 80-59 | Links: Box ScoreRecapBellarmine Website

Pregame Thoughts: This is the second year in a year the Lions will be facing the Knights, this time at Gersten. According to the oddsmakers the Lions are favored by 7 points; however, the Lions should face a tough test against the Knights. Their early season schedule had them playing three ACC teams including Louisville (67-66 win), Clemson (66-76 loss) and most recently Duke (57-74 loss). Bellarmine is led by Peter Suder freshmen guard who has a 47.3% field goal percentage. He will have a size advantage over Cam Shelton. The Knights look to play a slower style and look for their shots, while LMU is a higher volume shooting team. The pace of play may determine the result of this game.

LMU vs. Morgan State University (November 23, 2022)

Morgan State Bears

The Lions played the classic letdown game after a thrilling OT win over Wake Forest. Both seniors, Shelton and Leaupepe, stepped up big for the Lions in the second half finishing with 26 points & 29 points, respectively. Ahrens and Graham had disappointing performances. Issanza showed some good post up moves, although the Lions just need to lob a few more around the rim for him. I said in my pregame thoughts that three’s would be a factor and Morgan State finished the game at 50% from long range. The full court pressure in the first half by Morgan State was effective against LMU. They continued their pressure late in the game causing fits for LMU players. Hope the coach will work on this as this definitely is something future opponents will certainly exploit. Glad the Lions got the W! Enjoy your Thanksgiving LMU fans!

Result: Win (OT) 81-80 | Watch Game | Links: Box ScoreRecapMSU Website

Pregame Thoughts: Morgan State is a veteran guard heavy team with Malik Miller and Isaiah Burke leading the way offensively. Both played when LMU last played MSU back in 2019. I don’t see any match-up issues size-wise as long as Issanza can stay out of foul trouble. Although MSU is more efficient at shooting 3’s (37% vs. 35%), LMU is a much more high volume shooting team from 3, so could be an advantage if our 3pt % remains high. LMU is 2-3 historically against Morgan State. LMU at home will no doubt be the favorite to win this matchup.

LMU vs. Wake Forest University (November 20, 2022)

Wake Forest Demon Deacons

LMU came out strong in the first half shooting the 3 ball well. With a bit of a letup in the second half, LMU trailed by 8 late in the game. LMU’s defensive stops and a missed free throw by Matthew Marsh, allowed Cam Shelton’s 3 pointer to send the game to overtime. Both teams battled in OT as the point differential never breached more than 2 points. Chance Stephens helped the Lions take the lead late, which they never gave up. Wake Forest’s guard, Tyree Appleby, and LMU’s guard, Chance Stephens, lead both of their respective teams in points. This was the second time LMU won the Jamaica Classic, so I would expect an invitation back in future seasons.

Georgetown ended their 2021-22 season with a streak no team wishes for — 22 losses in a row. Fortunately for them, they were able to end that streak winning their first game of this season. The good news for Lions fans is that Georgetown is still a mediocre big conference team. LMU went on an unbelievable second half run to give the Lions a double digit victory. Ohio State transfer, Justin Ahrens, showed his shooters touch from downtown going 4 for 7 from the arc. He was bested by the Leaupepe who went 75% from three. Everyone from LMU made good contributions to get this win.

I don’t have a lot of thoughts on this game as I was unable to watch the game live (ESPN+ login issues). Anyway, this was the classic ‘you live by the 3 and die by the 3’ type of game. LMU shot a measly 14.3% from the arc.

UC Davis’ Elijah Pepper is all that kept them in the game against LMU. The Lions never built a big enough lead to make me comfortable throughout the second half, but they did what they needed to win this one. Cam Shelton impressed with 40% from the field and a team high 24 points. Keli Leaupepe once again proved he can be a consistent leader this season recording a double-double with 16 points and 12 rebs.

My personal blog covers topics that interest me including web design & development, WordPress, sports (Cubs, Bears, Lakers, LMU Lions, VGK, golf), recipes, finance, photography, and so much more.

In addition to my personal blog, you can also find some of my work over at Frugal Buzz and Deals by Robert, both are online shopping deals websites I've founded over the last few years.
