Yetna leads The American with 13 double-doubles and 9.6 rebounds per game and was selected as the AAC Freshman of the Year earlier this month.

Sophomore guard David Collins (Youngstown, Ohio) added 17 points and five steals against Utah Valley and is averaging 19.6 points, 4.6 assists and 3.0 steals per game over the last five games. Overall, Collins paces the USF offense with 15.8 points per game and opened the CBI with a career-high 31 points and seven steals March 20 in a victory over Stony Brook.

Rideau leads The American with 2.9 steals per game and his 90 steals are the most in a single season in conference history. He also leads the league with 5.5 assists per game and is attempting to become the first player in AAC history to lead the conference in assists and steals. THE OPPONENT Loyola Marymount (22-11, 8-8) finished in fifth place in the West Coast Conference and was upset in the first round of its league tournament by Pepperdine. The Lions proved to be one of the top defensive teams in the NCAA this season and ranked first in the WCC in scoring defense by holding opponents to 62.7 points per game. Loyola Marymount also stood second in the conference with 7.4 steals per game. Senior guard James Batemon leads the Lions with 16.6 points, 3.6 assists and 1.6 steals per game and was named to the All-WCC First Team. Junior center Mattias Markusson adds 10.3 points and a team-high 6.3 rebounds per game and was named All-WCC Honorable Mention at the end of the regular season. QUOTABLE Head coach Brian Gregory on the matchup with Loyola Marymount: "Loyola Marymount actually played in the Jamaica Classic with us and they actually won it. They were the only team that won every game. They beat Georgetown when they played them and then beat Ohio in the second game. They play in a tough conference and have been playing extremely well, so it's a great challenge for us, but a great opportunity for us to continue to grow and keep practicing and playing. Bateman is a tough, physical guard that is an all-league player for them, and Markusson inside is an imposing force both defensively and offensively. This is a team that is well-coached and knows how to play, so it's going to be a big test for us."
