Loyola Marymount came out against San Diego like a team that could do no wrong. Then came the second half--and a Torero team that could do no wrong. San Diego rallied from a 14-point first-half deficit and ran away from the Lions for a 75-51 victory Saturday night in a first-round West Coast Conference tournament game. The Toreros (14-13) will play Portland (17-10), a 78-72 winner over San Francisco, in tonight's second semifinal game. The Lions (18-11) will go home wondering what hit them.

It figured to be merely a midweek tuneup for this weekend's conference matchups, but Loyola Marymount on Tuesday night instead found itself in a hard-fought battle against Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, before pulling away down the stretch for a 76-64 nonconference victory. Apparently, the Mustangs were intent on keeping their road winning streak alive. Granted, that streak was only one before they came to play before 1,528 at Gersten Pavilion.
