Freshman Jalin Anderson hit a short baseline jumper as time expired and Loyola Marymount gave new coach Stan Johnson a first win to remember, edging Southern Utah 85-83 in the season opener on Wednesday night.
After John Knight III tied the game with a three-point play with 17.8 seconds remaining, Eli Scott, drove inside the circle before shoveling the ball off to Anderson, who drove from the right corner and pulled up for the winner from about 12 feet.
Johnson draped a towel over his shoulder to honor the late John Thompson.
