"We played very sloppy" said Olive. "We had a definite lack of focus for whatever reason tonight."
The loss made only a minor impact on the conference race, as the Lions (17-9, 7-6) still can finish third with a win over San Francisco San Francisco (săn frănsĭs`kō), city (1990 pop. 723,959), coextensive with San Francisco co., W Calif., on the tip of a peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay, which are connected by the strait known as the Golden tonight. With a loss tonight, they could be in fourth or fifth place, but they still would face Portland in the first round of the conference tournament.

LMU Location Measurement Unit led 50-46 with 7:16 to play, but didn't score for the next 4:13 as USD went on an 11-0 run and took a 57-50 lead. Each possession for LMU in that run was its own little nightmare: a missed 3-point try, a 3-second-in-the-lane violation, a really bad 12-foot shot by Kenny Hottop, Ime Oduok stepping out of bounds on the baseline and Mike O'Quinn casually letting the shot clock run down before forcing a 3-pointer.
But USD let LMU close to 59-58 with 35.5 seconds to play before Jacobsen went to work. He hit two free throws to make it 61-58 and then after getting the rebound on a missed 3-pointer by Jim Williamson, made two more to make it 63-58 with 18.8 seconds remaining.
"I keep getting fouled at the end of the game," said Jacobsen, who earlier made key free throws in USD wins against San Diego State and UC Irvine. "I just step up and make them."
"Brock did it," said USD coach Brad Holland
"I want the ball in my hands at the end," said Jacobsen, who scored 12 points and is averaging 7.7 points in his freshman season for the Toreros. "I'm not scared to take the shot or to step up to the line."
USD (11-13, 5-8) will likely finish sixth in the conference, which means it could be a first-round opponent for the Lions next week at Santa Clara.
Ben Ammerman had 15 points for LMU, O'Quinn had 13 and Oduok had 11. Brian Miles and David Fizdale had 14 for the Toreros.
