Meanwhile, San Francisco is in 3rd place in the WCC with a record of 6-3 and come in off a 75-66 win over Santa Clara Saturday.

Senior F Cole Dickerson scored a team-high 28 points on 12 of 17 shooting and grabbed 8 rebounds, while junior F Kruize Pinkins added 14 points and 6 rebounds. On the season, the Dons are averaging 77.4 ppg on 48.3 percent shooting. Dickerson leads the team with 14.6 ppg, followed by sophomore G Cody Doolin at 13.0 ppg.

Rick’s Pick: The line in this matchup is currently set at -2.5 for San Francisco and the Dons took out Portland 87-81 in OT the last time these two hooked up, but remember the Pilots bigupset over Gonzaga a couple weeks ago. They have some scorers that can get it done. The points look like the play here.
