Portland Pilots 

Portland managed a .500 run over their first 20 games with an 11-11 record. The Pilots put up a rough 2-5 stretch in the next seven outings, losing to LMU, Gonzaga, Pepperdine, Saint Mary’s and Santa Clara along the way. 

On Thursday versus San Francisco, Portland was down 56-53 going into the second half. The Pilots kept the pace on 36 points from there but ended up losing 92-89. Moses Wood scored 28 points with nine rebounds and Tyler Robertson added 22 points in the defeat. 

Pacific Tigers 

Over on the Pacific side, they didn’t quite hit .500 to start the year, going 10-12 overall. The Tigers managed a 3-4 run in the next seven with losses to BYU, Portland, San Francisco and LMU alongside wins versus Santa Clara, Pepperdine and San Diego. 

Matched up against Saint Mary’s on Thursday, the Tigers were down by 17 points going into the second. Pacific was drilled 35-21 from there and lost big 83-52. Jordan Ivy-Curry was the only double-digit team scorer on 11 points. 


I’m going to take a stab on Portland here. The Pilots are sitting on a three-game losing streak, but they’ve been fairly competitive in comparable matchups lately. Portland has been scoring well with 80 or more points in five of their last six games. As for Pacific, they lost 81-73 the last time these teams met up back on February 9 at Chiles Center. I like this one to be a pretty close outcome, so you could probably make a case for the Tigers. It’ll be a fun game to watch.
