Next Game



The Portland Pilots visit the Washington State Cougars on Saturday night as WSU continues its long stretch of home games. The game will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks at 7:30 p.m. PT.

Portland comes in at 3-3 following a 78-73 victory of Lewis and Clark. The Pilots are led by junior forward Ryan Nicholas, who takes 31 percent of the shots while he is on the floor. Nicholas hasn't been that efficient with his shot, as his effective field goal percentage sits at 41. He does rebound exceptionally well, grabbing 26 percent on the defensive end and 11 percent of his own team's misses.

The Cougars are coming off back-to-back home wins after a three-game losing streak. WSU took down border rival Idaho on Wednesday behind 26 points from Brock Motum. The Aussie is one of the most voluminous shooters in the country, as he is taking 35 percent of the shots while he is on the floor. That is good for 12th-most nationally.

KenPom predicts a 67-57 WSU win with 85 percent confidence.
