These two teams last met on January 25th in Portland. In that game, the Toreros did just enough to earn a 65-63 victory.
San Diego is in eighth place with a 5-10 record in conference play. Portland sits fifth with a 7-7 record. The top six teams earn a bye into the quarterfinals of the WCC Tournament. Portland has a half game lead over sixth place Pepperdine and can maintain that position with a win tonight.
For the Toreros, who are two games out of sixth place with Gonzaga and BYU left on the schedule, a bye is likely out of reach.
San Diego is led by the backcourt duo of Johnny Dee and Christopher Anderson. They'll be facing a hobbled at best Pilots' backcourt. Starters Kevin Bailey (missed past two games) and Alec Wintering are both questionable for tonight with calf injuries.
