Portland is locked in a tight battle with San Diego in the WCC race. Both are 7-10 in the conference but the Toreros hold the tie-break over the Pilots if they end up tied. That could be a big deal because if both lose Saturday, one of the two will end up being in the No. 7 slot.
That would be the Pilots, who would then have to play an extra game in Las Vegas with the hopes of getting to the NCAA Tournament.
But Portland has the better matchup against the Pacific Tigers, who they beat at home in their first meeting, while the Toreros have to take on BYU, a team on fire as the season comes to a close.
Can Portland do what it needs in order to try and avoid that No. 7 spot in the league? We will find out here at 3 p.m. Pacific.
