Pilots hoop season hard to figure

It's a big weekend for the basketball program at the University of Portland.
Both the men's and women's team get a shot at showcasing how far they've progressed toward being prepared for the West Coast Conference season.
The women get a home game with Oregon on Friday, while the men's team plays in a four-team tournament Saturday in Las Vegas beginning with a game against Colorado State.
The women's team is 4-7 and lost five straight at one point. But, they Pilots have won their last three games against solid opponents - Nevada, Fresnoto the 73-49 win and was named the WCC Player of the Week.
Oregon has struggled mightily, winning just its first game Sunday to improve to 1-8.
Portland's men's team is 5-6 having hammered Portland State 81-60 and played competitively with both Washington State (72-60), and UNLV (68-60). But, the Pilots only narrowly beat Div. III Lewis & Clark (78-73), and got absolutely drilled by Ohio (81-52 and Kentucky (74-46).
