Portland Named Mid-Major Team of the Week!

...by Jeff Goodman of Fox Sports:


MID-MAJOR TEAM OF THE WEEK: We're giving co-awards to Portland and Mercer. How about new Mercer coach Bob Hoffman, who took over a team that won 11 games last season and proceeded to knock off Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Portland coach Eric Reveno and the Pilots got a huge victory over Washington.


Other WCC bits:


WORST SLIP-UP: Washington's loss to a Portland team picked to finish sixth in the West Coast Conference. The Huskies are expected to contend for the NCAA tournament, but the only guy who truly showed up was Jon Brockman (30 points, 14 rebounds) -- who put up yet another double-double.

CREDIT: Give it to San Diego coach Bill Grier, who suspended three of his top players for the season-opening loss to UNLV. Gyno Pomare served a one-game suspension while Trumaine Johnson (out indefinitely) and Clinton Houston (six games) didn't play as well.

WEEK TO FORGET: New Loyola Marymount coach Bill Bayno lost his first three games as head coach (to UW-Milwaukee, Iowa State and UC Davis) at the World Vision Classic at Iowa State.
