Pilots @ Montana 12/3 6 PM PST

Post by DaTruRochin on Thu Dec 02, 2010 12:05 pm

To reiterate, tipoff is at 7 pm MST... So Portlanders, tune in at 6, unless you want to miss most of the game...

Big road game against a deceptively difficult opponent... They CRUSHED Idaho by 42 at home a little while ago, and kept it respectable @ Utah and Nevada. In other words, this should be a very very good test for our Pilots.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little bit concerned about this game. It's on the road and Missoula can be a tough place to play at. Montana is led by Will Cherry an athletic point guard averaging 17.2 pts, 3.8 steals, and 4 rbs (4 rbs is really good for a PG), center Brian Qvale (6-11, 260) averaging 15.6 pts, 7.6 rbs, and 3 blocks, and forward Derek Selvig (7-0, 230) averaging 10.2 pts. The Grizzlies have some athleticism and some size so it will be a good road test for our Pilot squad.

Campbell (.478). He led the WCC last season in three-pointers made per game (3.1) and his 98 three-pointers tied for second place in UP single-season history, eight shy of Peter McKelvey’s record from the 1991-92 season. Stohl also owns the UP single-game record by drilling 10 three-pointers on Dec. 22, 2009 against Idaho, breaking his own school record. He finished 10-for-15 from three-point range for 30 points. He set the previous record by going 9-for-13 against San Francisco on Jan. 15, 2009.


Pilots Among WCC Statistical Leaders

Stohl Earns Preseason All-Conference Nod

Knutson, Sikma Voted Team Captains
Portland head coach Eric Reveno always lets his players choose the team captains at the beginning of every season. This year, Pilot seniors Kramer Knutson and Luke Sikma were voted captains by their peers. Knutson is a three-year starting center and two-time WCC All-Academic pick, while Sikma earned All-WCC honorable mention honors last year.


Staff Stability
Eric Reveno was named the 2009 WCC and District 9 Coach of the Year after leading UP to a 10-win improvement during the 2008-09 season. Now in his fifth year on The Bluff, Reveno credits the stability of his coaching staff as key to the program’s turnaround. All three assistants that joined Reveno when he was hired in April of 2006 have remained on the Portland bench ever since. No other team in the WCC has kept an entire staff together the last five years. Reveno is the third longest tenured WCC coach behind Gonzaga’s Mark Few (12) and Saint Mary’s Randy Bennett (10).

Three Recruits Inked During Early Signing Period
Portland signed Kevin Bailey (Clovis, Calif./East Clovis HS), Dorian Cason (Fontana, Calif./Summit HS) and David Carr (Portland, Ore./Central Catholic HS) to National Letters of Intent during the early signing period, head coach Eric Reveno announced. Bailey is an athletic and skilled 6-5 wing who is rated a top 150 national recruit according to Rivals.com and is the No. 11 prospect in the state of California. Cason is a long and mobile 6-7 power forward, also rated as a top 25 California prospect. Carr is a sharpshooting 6-2 guard that also led his high school team in rebounding and assists last season.


Two-Year Run Best in UP History
The Pilots strung together one of the most successful two-year runs since Portland joined Division I for the 1958-59 season. With 19 WCC wins in the last two years, the Pilots established the best two-year league run for wins in program history. The team has also matched the single-season wins mark (21, 1994-95) and wins in consecutive seasons mark (40, 1994-96).

Up 12 early: 19-7! I'm really liking our depth this year. I think we're deeper than last year...

That Will Cherry kid is a heck of an athlete...responsible for a 6 point turnaround. We're still up 6...21-15 and Sikma is playing a pretty strong game once again.

Yeah, that was a big one. Nem's buckets are so big with all of the attention that Stohl receives this season, and Kramer and Sikma played well. Rodgers' last rebound really helped. Nice team victory...

Pilots win, 58-54! A solid road win in a very difficult gym... Montana fought back several times, and the Pilots responded each time by smacking them back down.

Nem with a great game, and Rogers with a strong defensive effort. Smile

Rogers really put Cherry on lockdown, and only let him score one layup in the 2nd half (which I'm pretty sure came when Rogers wasn't on the floor).

Its really encouraging to see this team continue to win games they should (especially on the road) not to mention having solid contributions from a number of different guys...

Next up... Neutering those thuggish brutes from montlake who can't even spell the word "dog" Razz

Pilots Give Grizzlies First Home Loss, 58-54

MISSOULA, Mont. --- The Portland Pilots dealt the Montana Grizzlies their first home loss of the 2010-11 season with a thrilling 58-54 victory Friday before 3,589 at Dahlberg Arena. Junior guard Nemanja Mitrovic scored a game-high 16 points to pace Portland (7-2), who have now won three games in a row and improve to 2-0 in true road games this year. The Grizzlies had their three-game win streak, all at home, snapped with the loss.

Senior forward Luke Sikma added 13 points and nine rebounds for the Pilots and senior center Kramer Knutson finished with 10 points.

Montana (3-3) overcame an early 12-point deficit to take the lead early in the second half, but the Pilots held the host Grizzlies without a point over a four-minute and nine-second stretch late in regulation to push the team to victory. Montana missed their final nine free throw attempts and finished 8-for-20 at the charity stripe for the game.

The Grizzlies were also held to 4-for-18 from the three-point line and 43 percent shooting from the field by the Pilot defense. Portland, meanwhile, shot 55 percent from the field, made 5-of-8 three-pointers and 9-of-14 free throws.

Sophomore UP guard Derrick Rodgers gave the Pilots a big defensive boost in the second half, holding UM leading scorer Will Cherry to just two points in the period after he scored 13 in the first half.

Portland led by as much as 12 points in the first half, but a tip-in by Brian Qvale at the halftime buzzer cut the Pilot lead to 32-29.

Cherry led the Grizzlies with 15 points and seven assists in the game, while Qvale added 11 points.

Portland will continue their four-game road trip with a trip to Seattle, Wash. to face the No. 22 Washington Huskies on Monday at 7 p.m. The game will be televised live on FSN Northwest and on the airwaves on 800 AM (KPDQ).

I do believe REV has himself a defensive backcourt stopper in the form of Mr Derrick Rodgers developing for WCC play...the only minus is it cuts into playing time for some of the young guys...I guess that happens when your program gets be better...redshirts like John Bailey and limited pt for "future starters" like tanner and other rookies...a price Mesa is willing to sacrifice for success NOW!!!

Thanks for the link to that article PG. I think the quote by Sikma really explains the inside-outside game that the guys have gone to the last two games:

"Our offense is kind of predicated on taking whatever they're giving us," said Sikma, the son of former NBA great Jack Sikma. "We knew they were playing the 3-point shooters pretty tight so we had single coverage on the blocks. We all have confidence in each other and the guards were encouraging us to just go for it."

Our inside game has been noticeably improved in the past two games, even Hannibal has been getting into the act. Hopefully, that continues going into WCC play...

I did not view or listen. But it looks like Rev really shortened the bench this game. Only 8 players total, and 4 starters played 31 to 36 minutes. Tanner was the only freshman to play, and only 7 minutes. Close game in a difficult road environment drove that, I suppose. But I think we 'll need several of those youngsters to contribute by the time conference games begin.

I think tanner would have played more, but he got a little loose with the ball and was having difficulty defending... I think the shortened bench was a product of Rev wanting to limit freshman mistakes in a winnable game, and with the game coming up next, a little road confidence is a good thing, especially considering what happened at Hec Ed last year...
