2017-2018 Schedule

Post by StudentPilot on Tue Aug 08, 2017 6:57 pm

Here's the link to the women's schedule for the 2017-18 season: http://portlandpilots.com/schedule.aspx?schedule=1340&path=wbball

Thankfully only one Pac-12 school this year, Washington.  Last season the women were beaten up pretty early in the season by four Pac-12 schools.

Home attendance at the women's games has been pretty sparse in recent years, so even though five of the home games will be played while the UP students are on Christmas break, there should be plenty of opportunities for screaming grammar and middle-school kids to attend for free during the break.  tongue

The coaches have spoken/voted, and today in Las Vegas the Pilots were picked to finished 10th again this year.
1. Gonzaga
2. Saint Mary's
3. BYU
4. San Diego
5. Loyola Marymount
6. Santa Clara
7. San Francisco
8. Pacific
9. Pepperdine
10. Portland

Next month Coach Sorenson begins her 4th year at the helm, and this season she's added 7 newcomers to the team to help her finish somewhere besides 10th place during her tenure to this point....but none of those 7 or the other 7 returning players were named to the Preseason All-Conference Team.

This is the Pilots WCC record over the last three years:

2014-15   2-16
2015-16   1-17
2016-17    4-14
Of note, 4 of the 7 UP WCC victories over those 3 season have come against Pepperdine, the team picked to finish 9th this season.

Many long-time supporters/fans of UP WBB have fallen by the wayside over the last few years....it would be nice to see the program turn around and return to the heady days of the 90's, soon!
