The Scouting Report
Before last season, the only other time a Portland Pilots game went to triple overtime was in 1984—before any players on the current roster were even born. On January 23, though, the Pilots made history by defeating BYU in 55 minutes of play. Not only did they set a school record against a Division I opponent with 114 points that night, but the Pilots also accomplished something they never had: a win against the Cougars.
This season, BYU will return to Portland in late February in search of revenge, this time determined not to take a misguided power nap between the second and third overtimes. Prior to that showdown, the Pilots will defend the Chiles Center court against a full slate of opponents, including Oregon State on December 6 and Saint Mary’s on January 24.
Though the school itself was established in 1901, the University of Portland’s sports teams didn’t become the Pilots until 1935. The new nickname reflected a budding nautical spirit around campus—a fitting ethos for a school that overlooks the Willamette River. That new era saw many changes: a pilot’s wheel became the university’s logo; the newspaper was renamed The Beacon; and Wally Pilot relinquished his seat in Congress to become the new mascot. Today, the Pilots represent their school across a variety of men’s and women’s sports, taking the field or the court in front of a supportive fan base led by the Purple Pride, a group that strives to increase student involvement in university athletics.
