The Portland Pilots continue to struggle on the season on both ends of the floor. The team is currently winless in the West Coast conference. In all, their offense has failed to put points on the board consistently, as there may be no way out of their current skid.
The BYU Cougars have been average in their past four games. Yet, the Cougars find themselves in the thick of things within the conference as they are the conference’s second best team.
The Pilots’ last outing versus the Santa Clara Broncos was not a blowout. However, Portland came out on the losing end due to poor shooting. This has certainly plagued them throughout the season as they are posting an average of only 67 points per game on a dismal 42% shooting from the floor.
Despite receiving huge contributions from guard Marcus Shaver, Jr. (15 points per game) along with shooting guard Jo Jo Walker (12 points per game) to rely on for production. Nonetheless, the offense for Portland continues to struggle on a nightly basis. In fact, they have reached 70 points in just one of their last ten outings. Lastly, they are currently 0-9 in the West Coast conference.
Their outing versus the Cougars on the road earlier in the season was a travesty as they were destroyed by 23 points. In this outing, Shaver, Jr. posted only 9 points along with five rebounds while Walker finished with 10 points.
The BYU Cougars are 6-3 within the conference at this time. They were able to show and prove versus the Loyola Marymount Lions in their most recent outing as Gavin Baxter posted 27 points while grabbing 10 boards in the win.
Baxter, who currently averages 4 points per game for the Cougars, took up the scoring slack on a night where leading scorer, Yoeli Childs, struggled for much of the game. He ended going 3-12 from the floor with 6 points along with 9 rebounds. Despite his lackluster outing, Childs has posted 20 or more points in 8 of the last 10 contests for BYU.
Amazingly enough, Childs is currently shooting 53% from the field for the Cougars. Also, the power forward is also powering in an average of 21 points per game. He will certainly be looking to have a repeat performance versus the Pilots after scoring 28 and 12 in their last matchup on January 10th.
