Portland has played four games in the conference schedule thus far and lost all four. The first two were not particularly close.
The Pilots then lost by seven against San Diego and by two on the road at Santa Clara and both of those teams are 3–1 in the conference.
But just a close game against Gonzaga is asking something completely different. Portland is #300 in the KenPom rankings and its defense is even worse than that.
The Pilots can score a little bit — they shoot close to 40 percent from three-point land. But they are not going to compete at the Kennel unless they can put some stops together. Such is not likely.
Meanwhile, Gonzaga has snuck back into KenPom’s top-10 with four wins in a row since a loss at San Diego State to end the non-conference.
The Bulldogs are alone at the top with St. Mary’s and that may not change until the two meet on the same floor.
Last week’s 19-point win at Loyola-Marymount has been Gonzaga’s narrowest WCC win four games into the schedule.
Even on a team that scores 90, there really aren’t enough points to go around. The Bulldogs have five guys in double-figures, but that number should be seven. Silas Melson and Corey Kispert are fantastic, averaging just eight, nine points per game.
Any seven of the guys who lead the ‘Zags in scoring can drop 20 on you and that’s what I enjoy the most about Mark Few’s team.

Free Pacific vs. Gonzaga NCAAB Prediction: Gonzaga keeps on steamrolling WCC opponents.
These wins don’t mean a whole lot, but in a season with a lot of big dogs losing often, Gonzaga should slowly make its way up the rankings and maybe even into the discussion for a number-one seed.
