PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Bryce Pressley had 16 points and nine assists and scrappy Portland upset No. 22 Gonzaga 82-73 on Thursday night, snapping a 20-game losing streak in the series between the two teams.
The loss also snapped the Bulldogs’ 22-game winning streak in West Coast Conference games.
Gonzaga (14-3, 4-1) had won four straight to open the conference season after a 72-62 loss to Kansas State on Dec. 21. However, the Pilots (10-7, 2-3) were determined from the start, stretching their lead to 17 points in the second half.
Alec Wintering had 14 points for the Pilots and Kevin Bailey added 13.
Sam Dower led Gonzaga with 14 points off the bench.
