I picked UNLV by 10+ on ESPNs streak for the cash, that's what. I have the pick of death (going for a 5 game losing streak right now)

I dont have faith in UP to hold the lead. UNLV will settle in and win by double digits

A little torn, root for UNLV because I live in Vegas and have adopted them as the team I root for after Gonzaga? Or root for wcc team to upset a top 25 team? Again I wish they could fill the stands... Good showing for UNLV fans behind their bench. Come on Pilots where you at?

I see almost as much red as purple in the Chiles Center tonight.

By the way, my friend who is a student at UP has informed me that they had a raffle for a semester's tuition to try to get students to go to the game.

We are blessed so much at GU.

You think K2 sells out for UNLV? Well we did for Lewis and Clark whatever university so I do believe we would. I have to assume the empty seats at chiles tonight are zag fans who bought season tix for one game... and that game isn't tonight. Too bad, this is a good game. I'd have gone

Coach Reveno trying to get the crowd fired up. It's kind of working.

Absolutely disrespectful dunk by Bennett with 6 seconds to go. I would have just pulled back and let the clock run out.

Oh, well, the Pilots worked hard against a noticeably more athletic team. It'd be nice if ESPNU knew that the Portland Pilots pilot ships and not airplanes.

Fouls absolutely killed Portland and quashed 2 key momentum swings they made for themselves.

He was one of my better friends in high school! He's always had the skill and work ethic (not so much the athleticism) to be a very good player.

UNLV was missing arguably their best player in Mike Moser and looked pretty sloppy the entire game. Good come from behind win on the road for them. They'll be good this year but still have some major issues to work out. Anthony Bennett is an absolute monster and will be a lottery pick. I like the cram down to finish the game, the Pilot center had a couple cheepys into his back earlier in the game. Bennetts game end dunk was a nice agressive, payback FU by a freshman.

UP played really well. They have some talented players and are coached well. I'd be suprised if they're not in the top half of the league.

I'd be suprised if they're not in the top half of the league.If we always played the way we did last night, I'd completely agree. But having also watched our loss @ Montana State and the rest of our losses, I'd say success is far from likely for this team.

The Pilots have the potential to be a top-half team in the WCC but whether they'll put it together on any given night has been a mystery to this point. I could just as easily see a Wednesday game in Vegas as a top-half finish for this team.

Shipstad,

Explanation for the low fan turnout? It was a game against a ranked opponent on an ESPN network, but the bleachers behind one backboard were stacked up?

Shipstad,

Explanation for the low fan turnout? It was a game against a ranked opponent on an ESPN network, but the bleachers behind one backboard were stacked up?Fan turnout has been a recurring theme for us for a long time. It was marginally better during our recent 3-year stretch of good basketball but even then we were wondering why we couldn't get more momentum behind the program. There is a lot of discussion on this thread (http://www.pilotnation.net/t4907p30-pilots-wsu-saturday-730pm-pac-12-network), and on the page I linked in particular, about this very subject. We don't have a great answer, to be honest. We all wish more people would show.

I grew up in Spokane and became a Zag fan around the time of Calvary and Dickau (2000ish?) so I'm not well versed when it comes to GU basketball before then. What was it like before the Zags were selling out every game? How did the fanbase progress? Does it take an Elite Eight run to really grab the attention and, let's be honest, wallet of the average fan??

For the record, my support for the Zags died when I enrolled at UP in '07. I still wish them well, especially OOC, but I'm a Pilot 'til I die.
