Recap


Washington State 72, Portland 60: Brock Motum registered a season-high 29 points as the Cougars took a big early lead and responded to every rally by the visiting Pilots.

Ryan Nicholas led the way with 17 points and nine rebounds for Portland (3-4), which is winless in four road games this season. The Pilots made 11-of-25 from 3-point range.
