Portland 80, Wis.-Milwaukee 60

Jared Stohl scored 15 points, all on 3-pointers, to lead

Portland to an 80-60 season-opening victory over

Wisconsin-Milwaukee on Friday at the Athletes in Action

Classic.

Luke Sikma added 14 points and 12 rebounds and freshman Tanner

Riley 14 points to lead the Pilots. Tone Boyle scored 13 points to

pace the Panthers.

The Pilots never trailed and set the tone early with a 19-2 lead

behind eight points from Sikma. Stohl had a trio of 3-pointers in

the first half, including one that put Portland ahead 40-18.

Wisconsin-Milwaukee ended the half with eight unanswered points,

including back-to-back 3-pointers by Boyle and Lonnie Boga.

The Panthers closed within nine points five times early in the

second half, thanks partly to Anthony Hill, who finished with

11.

points for Portland.
