STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) Miles Reynolds scored 25 points and hit the game-winning jump shot with 3.5 seconds remaining to lift Pacific over Portland 60-58 on Saturday night.
Pacific (13-14, 8-6 West Coast Conference) rebounded from a 10-point loss to No. 12 Gonzaga on Thursday and has won three of its last four games. Portland (10-17, 4-10) has lost two straight.
Portland’s D’Marques Tyson made three straight 3-pointers and Franklin Porter added another and the Pilots led 58-55 with 58 seconds to play. Reynolds made three free throws to tie it at 58, but on the Pilots’ next possession, Malcolm Porter stepped out of bounds with 11.1 seconds left. Following a Pacific timeout, Reynolds dribbled the floor and pulled up at the top of the paint and sank his jumper.
Roberto Gallinat had his first double-double of the season for the Tigers, finishing with 15 points and 10 rebounds.
Tyson scored 14 points and Philipp Hartwich had 12 for Portland.
