Portland, OR (Sports Network) - Kevin Bailey scored a game-high 18 points, leading four starters in double figures, as the Portland Pilots held on for a 70-67 win over the San Diego Toreros in a West Coast Conference battle at the Chiles Center.

Ryan Nicholas and Derrick Rodgers both tallied 15 points for the Pilots (11-18, 4-10 WCC), followed by Thomas van der Mars with 10 points and a game- high 10 rebounds as the team won for the second time in the last three outings.

The Toreros (13-15, 6-7) were led by Johnny Dee with 12 points, while Chris Manresa and Ken Rancifer both dropped in 12 points for a squad that lost for the third time in as many games.

Portland, which held the visitors to just 37.0 percent shooting from the floor and 1-of-7 beyond the arc in the first half, closed the period on an 8-0 run in order to take a 31-27 lead at the break.

In the second half USD remained competitive with a sizzling 60.0 percent accuracy from the floor, but at the same time the hosts made good on 53.6 percent from the field as well.
