It was an extremely up and down week for the Pacific Tigers.

The Tigers appeared as if they were about to go on a tear after they knocked off the BYU Cougars at home by a score of 89-82. The Tigers looked like the team many people expected them to be coming into conference play. However, Pacific reverted back to its old ways and was drilled by San Diego by a score of 70-55 on Saturday.

Despite the embarrassing loss, Pacific is still in decent shape in the conference standings. The Tigers currently stand at seventh in the standings and 1.5 games back of Pepperdine for sixth place. Finishing in the top six is Pacific’s goal for the rest of the season, considering that the top six all get a first round bye in the WCC tournament in March.
