Portland finishes the 2013-2014 season on a sour note, dropping four straight games, including two heartbreakers to San Diego and Pacific. If the Pilots could have pulled out a victory in any of those four games, they could have avoided playing a Thursday game in Las Vegas.

Nonetheless, Portland will have to deal with Anthony Ireland in the first round of the WCC tournament. The Pilots could receive a boost if one or both Alec Wintering and Kevin Bailey are healthy enough to play.
