There’s no place like home

Heading into last weekend, the Portland State men’s basketball team had every reason to believe they were about to serve Montana State its seventh loss of the season on Friday and deliver a victory over Montana the following day.


Portland State is preparing for a tough stretch against Montana and Montana State during this weekend’s two-game road trip through a state more noted for its great outdoors than indoor games.

Midseason check in

Entering the second half of the season, the Portland State men’s basketball team (7-7, 1-0 Big Sky) begins the most crucial part of its season with a stretch of conference play that began last Saturday against Sacramento State. After the end of the long winter break and the start of a new year, it’s only fitting to give a midseason report on the early frontrunners for individual honors on the team.

Too soon an end

Ending the season far too early, the Portland State women’s volleyball team suffered a shocking defeat to Northern Colorado, 3-1, in the championship match of the Big Sky tournament.

Home victory

The Portland State men’s basketball team earned its first win of the season on Saturday in the home opener against Cal Poly.

I love waffles

What’s hot, fresh and guaranteed to arouse your taste buds? Waffles, baby!

Squeezing a fresh idea between the bland Thai and burrito carts along Southwest Fourth Avenue, Parkers Waffles and Coffee combines sweet and savory items in unimaginable ways. With enough flavors and toppings to rival Baskin Robbins, they have choices to suit anyone who dares to let a waffle be different.

Just rolling through

Heading to Sacramento, the Portland State women’s volleyball team was playing its best volleyball of the season. With the Vikings’ ticket to the Big Sky Tournament punched, they prepared for a Sacramento State team that was fighting for its playoff life, with the fourth seed in the tournament still up for grabs.

One for the road

Heading into tonight’s game, the Portland State women’s volleyball team will be playing for more than just the final win of the season. The Vikings also appear to have their best chance to chalk up a win at Sacramento State, their first since joining the Big Sky Conference in 1996.

Home sweet home

The Portland State men’s basketball team opens up home play in the Park Blocks tomorrow night after last weekend’s tough road trip in Seattle. The Vikings (0-3) look to regroup against Cal Poly (0-2), a team undergoing new coaching and philosophy changes of their own.

Not in Kansas anymore

Returning with a 0-3 record to start the season, the Portland State men’s basketball team has separated itself from last year’s team in all the wrong ways. Losing to Belmont, Wright State and Washington over the weekend at the Athletes in Action Classics in Seattle, the Viks now have more questions to answer.

Portland State Volleyball secures championship

Hosting Northern Arizona and Northern Colorado for their final home games of the season, the Portland State women’s volleyball team (19-7, 13-2 Big Sky) played as close to perfect as possible Friday and Saturday. The Vikings claimed their second regular season championship in three years in decisive wins over the Lumberjacks and Bears.
