The men's basketball team concluded their best non-conference finish since the 2007-08 season with 10 wins. Three of the wins were on the road and seven at the Spanos Center, with the most recent being over UC Irvine in an overtime thriller.

Last weekend they had a tough start to WCC play, losing a close battle to BYU 90-87, and suffering a road loss at San Diego.

They look to pick up their first conference win this weekend as they are on the road to face No. 5 Gonzaga and then off to Portland for a Saturday match up. They return to the Spanos Center on Thursday, January 17th to face USF, where Pacific athletics will honor former UOP great, Dell Demps, by retiring his jersey at halftime.
