STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) — Jeremiah Bailey scored a season-high 21 points as Pacific routed Portland 84-57 on Thursday.

Jordan Bell added 18 points and nine rebounds for Pacific (6-5, 3-4 West Coast Conference), which snapped its four-game losing streak. Broc Finstuen added 11 points and eight rebounds. Justin Moore had 10 points.

Pacific scored a season-high 45 points in the first half, shooting 55% (17 of 31) with seven 3-pointers. The Tigers finished 52% shooting for the game with nine 3s.

Michael Henn had 13 points for the Pilots (6-13, 0-10), who have now lost 11 games in a row. Isiah Dasher added 10 points. The Pilots were outscored 40-16 in the paint.
