The 2014 Pilots Courtside twitter campaign has begun!

Objective: Get Ryan Nicholas on the Portland TrailBlazers Summer League Team!


Let's make it happen PC readers! Someone on the team needs to rebound and it's sure not going to be LaMarcus Aldridge.

Cason back in PDX

By Wally Jeter 

 Portland State has yet again added a former Pilot to their roster. Former Pilot big man Dorian Cason (2011-2012) played 1 season for the Pilots averaging 4.6 pts / 4.2 rebs / 2.5 fouls. After being suspended before the start of his Sophomore Season for "Violation of Team Rules", Dorian played only 1 game for the College of Southern Idaho last year before tearing his ACL on a put back dunk. Well, Portland State is giving him a 3rd chance and it's no wonder because he's a 6'7" / 210 interior bruiser! Also, based on my notes from that season.... I remember him being scary:

Boots and Hose

By Wally Jeter

The decision has been made and Ryan Nicholas will be taking his talents to Germany! He will be joining top level German club Mitteldeutscher BC Weissenfels of the Basketball Bundesliga (BBL). The BBL is a league with past Pilots Robin Smeulders and former Zag Elias Harris. Don't worry ladies, Rhino doesn't have to report to the club until mid August, so he will still be training in Portland until then.
