Pooh Jeter goes down swinging against Finland

By Wally Jeter

Ukraine is currently 1-1 after two days of action. Hired gun (and ex Portland Pilot) Pooh Jeter has been everything Ukraine has hoped for but he can only do so much for a team lacking NBA talent. Tuesday they will face Turkey, who gave the US a tough game for 3 quarters on Sunday.

Pilots Flashback: November 15, 2008

By Wally Jeter

Just to get everyone excited for the season, let's take a look at this grainy footage from 11/15/2008. The night the Pilots took down a much hyped University of Washington Huskies team in the first game of the 2008-2009 season. Their team had future NBA players Isaiah Thomas, Quincy Pondexter, and Jon Brockman but we had future lawyer Ethan Niedermeyer along with Nik Raivio and Robin Smeulders playing out of their minds. After this night, they never played us in Portland again.
