Columbia will look to get back in the win column after dropping each of its last four games since beginning the season with a 62-59 victory at LIU Brooklyn. Carolyn Binder and Miwa Tachibana continue to pace the Lions’ offensive attack. In her first year, Binder has went over 20 points twice, while Tachibana has kicked in 12.8 ppg. Taylor Ward continues to serve as the distributor, handing out 19 assists so far this season.
Portland is coming off a 70-63 victory at home against Seattle on November 24. The Pilots are 2-0 this season at home, knocking off Eastern Washington in the season-opener, 68-65, on November 8. Four Pilots are averaging over 12 points game a game, with Cassandra leading the way with 17.4 ppg. Friday’s game against Columbia is the second in a four-game homestand for Portland.
This weekend’s games at Portland and Portland State mark not only the first two matchups against those two schools for Columbia, but the first time in the history of the program that the Lions will play in the state of Oregon.
