STOCKTON (AP) — Roberto Gallinat scored 16 points and grabbed seven rebounds and Pacific held on to edge Portland 74-70 on Saturday afternoon.

Gallinat was 10 of 12 from the free throw line for the Tigers (12-10, 2-5 West Coast Conference), who snapped a two-game skid. Jeremiah Bailey added 12 points and nine rebounds and Lafayette Dorsey had 11 points.

Pacific had a 42-26 rebounding advantage over Portland.

The Tigers were up 37-22 at the break and led throughout the second half. Portland battled back early in the period to close to 56-51 on a Marcus Shaver Jr. layup with 5:57 to play but Gallinat sank nine free throws in the final 5:36 to help keep Pacific on top.

Shaver finished with a career-high 30 points with five rebounds for the Pilots (7-15, 0-7), who have lost eight straight.
