PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Terrell Brown and Myles Carter each had a double-double to help Seattle beat Portland 67-56 on Monday night.
Seattle (10-3) is off to its best start since the 1968-69 season, when it finished at 19-8 after losing 75-73 to Weber State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
Brown's layup made it 15-0 less than five minutes in and Kavas hit a jumper to give Seattle a 20-point lead with nine minutes left in the first half. Josh McSwiggan's 3-pointer pulled the Pilots within 11 with five minutes to play and he made another 3 that trimmed their deficit to 59-52 with two minutes left. Brown answered with a layup and, after Portland missed a 3-point shot, Means hit two free throws to give Seattle an 11-point lead with less than a minute to go.
McSwiggan led the Pilots (6-7) with 14 points. Portland has lost six of its last seven.
