[ANALYSIS] Despite a 9-9-1 record, perennial power Portland earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Division I Tournament.

Pilots were 6-8-1 with four games to play but won three of their last four games to reach the .500 mark necessary for consideration.

UP's wins over ACC champion Florida State and the Pac-12's Washington State to open the season were huge as was a win over Oregon State, which it will open against in the first round.

Despite its fantastic support, Portland will have to travel to Corvallis for the game.

The Pilots finished only fifth in the WCC with a 4-4-0 record. Champion Pepperdine, San Diego and Santa Clara earned bids, but fourth-place BYU (11-5-3) did not.

The Cougars, who joined the WCC in 2011, had beaten beaten Portland, 2-1, in their first conference game. It was their only win in six games against tournament-bound teams.
