PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Holland Woods poured in 27 points and Portland State won its fourth straight game in its new home, knocking off cross-town rival Portland, 87-78 in a nonconference game on Wednesday night.

Portland State brought its rivalry with the Pilots to Viking Pavilion after winning back-to-back games at Portland the last two seasons. The Vikings are 4-0 in their new digs.

The Vikings pushed their lead to as many as 19 points after Jamie Orme's jumper with 8:54 left. Malcolm Porter's jumper with 7:01 left pared the deficit to 10. Porter hit a 3 and Marcus Shaver Jr. added two free throws to get it to 81-76 with 1:08 to play, but the Pilots could get no closer.
