RENO, Nev. (AP) Holland Woods scored 11 of his 18 points in the last four minutes to help Portland State hold off Sacramento State 71-67 on Tuesday night in the first round of the Big Sky Conference Tournament.

The sixth-seeded Vikings (20-12) will face No. 3 seed Eastern Washington (18-13) in a Thursday quarterfinal. Portland State has won five of its last six games, and split the regular season series with the Eagles.
