History[edit]

Portland State began play in 1975. They joined the Northwest Basketball League in 1977, playing until 1982. They joined the Mountain West Athletic Conference (MWAC) from 1982 to 1986 before departing to become Independent from 1986 to 1991. They played in the Pacific West Conference from 1991 to 1996 before departing to go to the Big Sky Conference. In their time in Division II, they made the Tournament from 1992-1996, making the Final Four in 1992 and the Elite Eight in 1995 and 1996. They went to the Final Four after beating Alaska-Anchorage 101-76, Cal-Davis 83-56, and Saint Joseph's (IN) 83-62. They lost to North Dakota Sate 93-59 in the Semifinals, but they won a consolation game 72-69 against Bentley to be crowned 3rd in the Division II ranks. [2] In their time since joining Division I, they have made the NCAA Tournament once, in 2010 (after winning the conference tournament) and the WNIT twice, with a regular season title as well. As of the end of the 2015-16 season, the Vikings have an all-time record of 553-603. [3]
