    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Darren Cooper scored 13 points and Dreshawn Vance added 12 points and 14 rebounds to lead Portland to a 73-54 victory over Seattle on Saturday.

    Portland Coach Michael Holton substituted liberally against the Division II Redhawks and the steady rotation of players may have kept the Pilots from hitting their stride.

    The Pilots (3-1) finally broke the game open midway through the second half, using a 21-7 run to take a 66-38 lead with 6:50 left.

    Holton used all 13 players he had available and 10 of them saw at least 11 minutes of action. Cooper came off the bench to hit three 3-pointers and provide four assists.

    Seattle guard Bernard Seals led all scores with 18 points. He had 8-of-19 shots, but was only 2-of-8 from 3-point range. The Redhawks (3-1) made only 32 percent of their shots and just 21 percent of their 3-point attempts.

    Portland made 46 percent of its shots and had a 42-36 edge in rebounding. The Pilot bench outscored their counterparts 40-14.
