Portland State Vikings Basketball History

The Portland State Vikings are a Division I program located in Portland, Ore. Portland State competes in the Big Sky Conference and is coached by Jase Coburn.

Portland State has made two trips to the NCAA Tournament, most recently in 2009 under Ken Bone. The Vikings went 23-10, claimed the Big Sky Tournament title and, in doing so, earned an automatic bid to the Big Dance. As a No. 13 seed, they lost in the first round to Xavier, 77-59.

The only other tournament appearance came the previous season, during which they also won 23 games. The Vikings swept the conference regular season and tournament titles and wound up losing to top-seeded Kansas 85-61 in the first round of the NCAAs.

Portland State’s postseason history also includes two trips to the Tournament. It is 0-2 in the consolation event, with losses in 2014 and 2018.

Before joining Big Sky in 1996, the program had a nomadic existence. Following a brief stint as an NAIA independent, Portland State joined the Oregon Collegiate Conference in 1949. It then transitioned to the Division II level in 1965, where it remained until 1981. Portland State dropped basketball in 1981 due to finances, and the program remained dormant for more than a decade before it returned in 1996.

The Vikings’ Division II stint coincided with the arrival of Freeman Williams Jr. Williams Jr. was the nation’s top scorer in both 1977 and 1978, and a consensus Second Team All-American in 1978. He finished his collegiate career with 3,249 points, which now ranks third all-time at the Division I level behind Pete Maravich and Antoine Davis. The Boston Celtics selected Williams Jr. with the eighth pick in the 1978 NBA Draft.

The program — once nicknamed the “Park Block Bombers” because of the school’s proximity to the park blocks in Portland — has had modest success at the Division I level. The Vikings have had three 20-win seasons, two of which resulted in NCAA Tournament appearances. They overcame odds to win their first Big Sky title in 2005.

Coburn was promoted to head coach in 2021 after Barret Peery left for an assistant position at Texas Tech. He is 26-36 over two seasons at the helm.
