    If you feel that way about ECU, why don't you spend your time on something more worthwhile than making negative comments on the internet?

    ECU basketball is still a joke. I'd rather spend my money on something worthwhile

    We couldn't beat Oak Hill? You obviously know nothing about basketball outside of what Roy Williams says, right? Am I pegging you right? Go Heels, right? Go away.

    It's wonderful to support your school, but at least be realist. ECU couldnt beat Oak Hill the 12th ranked h.s. team. Craigs list isnt exactly full of ECU/Marsh Tix 4 sale & people wouldnt drive 20 miles to see them play if it were free. Hey man ECU tonight? Nah cost 8 bucks in gas.

    RDoubleD, I'll tell you the catch. It's the students at ECU. That's the catch. It's going to be a good game that ECU should win since ECU beat Marshall at Marshall. I took my boys to that game against Houston for the night and they enjoyed it. It's also worth going a total of 250 total miles there and back to watch an ECU basketball game.

    It is great to see ECU basketball gaining support. Coach Lebo has done a great job so far and the Pirates are playing some good basketball. Hope people continue to come out to the games because when full Minges can be a very tough place to play for visiting teams.

    ECU basketball games are sometimes sparse. hopefully there will be a good turn out.

    Let me guess RdoubleD...you are a Kerilina or a Duke "basketball" fan.

    It is refreshing to see fan interest in ECU basketball again. With some winning seasons, ECU can recruit some of the great high school talent in our own backyard here in Eastern Carolina and around the country. Coach Lebo is a great hire by Terry Holland.
