Morrow Dominates In ECU Victory Over Coker

GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Darrius Morrow scored 25 points to lead East Carolina to a 63-50 win over Coker on Thursday night.

Tied at 17 with 9:03 left in the first half, the Pirates (2-1) pulled away for a 33-26 lead at the break.

East Carolina opened up a 10-point advantage in the second half, but the NCAA Division II Cobras (2-1) got within five, at 38-33 with 13:30 remaining.

A Paris Campbell jumper and a Morrow dunk sparked a 7-2 run to get the Pirates' lead back into double figures.

East Carolina has won 25 of its last 26 games against non-Division I opponents, but Coker stayed closer than the last four, who lost by an average of 32 points.

Julian Nelson scored 14 points to lead the Cobras, who won the battle of the boards 41-32.

The Pirates outshot Coker 47.2 percent (25 of 53) to 33.9 percent (21 of 62).

    I don't know what to make of this athletic program . On one hand you have top of the line facilities, 50,000 for football every home Saturday . ECU has every thing you need to be in a BCS conference except 1 small thing! A REAL TEAM! Holland is begging to get into the big east but the football team is losing to Utep and the basketball team is losing to the likes of the Campbell Camels in a gymn smaller than most local high schools!Its just hard to figure! There must be alot of changes in the athletic dept. soon or everyone will soon agree all the money spent to build those wonderful facilities was wasted, sort of like flushing millions down the toilet! Well thats just this humble ECU grads. opinion.

      The real Dave would never dare use the term "beat" here on WITN, if he knew what's good for him on this site. Then again, he has as little intellectual ability as this caricature; so who knows. LOL!!! Dave, Dave, Dave, shame, shame, shame... (a perfect match...)

      Ever heard of the terms "parody", "hyperbole", or "trolling"? Yes, this "dude" is just "joking". I assume that your UNC-CH "education" is from a local high school, huh... "dude"?
