Pirates Fall To Campbell On The Road 76-74

BUIES CREEK, N.C. (AP) -- Trey Freeman scored 20 points and Campbell rallied from a 15-point first-half deficit to beat East Carolina 76-74 Monday night, matching the largest comeback to in coach Robbie Laing's nine seasons.

The Camels (2-0) trailed 32-17 with 8:07 left before halftime. After getting to 51-45 with 15:57 remaining, the Pirates (1-1) scored the next seven points.

Campbell finally tied it at 64 with 6:09 left on a Marvelle Harris layup and opened up a seven-point lead. East Carolina fought back to tie it at 73 with 28 seconds to play.

Anthony Horton made two free throws for the Camels and Rico Ferguson hit the first of two foul shots with 5.7 seconds on the clock.

Miguel Paul, who led the Pirates with 20 points, drove the length of the floor and dished to Paris Roberts-Campbell in the right corner, but his 3 attempt at the buzzer bounced off the rim.

Four Pirate players scored in double figures led by Miguel Paul's 20 points. Robert Sampson added 14, Austin Steed scored 12 and senior Darrius Morrow fouled out with 10 points.

ECU will host Coker on Thursday night at 7:30pm as part of a double header at Minges Coliseum with the Pirate women's team who will host Virginia Intermont at 5:30pm.

    If u guys ACTUALLY listened to the game or watched u would know that they were cheating terribly. Even Coach Lebo and Jeff Charles were mad and I mean REAL mad.

    They can't even beat that little school? We know the football team sucks but it appears it's spreading.

    Tough early Season loss for ECU.Campbell is not a bad team. ECU will be fine.It is hard to win on the road in hostile enviroment. ECU Had a chance to win at buzzer.Things don't always go your way.

    Doesn't matter how many or who scored how many points. Bottom line is they LOST. Need to analyze why they lost or did they beat themselves.
