    Beroth transferred to Georgia State University to play for Baldwin-Tener. I'm sure she'll be very successful there with a fantastic career. She really could have helped ECU.

    Beroth was a Baldwin-Tenor recruit, and a good one at that. We will sure miss her next year.

    Macy isn't good for this program. From what I've seen, she obviously isn't connecting with her players. Needs to step it up or the woman's gone. No respect for players = no respect from fans.

    Look here Ned, I as an ECU Alum have nothing against this coach so before you go off spouting ignorant statements such as telling someone to get a life, learn 2 things boy. # 1 I just said that it's a bad start, and yes everybody gets the tendency to have bad starts. # 2 I had a question out of curiosity based on who recruited her. If you can't answer the question, then you have no business to tell either one of us to get a life, and even if you did answer the question then you still would have no business. I'm sick of people like you who think you know everything and trying to act like none of us have lives when we work our tails off. BTW, even though I have not been to any games, due to living 135 miles from Greenville, I still keep up with the basketball teams, and each of my travels to Greenville lately have been for the football games. Ignorance at it's finest!

    coach Macy is a great coach, has put in an exciting new offense and needs time for her ball players to learn the system. Let her get her own recruits there and talk about her abilities. 4 games and you rush to judgement. And how many games have you attended? Michael and Sam, get a life, Macvy is good for us.

    This is a bad start for Heather Macy and the ECU Women's basketball team. I wonder if Alana Beroth was a Macy recruit or a Baldwin-Tenor recruit.

    I agree, The new coach is not good for us. Weve already lost to american and UNC-W. We have to start winning more games. I say she's gone at the end of the season
