    Way to go pirates, huge road win down in Wilmington, that is a huge confidence booster, and grif, are you one of those bandwagon UNC or State fans of Williamston, a town whose county borders Pitt County, or are you just insane? Its people like you that I wish would move away from Williamston and go somewhere else, and it probably should be to the north. Shame on you for embarrasing Williamston like that.

    Tarhell fan of gvegas, how about move your butt away from Greenville and go up to Chapel Hole where you belong then. Greenville is a pirate city, and we don't need more of this UNC-Duke mess. It's overrated, plus the elite basketball programs I like happen to be UCLA, Michigan St., and Kansas, but I would still pull for pirate basketball over them why? Because i am loyal to them.

    The EZU basketball team would lose to the Tarheels by at least 60 points.

    Way to go, Pirates on your win last night. One critque: work on defense. In the first half, it looked very sloppy. But otherwise a good game.

    If channel 7 airs an ECU game. A tv with rabbit ears will pick up channel 17 in Raleigh pretty clear most of the time. Just disconnect the cable and put in the rabbit ears. Too easy
