ECU's Cold 2nd Half Too Much To Overcome Against Tulsa

TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Ben Uzoh scored 23 points as Tulsa rallied
from a 10-point first-half deficit and snapped a two-game losing
streak by beating East Carolina 72-62.

The win puts Tulsa (18-9, 8-4) back into the race for second
place behind Memphis in Conference USA. Justin Hurtt scored 17
points for the Golden Hurricane.

Sam Hinnant led East Carolina (13-13, 5-8) with 21 points, 16 of
those in the first half when he made all four of his 3-point
attempts.

The Pirates shot a torrid 53.8 percent from the field in the
first half to take a 39-33 lead but made just 7-of-33 shot in the
second half and finished the game at 36 percent.

Tulsa opened the second half with an 18-4 run to take a 51-43
lead. Tulsa led 60-48 with 7:10 left and kept the Pirates at bay by
making 10 of 11 free throws in the final 4:10.
