    GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Marvett McDonald scored 17 points, including 4-of-5 from 3-point range, to lead UAB to a 76-64 win over East Carolina on Saturday.

    The defeat keeps the Pirates winless in in Conference USA (5-11, 0-4 C-USA) and against the Blazers who have defeated East Carolina in all three previous meetings.

    Donell Taylor added 12 points and Marques Lewis scored 11 in a low-scoring game for UAB (13-4, 3-1), which led 40-31 at halftime.

    The Blazers have scored more than 100 points three times this season and came into the game averaging 82.4 points per game -- second in the league and 14th nationally.

    The Pirates had four players in double figures, led by Corey Rouse's double-double of 17 points and 14 rebounds. Moussa Badiane scored 15 points and Mike Cook and Tom Hammonds added 11 each.
