GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Kyle Greathouse scored 12 points to lead Western Carolina to a 56-48 victory over East Carolina.

Greathouse made three 3-pointers in the first half and the Catamounts (6-6) went to the half up 30-25 over the Pirates (3-4).

Western Carolina led 48-36 with 6:20 remaining in the second half, but East Carolina narrowed the gap to only four points on a Courtney Captain layup with 59 seconds remaining.

Captain stepped out of bounds on the Pirates' next possession and turned the ball back over to the Catamounts, who then extended the lead to six on free throws by Jared Outing and Greathouse.

Sam Hinnant, Taylor Gagnon and Corey Rouse each had 10 points for the Pirates, and Rouse had 11 rebounds for the game's only double-double.

Corey Muirhead added 10 points and five rebounds for the Catamounts.
