The Pirates (4-1) scored their first nine points on 3-pointers,
two by Jenkins and another by Captain, and led by six early. But,
shooting below 30 percent in the first half, they never led by more
than seven points before settling for a 23-17 halftime lead.
Sam Hinnant hit consecutive 3s less than six minutes into the
second to double the Pirates' lead to 40-28, as East Carolina
improved its performance to nearly 57 percent shooting (17-of-30)
in the half.
