Women’s Basketball

In November, the East Carolina women’s basketball team was picked to finish in sixth place in the top-heavy American Athletic Conference, but after a disappointing showing in conference-play things turned out differently.

The Pirates (11-18, 2-14 AAC) lost their final game of the regular season, 81-65, to Houston, finishing in last place in the American.

Coming off a big win against Cincinnati on Senior Night, ECU traveled to Houston (11-17, 4-11 AAC) to determine which team would occupy the last seed in the conference tournament. Despite a strong performance from the Pirates, Jasmyne Harris’ 27 points for the Cougars was too much to overcome.

Both teams faced long scoring droughts in the first quarter and tried to overcome them very differently. The Cougars continued to attack the basket while the Pirates kicked it out to Antoinette Bannister and Khadidja Toure for 3-pointers. A Kristen Gaffney layup at the first buzzer cut Houston’s lead to four, 14-10.

Bannister led all ECU players in scoring, dropping 16 points while making four 3-pointers. Toure buried two 3s as well to contribute to her eight points. This is the third game in a row that the Pirates made five or more 3-pointers, one of the few areas of improvement for the team over the course of the season.

It was a closely contested second quarter in which both teams swapped baskets. Even though ECU was never able to take the lead, but maintained a one-point deficit for much of the quarter, Alex Frazier’s pace helped the Pirates hang around despite a late flurry from Houston, giving them a six-point advantage going into the half, 33-27.

ECU came out of the locker room playing much tougher. Assisted by four Frazier free throws and layups from Gaffney and Bre McDonald, the Pirates won the quarter and cut the Cougars’ lead to just three points.

Gaffney’s 3-point burst in the third quarter accounted for almost half of the captain’s points for the night. The senior followed up her 20 points and 11 rebound double-double on Senior Night with seven points and nine rebounds.

But as the team has been prone to do, ECU let up an 8-0 run that put it in a hole for the rest of the game. Bannister did her best to keep the Pirates in the game, but three 3-pointers from Houston cancelled out her eight points to end the quarter. Houston went into the final frame with a 59-48 lead.

It wasn’t a very compelling fourth quarter as the Cougars kept adding onto their lead. A run in the middle of the quarter pushed the lead to a game-high 22 points. Frazier scored three points to add to her total of 14 — her career-high. ECU’s six-point run to end the game cut the lead back down to 16 for a final score of 81-65.

The Pirates’ inability to cash in from the charity stripe contributed to their loss in a major way. ECU attempted 32 free throws but only made 17. The other 15 would have cut the lead to just one point.

ECU will open up the conference tournament in the first round playing the sixth seeded team, where the Pirates were picked to finish four months ago. The tournament is scheduled to begin on March 3 and seedings have not been finalized.
