After game winning free throws from Miguel Paul in a Round 1 victory over Savannah State, East Carolina has been thrashing their opponents. The most recent was a 81-58 thumping over Evansville. In a game where they had four players in double figures, the Pirates jumped out to a large lead early and never even got close to relinquishing it.
The only team to have been more dominant than ECU in this tournament would be Weber State. The Wildcats opened with a 32-point shellacking of Cal Poly and continued their dominance until Saturday where they were finally tested by Northern Iowa. Weber State held on for a 59-56 win improving their record to 30-6 on the season.
What People Are Saying
Sandra Bullock is a graduate of East Carolina. Wonder if she's en route to Ogden for the CIT Championship game.— Jon Kasper (@jon_kasper) April 1, 2013
It should be a good crowd at Weber State tomorrow that's for sure but I could have sworn Sandra Bullock went to Ole Miss.
The Four Factors
East Carolina hasn't played a game decided by less than 10 points since Mar. 19, but every game so far in this tournament has been at home for the Pirates. Going on the road, to what should be a wild environment at Weber State, will be devastatingly tough for ECU. The Wildcats haven't lost a home game since Dec. 15, and I don't see their 16-game home winning streak being snapped Tuesday night.
Weber State 79, East Carolina 69
