East Carolina vol­ley­ball couldn’t turn its early ad­van­tage into a win Sun­day af­ter­noon in New Or­leans, where Tu­lane ral­lied for a 3-2 vic­tory (23-25, 15-25, 25-17, 25-19, 15-9) against the Pi­rates.

The up­set by Tu­lane dropped ECU (20-11, 11-7) into a tie for fourth place with Cincinnati in the Amer­i­can Ath­letic Con­fer­ence. ECU and the Bearcats (13-17, 11-7) play twice this week to com­plete the reg­u­lar sea­son.

The fourth set be­tween Tu­lane (14-17, 3-15 AAC) and the Pi­rates was tied at 14-14 be­fore the Green Wave took con­trol and won 25-19. The Wave then scored six of the first seven points in the de­ci­sive set.

Lael Ce­ri­ani was ECU’s leader with 13 kills and she also pro­vided 13 digs for a dou­ble-dou­ble. Tu­lane’s Lexie Dou­glas had 18 kills.

The Green Wave, which lost 3-2 to East Carolina in Greenville on Oct. 13, posted a .256 to .185 edge in hit­ting per­cent­age.

Hoops pre­view

After a home loss to Cen­tral Con­necti­cut State last Fri­day night that sur­prised many peo­ple, East Carolina’s bas­ket­ball team is back at home for tonight’s game against Cleve­land State in Minges Coli­seum.

Tip off is at 7 p.m.

Both teams are 1-2. For ECU, it has lost con­sec­u­tive out­ings, fall­ing 73-66 to Red­ford and then 79-68 to CCSU in a game in which the hosts led for only 4:02.

Veter­ans Ken­trell Barkley (15.3 points per game) and B.J. Tyson (14.3) are lead­ing the way, as ex­pected, for an East Carolina squad mainly void of ex­pe­ri­enced post play­ers.

CSU and ECU do have a com­mon op­po­nent in Cop­pin State. The Pi­rates beat Cop­pin State 76-50 to be­gin the sea­son, and Cleve­land State just got a win over Cop­pin with an 80-56 vic­tory on Fri­day.

Guard Kenny Car­pen­ter was 10-of-17 from the field and 6-of-11 from 3 point range — to­tal­ing 26 points — for Cleve­land in its win.
