Heather Macy on the verge of becoming East Carolina’s winningest women’s basketball coach coincides with the Pirates beginning American Athletic Conference play and on a hot streak.

ECU, which is 8-5 overall and 7-1 in its last eight games, hosts Cincinnati on Saturday at 5 p.m. in Minges Coliseum. Cincinnati (8-5) is 1-2 on the road this season and since 2014 the Pirates have posted a 6-1 record against the Bearcats.

Many eyes will be on Macy for this contest. The eighth-year coach is tied with Sharon Baldwin-Tener for first in program history with 126 wins at East Carolina. Macy is 126-107 during her tenure.

“She cares, but not really (too much) about it,” said Pirate senior Thais Oliveira, who has two double-doubles this year and is fourth in the AAC in blocked shots. “She has a bigger plan for this program I am pretty sure she’s going to accomplish that.” 

The Pirates’ lone loss in their eight-game surge came in overtime versus UTEP in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Since then, ECU routed Savannah State 103-37 and beat Maryland-Eastern Shore 64-54.

Cincy is 2-2 in its last four games and hasn’t played since topping Bowling Green, 75-51, on Dec. 21. Junior guard Nikira Goings is the team’s leading scorer (13.4 points per game) thanks to a 34-of-81 shooting mark from 3-point range.
