The East Carolina women’s basketball team fell into a hole at Memphis on Saturday and could not climb back out in an eventual 72-36 blowout loss.

The Pirates (8-8, 0-3 American Athletic Conference) lost their third straight game and remained in the hunt for their first league win of the season. The Tigers (6-9, 1-1), meanwhile, coasted to an easy wire-to-wire home win for their first in the American.

Despite emptying its bench in the loss, no ECU player reached double digits in scoring, with Salita Greene leading the effort with eight points, followed by seven from Raven Johnson and six from Thais Oliveira..

Memphis, meanwhile, boasted a pair of 20-point scorers in Brea Elmore (22) and Cheyenne Creighton (21).

The Pirates were blitzed in the first half, trailing 39-15 at the break after scoring nine points in the first quarter and managing just six more before the intermission.

Unable to buy a basket in the opening minutes of the game, the Pirates fell behind 9-0 in the first quarter, and Oliveira’s jumper that opened the ECU scoring came nearly five minutes into the game.

Not much changed after that, as the Tigers continued their run and led convincingly, 23-9, after the first period, with the biggest ECU offense in the quarter coming on Alex Frazier’s and-one play inside.

ECU shot 22 percent from the floor in the first and were at 20.6 by halftime.
