East Carolina freshman Shawn Williams was named American Athletic Conference basketball rookie of the week on Monday after scoring a career-high 30 points to lead ECU to an 88-85 overtime home win against Memphis on Saturday. Williams made six 3-pointers and scored 10 of the Pirates’ 11 points in the extra period.

He is one of two freshmen in the American who has won the award three times this season. He is also the first Pirate freshman to win it three times since B.J. Tyson in 2014-15 on his way to being a unanimous all-rookie team selection.

The 30-point game against Memphis was the first by any ECU player in an AAC game and first by a Pirate freshman since Steve Richardson in 1990. On Wednesday against Tulane, Williams scored 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting with two rebounds and a steal in an overtime loss to Tulane.

Women’s award

East Carolina women’s basketball guard Lashonda Monk also was named American Athletic Conference freshman of the week on Monday afternoon.

The Greensboro native averaged 19.5 points, 7.0 steals, 6.5 assists and shot 55.0 percent (15-of-27) from the field in two ECU home victories. She scored 19 in the Pirates’ comeback win against Wichita State on Tuesday, then posted a new career-high with 20 points in ECU’s 76-47 rout of SMU on Saturday.

Along with being the team’s leading scorer in those contests, Monk recorded 10 steals against the Mustangs for the second-most steals by a player in a game in program history.

Coach Heather Macy’s squad has won three consecutive games and four of its last five contests in league play.

Usual backup Darius Pinnix is first on the East Carolina depth chart at running back this week, and there is optimism that he could provide the jolt desperately needed for the Pirate run game Saturday versus lowly Connecticut.

Such a conventional breakthrough also is not guaranteed, which is why…
