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.

The touchdowns might have looked easy at times for D.H. Conley’s C.J. Johnson and Elizabeth City Northeastern’s Traveon Freshwater on Friday night because of their superior size, strength and talent, but they were feeling pain just like the other players on the field.

East Carolina football will hold its second and final preseason scrimmage today at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.

Last week’s scrimmage was defined by a stingy effort up front by the defense and the Pirate offense airing it out often and hitting some deep passes.

As much pressure as there is on the East Carolina running backs to make big plays when they are in space, there is possibly even more pressure on the Pirates’ offensive line to create adequate space for the backs to roam.

Linemen and running backs working cohesively is paramount for a…
