Alex Frazier has lived up to her preseason notion that she can be a dependable scorer for this East Carolina women’s basketball team.

The junior guard is on a scoring surge heading into tonight’s home game against American Athletic Conference last-place squad Memphis, having scored at least 12 points in four straight outings. She is at 6.9 points per game for the season, which is up from her marks the last two years (4.0 and 3.1), and from when it was at 5.1 in mid-December.

ECU (13-11, 5-6 American) is 4-2 in its last six games thanks in large part to the guard play by Frazier and Lashonda Monk, a freshman who has moved up as the Pirates’ leader in scoring during league action.

Monk started ECU’s previous four games, which led to scoring increases for her and Frazier. Even in an 88-47 defeat at South Florida last Wednesday night that stopped the Pirates’ three-game win streak, Frazier totaled a team-high 13 points and Monk had eight.

Memphis (7-17, 2-9) last won Jan. 13 at Tulsa, which was followed by seven straight losses heading into tonight.

East Carolina did not have a men’s or women’s basketball player lauded by the American Athletic Conference as a preseason all-conference pick.

The AAC released its preseason polls Monday, which had the ECU men 11th out of 12 teams and the Pirate women in eighth place.

UCF led the…

It is the time of year when perspectives can become very contrasting for college football teams depending on where they are in the standings.

Very often, the great teams already have found ways to survive and stay on top, whereas the hard-luck teams often continue to lament coming close but not…

The East Carolina football team is turning to true freshman quarterback Holton Ahlers for this week and with a long-term plan in mind for the 6-foot-3, 236-pound left-hander to be the leader of the ECU offense.

Coach Scottie Montgomery announced Monday during his weekly news conference that Ahlers,…

One thing that stands out with first-year coach Joe Dooley about the East Carolina basketball team’s big men is their potential.

The Pirates are not going to overpower many teams in the post — they’re tallest player is 6-foot-9 freshman Rico Quinton — and they are young, but…

It was easy to think back to East Carolina football’s successful run in Conference USA during Saturday night’s game against Houston at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.

The first reminder was Houston being the visiting team. The Cougars occupied the same visiting sideline Dec. 5, 2009, for a…

These three questions appeared in the Pirate Gameday section previewing the East Carolina-Houston football game, which ended as a 42-20 win for Houston that could have been more lopsided if not for a few late touchdowns by the Pirates.

Speaking of those touchdowns ... 

1. Which ECU quarterback…

A week-long theme of a possible new-look East Carolina football offense did not come to fruition Saturday night against Houston at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.

On a night when ECU had its first announced crowd of less than 30,000 since the finale of the 2005 season, the Pirates used all three of their…

East Carolina’s football offense started too slow and delivered too little again on Saturday night in a 42-20 beating at the hands of visiting Houston.

From third-down miscues to an inability to reach the red zone to a touchdown drought that stretched seven full quarters, ECU (2-4, 0-3…
