The East Carolina women’s bas­ket­ball team’s los­ing skid hit three games Satur­day when it be­gan Amer­i­can Ath­letic Con­fer­ence play with a 68-57 loss at Tu­lane.

ECU (9-5, 0-1 Amer­i­can Ath­letic Con­fer­ence) hasn’t won since de­feat­ing South Carolina State 71-63 on Dec. 21.

Ariyana Williams came off the bench to score 15 points (all on 3-pointers) and starting point guard Lashonda Monk returned after a one-game absence and turned in a double-double of 11 points, 10 rebounds, five steals, seven assists and one turnover, but Tulane (11-3, 1-0) enjoyed a decisive rebounding advantage in the win. The Green Wave, which led 41-21 at halftime, finished with a 55-35 advantage in rebounds thanks in part to a huge game by Krystal Freeman.

Free­man achieved her third dou­ble-dou­ble of the sea­son by half­time. She fin­ished with 17 points and a ca­reer-best 20 re­bounds, which were the most boards by a Tu­lane player since March 11, 2011. Team­mate Kaila An­der­son had nine as­sists, match­ing ECU’s to­tal in as­sists.

Tu­lane ex­tended its win streak ver­sus the Pi­rates to five games. ECU is 1-6 against the Wave since join­ing the Amer­i­can.

The Pi­rates’ next two games will be at home, be­gin­ning with play­ing Wi­chita State on Wed­nes­day at 7 p.m. in Minges Coli­seum.
