BUIES CREEK —East Carolina's men's basketball team is 0-for-2 in its most recent pair of trips to Campbell, and Monday's 76-74 loss will probably sting for a while.

The Camels erased a 15-point deficit to beat the Pirates for the second consecutive time in Gore Arena in a game that featured 57 fouls and 31 turnovers.

After a 19-4 Campbell run gave the Camels a 73-66 lead with 3 minutes, 31 seconds left to play, ECU (1-1) stormed back and had a shot to win at the buzzer, but Paris Roberts-Campbell's open 3-point look from the right corner hit back iron as the buzzer sounded.
