Pirates look to rebound from Bahamas Showcase

The East Carolina University (2-5, 0-0 AAC) men’s basketball team will attempt to climb back into the win column on Saturday when the Pirates match up against James Madison University (4-3, 0-0 CAA) in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

It will be eight days since the Pirates grabbed their last win when tip-off transpires against the Dukes. Last Friday, playing in the Islands of the Bahamas Showcase, ECU took down the University of Evansville (4-3, 0-0 MVC) by a score of 85-68.

Just 10 days prior, the Purple Aces had defeated the No. 1 ranked University of Kentucky Wildcats (6-1, 0-0 SEC), sending the college basketball world into a frenzy.
