Pirates top Maryland Eastern Shore

The East Carolina University (2-4, 0-0 AAC) women’s basketball team dominated and defeated the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (1-5, 0-0 MEAC) by a score of 57-42 yesterday with the help of a strong defensive effort by the Pirates.

"I'm so excited we got the win because we needed it,” head coach Kim McNeill said. “We talked about it before the game that we were in desperate need for a win but I'm not happy with the way we won the game because there's a standard and there's an expectation for this program.”

Freshman guard Taniyah Thompson led the charge for the Pirates with 19 points, six rebounds and three steals.
