ECU, Staff reports

Monday, February 11, 2019

Sophomore Erin Poepping was named American Athletic Conference softball pitcher of the week after a brilliant opening weekend showing at the USC Upstate Spartan Classic.

The weekly selection was the first of Poepping’s career and first for the Pirates since Lydia Ritchie on Feb. 20, 2017.

Poepping’s pitching helped ECU go 4-1 during opening weekend.

She was 3-0 with a 0.46 ERA and 13 strikeouts against two walks in 15.1 innings in Spartanburg. She allowed one earned run the entire weekend and tossed two complete games while holding opponents to a .123 batting average.

ECU kicks off a 16-game homestand this weekend when it welcomes Cleveland State, Purdue, Saint Francis (Pa.) and Wagner to Greenville for the three-day Pirate Clash. The Pirates’ first home game is Friday versus Wagner at 5 p.m.

Basketball preview

Struggling East Carolina welcoming Memphis to Minges Coliseum on Wednesday night will serve as the Pirates beginning a two-week stretch of playing three out of four games at home.

ECU (9-14, 2-9 American) is 1-8 since beating Cincinnati on Jan. 5. That includes a 78-72 defeat at Memphis, and most recently a 72-68 loss at South Florida in overtime on Sunday. 

Starters Isaac Fleming, K.J. Davis and Jayden Gardner all fouled out versus USF in a game the Pirates led by 13 points late in the first half. Gardner finished with 11 points and three rebounds in 23 minutes.

Memphis (14-10, 6-5) is 2-4 in its last six outings. The Tigers got 16 points off the bench from Tyler Harris in their win over ECU on Jan. 10. Harris was 4-of-11 from 3-point range, and the Pirates were 4-for-22.

The East Carolina women (12-11, 3-7 Amer­i­can), who won 68-59 over Mem­phis in Greenville on Satur­day, are on the road for both of their games this week with matchups against SMU on Thurs­day and Hous­ton on Satur­day. Lashonda Monk continued her stellar season for the Pi­rates against Mem­phis with 22 points. Raven John­son had 13 points and nine re­bounds.
