East Carolina Pirates
Losers of three of their last five, these bottom-feeders hit the road to take on a Houston team that beat them by 16 points on their home court. With their season all but over, East Carolina is just looking to get this year over with.
This is a sub-par basketball squad that really doesn’t do anything well. Their offense efficiency ranks 302nd overall, while their defense isn’t far behind ranking 252nd. On offense they rank 308th in PPG and 201st in RPG, while on the defensive side they rank 168th in PPG and 166th in FG%.
East Carolina is going to rely on Senior guard B.J. Tyson to help keep this game close, but he’ll need to score more than his average of 14.7 PPG if they even want to keep this game within single digits. It is hard to find motivation for this squad.
After reeling off five straight victories, Houston dropped a close one to a conference rival in Memphis. Besides that close loss, Houston has been playing some exceptional basketball as they’ve been able to beat a couple top-10 teams this year.
On the offensive side they rank 43rd in efficiency, and on the defensive side they are doing even better ranking 15th in efficiency. They are led by their Senior Rob Gray who is averaging 17.6 PPG and 4.3 APG. As a team they are 90th in PPG and 21st in RPG.
On the other side their defense ranks 23rd in PPG, 18th in FG%, and 13th in 3PT%.
Houston is only two games back of first place while there are three games remaining to make up that ground. With their remaining schedule they can very well win out, but they need to take it one game at a time and take out this below average team.
