C-USA MEN'S BB: East Carolina drops Tulsa, 72-63


TULSA — Tulsa made it 56-51 at the 6:41 mark on a Haralson jumper, but then the Pirates scored the next 10 points on a free throw and three treys to take a five-point lead at 61-56 with 3:48 remaining in the contest. The Hurricane scored just seven points over the final 6.5 minutes, while converting just two of nine free throws during that stretch, including missing seven straight from the line.

East Carolina made 7-of-7 free throws over the final 1:50 to hold off the Hurricane and capture its' first win in the series since January 2006.

Tulsa's Haralson began the game with a three-pointer and was up one-point at 5-4 before East Carolina took an 8-5 advantage at the 16:59 mark and didn't relinquish the lead the remainder of the first half.

The Pirates took its first double digit lead, 28-17, at the 4:38 mark and had its biggest lead of 14 points at the 4:15 mark and again with 3:05 remaining on the game clock.

Tulsa closed the half with a 9-0 run to cut the East Carolina lead to just five points at halftime, 34-29.

Trailing 34-20, Tulsa's nine straight points to close out the half began with a free throw by Brandon Swannegan at the 2:55 mark. Haralson added a layup, followed by a Harrison free throw, then a three-pointer by Haralson at the one minute mark and D'Andre Wright's dunk with 0:19 left on the first-half clock closed out the scoring streak for the Hurricane.

Haralson closed the first 20 minutes with 10 points and five rebounds to lead the Hurricane, while Kemp had 13 first-half points for East Carolina.

The injury bug hit the Hurricane again as 5'11" guard Rashad Ray, who had averaged 13.3 points in the previous four games, missed the contest.
