Moussa punishes Crusaders

By The Associated Press

GREENVILLE — Moussa Badiane scored 26 points, pulled down 10 rebounds and blocked six shots to lead East Carolina to a 77-50 win over Division II Belmont Abbey on Sunday.

Courey Rouse also had a double-double for the Pirates (3-2), with 15 points and 11 rebounds before fouling out.

Mike Cook added 11 points and 12 assists for ECU.

Rafael Moreira had 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Crusaders (1-1), scoring on all seven free-throw attempts — half of the team's 14-20 free throw total.

Damien Humphrey, with 10 points, was the only other player in double figures for Belmont Abbey, which was harried defensively for most of the game by an ECU team seeking to atone for a sloppily-defended 90-60 loss at Gardner-Webb on Tuesday night.

East Carolina took a 35-30 lead into halftime, shooting 44.1 percent from the field — failing on all five 3-point attempts — to Belmont Abbey's 30.3 percent.

The Pirates picked up the pace in the second half, shooting 64.3 percent on field goals and going 4-7 on 3-pointers, while the Crusaders sank to 22.2 percent and missed all seven 3-point efforts.

ECU's next game is Wednesday, when the Pirates host Mid-American Conference power Toledo at 7 p.m.
