Pirates Blow Past Wichita State, 79-62

The East Carolina women’s basketball team led it from the jump, using their squelching defense paired with their highest scoring output in two months to run past the Wichita State Shockers, 79-62, Sunday afternoon in Minges Coliseum. Amiya Joyner and Danae McNeal did the things that have become their signatures for the Pirates: a double-double for Joyner, and a heap of steals for McNeal.
