Andre Young scored 16 points to lead the Tigers (9-2), who trailed for all of 25 seconds in the first half before beating the Pirates by double figures for the third straight season.

The Pirates (4-6) never seriously threatened a comeback and fell to 1-62 all-time against Atlantic Coast Conference schools.
Darrius Morrow scored 16 points to lead East Carolina, which got no closer than 15 points in the opening minutes of the second half.
