Hopefully a bag of tricks will lead to treats for Pirates

Greenville, N.C.-- As the Pirates prepare for the next AAC matchup against the UConn Huskies, staying focused and practicing hard is key to success.

The Pirates have had one of their worst starts in conference play in years and this week head coach Scottie Montgomery has a plan to fix the problems.

This week will be Montgomery's first homecoming at ECU and is also a few days before Halloween.

"With Halloween coming up, I'm sure some of them think about it, but we have a plan for that," Montgomery said. "We work on it during the offseason."

The key for the Pirates  to earn their first conference victory will be to establish a running game.
