Players to Watch
Julius Hodge -- Wolfpack guard leads the team in scoring, and is the catalyst for his team. Look for Hodge to have a big night against the Pirates.
Mike Cook -- Physical guard is averaging 21.5 points a game for the Pirates. He's a versatile scorer who can put points up in a variety of ways.
East Carolina freshman Josh King turned down an offer to walk-on at NC State to sign with the Pirates. ECU offered a scholarship late in the process, and King accepted it.
Pirate center Moussa Badiane missed the BCA opener due to a suspension for playing in the Chavis League this summer. He returned to action against Oregon State and recorded 13 points, five rebounds, and five blocks.
Badiane is just 49 blocks short of former Cincinnati Bearcat Kenyon Martin's Conference USA career record of 292 blocks.
Wolfpack guard Julius Hodge celebrated his 21st birthday last night.
