Oct. 8, 2010
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Season tickets are now on sale to the general public for the 2010-2011 East Carolina men's and women's basketball season on ECUPirates.com and at the ECU Athletics Ticket Office.
The men's home schedule is complete with 16 games and season tickets begin at just $100 with the Economy Plan and Young Graduate Plan. Pirate Club Priority and Faculty/Staff packages are also available and range from $180-$220. Each men's season ticket purchased includes a season ticket for the women's games.
The priority deadline to order or renew 2010-11 men's basketball season tickets is Wednesday, Oct. 13. All Pirate Club season ticket holders purchasing at full price will retain their seat location provided they meet the deadline.
The men's home schedule includes last season's Conference USA regular-season champion UTEP and tournament winner Houston along with visits from Memphis and UAB. The home non-conference slate features the renewal of two former conference rivalries as Charlotte and Old Dominion visit Williams Arena at Minges Coliseum.
Under first-year coach Jeff Lebo, the Pirates are loaded with an experienced roster that consists of 10 returning lettermen that includes all five starters. ECU returns over 97 percent of its scoring and rebounding led by senior all-conference guard Brock Young.
Coming off of another successful season in which it advanced to the postseason, the women's team also has the good fortune of a returning veteran squad that includes all five starters for new head coach Heather Macy. The home schedule features Maryland, Massachusetts, UNC Wilmington and conference rivals UCF and SMU. Season tickets for women's basketball start at just $25.
The men host Montreat on Nov. 5 in their lone exhibition and the women host Mount Olive Nov. 6 in their only exhibition.
