The East Carolina University Pirates basketball team is one of the rising basketball programs in the State of North Carolina. The Pirates first season was in 1931, and the team has won over 1000 games in their history. East Carolina has been conference tournament champions twice in their history, first in 1972 as a member of the Southern Conference, and again in 1993 as a member of the Colonial Athletic Association. In 2014, the Pirates joined the American Athletic Conference, thrusting the program into the national spotlight. As a member of the AAC, the Pirates are now in one of the premier basketball leagues in the country and will consistently compete against some of the nation’s top talent. ECU looks to capitalize off of this momentum and use it to create wins and help the program recruit in the basketball crazed State of North Carolina. There has never been a more exciting time to be an East Carolina basketball fan as the program pushes towards its first AAC championship.

East Carolina Pirates Rivals

East Carolina vs. NC State

Although this matchup is most noted for football and baseball, the basketball rivalry is also full of energy and excitement. ECU and NC State are only separated by about 83 miles, allowing fans from both sides to travel to away games which helps add to the fantastic game day atmosphere. The Minges Maniacs are always loud, but they pull out a little something extra when the Wolfpack come to town and it is one of the can’t miss games on the Pirates schedule.

East Carolina vs. UNCW

Pirates-Seahawks came to prominence in the middle of the 1980’s when both schools were members of the Colonial Athletic Association. When the Pirates left the Colonial in 2001, the future of the rivalry was put in question. But the schools continued to schedule each other in the non-conference, playing over 15 times since 1996. The Seahawks have had the upper hand in the last two decades, but the Pirates look to use the momentum of joining the AAC to take back the upper hand in this all-North Carolina showdown.
