ECU pays USM back; ends Golden Eagles' season

TULSA, OK (WDAM) -

Jamierra Faulkner again lead all scorers with 18 points, grabbed seven rebounds and dished eight assists, but it wasn't enough to advance her team to the Conference USA tournament semi-finals. The University of Southern Mississippi women's basketball team's season ended with an 89-60 loss to East Carolina University in the quarterfinals on Thursday night.

Only Jerontay Clemons (12 points, five rebounds) and Niesha Pierce (fouled out with 11 points, two rebounds) scored in double figures after Faulkner. While four Pirates scored in double figures, lead by Kristine Mial's 17 point, nine rebound night, the problems for USM primarily dealt with taking care of the basketball.

The Golden Eagles committed 22 turnovers, and only forced the Pirates to cough up the rock 10 times. Joy Lee-McNelis's bunch was also out-rebounded 45-35. In the end, the Pirates pay back Southern Miss for the handy loss the Golden Eagles dealt in Reed Green to end the regular season.
