East Carolina Pirates Basketball Road Games

East Carolina Pirates Basketball Road Game tickets

East Carolina Pirates Basketball Road Schedule in 2014-15

The East Carolina Pirates are ready to hit the court this season and travel all around the country in doing so. The Pirates are coming off a 2013-14 season in which finished with a.500 record, but it was their 5-11 mark in conference play that hurt their chances of finishing at or near the conference standings. The Pirates have been a part of Conference USA for years now, but this season they're moving over to the new American Athletic Conference. In their new conference the Pirates will be looking to show their new foes that they mean business, and what better way to do that than to perform at the highest level during their first season as a member of the AAC. The Pirates will have some tough matchups to deal with over the course of the 2014-15 season, but they look up to the challenge.

The Pirates will have to travel to play the reigning National Champion Connecticut Huskies this season in what will probably their toughest contest of the year. The Huskies entered the NCAA Tournament as a seven seed last postseason but were able to run the table thanks to the leadership of Kevin Ollie. The Huskies have to be one of the favorites to finish atop the AAC standings this season, and the Pirates would love to get a win in Storrs this season. If the Pirates can defeat the Huskies it will be a huge confidence boost for this program.

Another tough test facing the Pirates this season will be when they head out to play the Louisville Cardinals. Under head coach Rick Pitino the Cards are always one of the top teams in the nation. They won the National Championship just two seasons ago and had another solid run in the tourney last season, so this team is not going to be easy to take down. The Pirates would love to get a huge victory against a powerhouse program like this one, and Pirates fans will surely be traveling to Louisville to see the game in person.

The Pirates have put together many a fine season since then, giving their fans some great hardwood memories over the years. This fan base has responded by attending each home game in big numbers. Historically, the Pirates had one of their best seasons in 1993, when they went all the way to the NCAA Tournament after taking home the Conference USA Tournament in style.
