The East Carolina Pirates are excited to tip off their 2012-2013 college basketball season. The Pirates will operate under head coach Jeff Lebo. Gold Coast Tickets wants to make sure you get the best deals on East Carolina tickets as Lebo hopes to take the Pirates to their first NCAA Tournament game since the 1992-1993 season!
The 1992-1993 was flawed as the Pirates has a losing record but went on to win the Colonial Athletic Association League. Last season was not much better for the Pirates as they finished a mere 15-16, and did not advance to any tournament. However, they are starting to improve as the team is almost over that .500 milestone. The Pirates will return leading scorer Miguel Paul, who transferred from the Missouri Tigers after his Freshman year. Paul usually is plays alongside his partner in crime, Darrius Marrow, but Marrow graduated this past year. Marrow was on the Conference USA first team and had a huge impact on the Pirates program. The Pirates will have some pretty big shoes to fill after the loss of Marrow this season.
The Pirates come into the 2012-2013 season with one of the best recruiting classes they have had in a while. They are bringing in Forwards, Marshall Guilmette and Mike Zangari to pick up the slack in the frontcourt. The two were known as prolific rebounders in high schools, and look to bring that sort of tenacity to the table at the college level. This season the Pirates hope to make it to the NCAA Tournament with good home court play at the beautiful Williams Arena at Minges Coliseum. It will be in Greenville, North Carolina where the Pirates will have to make their mark as they try and glide into the tourney.
Gold Coast Tickets does not want you to miss out on the action as Lebo and Paul plan on turning the program around. Grab the best seats in the house at the Williams Arena and follow your Pirates on the road with Gold Coast Tickets.
