GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Derrick Wiley scored 23 points, and Erroyl Bing had 18 points and 15 rebounds in East Carolina's 75-70 win over TCU on Saturday.
Belton Rivers scored 16 points for the Pirates (11-12, 3-10 Conference USA), who never trailed in the game.
East Carolina led by as much as 15 points in the first half when Bing's 3-pointer made it 46-31 with a minute before the break. Shropshire scored on a 3-pointer of his own to narrow the score to 46-34 at halftime.
The Pirates kept the lead in double digits for much of the second half. But
Santee hit one shot from the line at 7:48, then scored on a layup about a
minute later to make the score 67-56, starting a 16-8 run that cut East
Carolina's lead to 5 at the final buzzer.
