— Kristine Mial led four Pirates in double-figures as she poured in a career-high 20 points in East Carolina’s 68-59 victory over Houston on Thursday night to extend the Pirates’ winning streak to five. The ECU defense held the Cougars to 21.9-percent shooting in the first half and only allowed one three-point field goal in the game.

Mial tallied a season-high 16 points in the first half alone and finished the game with her first 20-point performance of her career. The junior forward also added five rebounds and one assist while shooting 50-percent from both the field and beyond the arc. Celeste Stewart contributed 15 points, four assists, two boards, one block and one steal. Whitny Edwards posted 13 points, six rebounds, three steals, and two assists, while Kyani White recorded 11 points, three assists, a trio of rebounds and one steal.

Ariana Jackson led the defense as she tied her career-high with 12 rebounds and added two points, one steal, and one assist. Tatiana Chapple added seven boards to tie her season-high, while registering four points and one assist.

Houston (9-12, 3-5 C-USA) took an early 10-5 lead but the Pirates went on a 9-0 run to turn the five-point deficit into a 14-10 advantage at the 12-minute mark. ECU’s (16-5, 6-2 C-USA) defense was solid as it did not allow Houston a field goal for more than seven minutes. East Carolina, led by the hot-shooting Mial, led by as many as 12 in the frame and took a 35-23 lead into the locker room at halftime.

The Pirates led throughout the second half, but the Cougars made it close as they chipped away at ECU’s 12-point lead and cut it to one. However, East Carolina was determined to earn the win as they went on a 15-2 run highlighted by a pair of three-pointers from Stewart to take a 61-47 advantage with 6:19 left in the game. From that point on, the Cougars were unable to get any closer than eight points (65-55) and ECU went on to win by a score of 68-59.

In the game, ECU made 10 three-point field goals and out-rebounded Houston 50-46. Additionally the Pirates’ bench outscored the Cougars’ non-starters 23-8.

Porsche Landry led the Cougars with 19 points and 10 rebounds for a double-double, while adding four assists and one steal. Yasmeen Thompson posted 14 points, nine boards, three blocks and one steal, while Marche’ Amerson recorded 11 points and seven rebounds.

ECU looks to push its winning streak to six games when it takes on UAB on Sunday, February 10, at 3 p.m. (ET) in Birmingham, Ala. Live stats will be available on ECUPirates.com.
