Loss No Hindrance to ECU's Climb Up the Polls

East Carolina fell from the unbeaten ranks last week, but it didn't slow the Pirates' steady upward trek in all three of the major weekly collegiate baseball rankings.

ECU, 13-1 after a week in which it lost on the road to Virginia Commonwealth before returning home to sweep a three-game series from Pace, moved up to No. 18 in both the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper Poll and the BaseballAmerica Rankings.

Last week, the Pirates were 22nd on the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper list and were ranked 20th by BaseballAmerica. In the preseason, ECU was pegged at No. 29 by the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper and was unranked by BaseballAmerica.

After debuting last week for the first time this season in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches' Poll at No. 23, the Pirates have edged up to 22nd in that poll.

Six C-USA, Carolinas Teams Show Up in Rankings

Fellow Conference USA members joining the Pirates in the rankings are Houston (8th, 12th and 13th in the BaseballAmerica, Collegiate Baseball Newspaper and ESPN/USA Today polls, respectively) and Tulane (21st, 26th and 23rd).

Other Carolinas teams in the rankings are Clemson (2nd, 2nd and 2nd), South Carolina (6th, 4th and 5th) and Wake Forest (13th, 11th and 12th).

The new rankings were released Monday and were based on results of games through Sunday, March 10.
