East Carolina (1-1) charged back from a seven-point halftime deficit to tie the game in regulation, but for the second year in a row lost to Richmond (2-2) in overtime Tuesday night in Greenville.

A three-point attempt by ECU senior guard Darrell Jenkins missed the mark with seven seconds left in the extra frame. The Spiders inherited possession when the ball went out of bounds and held on for a 67-65 victory.

Richmond had gained the lead for good on a three-pointer by freshman forward Justin Harper and a pair of free throws by freshman guard Kevin Anderson.

ECU sophomore forward Gabe Blair scored 19 points and led all rebounders with 12. Blair made 5 of 10 from the floor and converted 9 of 13 free throws in compiling the double-double.

Junior guard James Legan, a JC transfer, was the only other Pirate in double figures with 10 points in only 19 minutes.

Sophomore center Dan Geriot's 22 points and 10 rebounds paced Richmond, which also got 15 points from senior forward Oumar Sylla.

After trailing throughout the first half, ECU outscored the Spiders 23-4 coming out of intermission to build a 10-point lead before the momentum swung back to Richmond.

Last season, the Spiders defeated the Pirates 71-67 in overtime in Richmond.

East Carolina will host Liberty on Saturday at 7 p.m.
