Senior forward Maurice Kemp produced 21 points and 11 rebounds and junior forward Robert Sampson had 17 points and a career-high 18 rebounds to help East Carolina defeat cross-state foe Appalachian State 82-72 Tuesday night in Greenville.

Kemp's output marked the third time in four games he has paced the Pirates offensively.

Senior point guard Miguel Paul contributed additional firepower against the Mountaineers, scoring 14 points while dealing 6 assists.

ASU established a 4-0 lead out of the gates on a pair of baskets by sophomore swingman Jay Canty, but ECU took a 7-6 lead 3:12 into the game on a layup by junior forward Ty Armstrong and managed to maintain the advantage the rest of the way against the Mountaineers' repeated challenges.

Canty had 25 points and senior forward Nathan Healy added 24 points and 10 rebounds for Appalachian State.

The Pirates led at the half 38-33.

The win gave ECU its first 4-0 season start in ten years.

The Pirates hit the road for a pair of games next week, facing Georgia State on Tuesday and future Conference USA member Charlotte on Saturday.
