Senior forward Maurice Kemp, senior guard Miguel Paul and junior forward Robert Sampson teamed up for 54 points to lead East Carolina to a 74-63 victory over Norfolk State Saturday night in Greenville.

Kemp had a season-high 23 points on 9-of-13 shooting from the floor and 4-of-4 from the line to help the Pirates bounce back from a pre-Christmas road loss to Massachusetts and improve to 8-3 on the season.

Paul converted 11 of 12 charity shots in compiling 19 points, dishing out 8 assists in the process. Sampson had 12 points and a game-high 9 rebounds.

Junior guard Pendarvis Williams scored 15 points and freshman forward Rashid Gaston added 12 to pace the Spartans. The loss was NSU's fourth straight, all on the road.

ECU, which built a 38-31 halftime margin, led from start to finish, but the Spartans stayed within a run of wiping out the advantage throughout the game.

The Pirates remain at home this week for matchups with Campbell (Wednesday, 7 p.m.) and N.C. Wesleyan (Saturday, 5 p.m.) before hitting the road to launch the Conference USA slate at Memphis on Wednesday, Jan. 9.
