East Carolina went on a 36-19 tear over the game's final 15:25 to overcome a 14-point deficit and remain unbeaten with a 76-73 victory over UNC-Greensboro Friday night in Greenville.

Miguel Paul made his season debut a notable one after serving a two-game suspension. The senior point guard, in his second year wearing the purple and gold after beginning his collegiate career at Missouri, scored 24 points to help ECU get off to its first 3-0 start in four years.

Senior forward Maurice Kemp, who paced the Pirates' scoring in the first two outings, continued his offensive proficiency with 16 points while adding 10 rebounds to boot.

Junior guard Akeem Richmond also produced 16 points, all in the second half. A transfer from Rhode Island, Richmond gave a spark to the Pirates and energized the boisterous crowd of 4,946 by drilling 4 of 6 three-point shots in the final frame.

Promising freshman forward Marshall Guilmette was a perfect 4-of-4 from the floor and had 10 points to round out the team's double-figure scoring.

Junior swingman Trevis Simpson scored 19 points, senior guard Korey Van Dussen had 18 and freshman forward Kayel Locke contributed 14 for the 1-2 Spartans.

Sixteen of Van Dussen's points came in the first half when he made 6-of-7 field goal attempts and knocked in 4-of-4 three-point tries to help UNCG build a 39-31 lead at intermission.

The Pirates end their four-game home stand Tuesday with a matchup against Appalachian State.
