No. 5 Wichita State starts slow, then romps vs. East Carolina

NFL looking into Raiders-Gruden hiring

Rui Hachimura added 20 points to help the 15-3 Bulldogs improve to 5-0 in the West Coast Conference. "I've never been part of a team that gave up 100 points".

There were no shocks to be had for poor-shooting East Carolina on Thursday night, as the Pirates were blistered by No. 5 Wichita State in Minges Coliseum, 95-60.

McDuffie led the Shockers in scoring and rebounding previous year but missed the first 11 games of this season recovering from a stress fracture in his left foot.

"I was exhausted like once", McDuffie said after playing 20 minutes off the bench for the second straight game. On Thursday, he made 4 of 7 shots and 4 of 5 free throws with three rebounds, two assists and a steal against the Pirates (7-9, 1-4). Following Nurger in the scoring column was Shaquille Morris (12 points) and Markis McDuffie (12 points). Marshall said there is no minutes restrictions on McDuffie at this point. "It's just a matter of how well he plays". He's such a dynamic talent with the ability to shoot the ball, drive the ball, rebound it.

Wichita State trailed 14-9 early after a 3-for-12 shooting start, but the Shockers quickly settled in to take complete control.

Wichita State now has a half-game lead in the standings for first in The American.

Whiting Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: WLL)
It turned negative, as 61 investors sold WLL shares while 64 reduced holdings. 81 funds opened positions while 368 raised stakes. The oil and gas exploration company reported ($0.56) EPS for the quarter, beating the consensus estimate of ($0.80) by $0.24.

Marcquise Reed scored 17 points, Donte Grantham added 16 and Mark Donnal finished with a season-high 13 for Clemson (14-2, 3-1), which had its 10-game winning streak end.

"We were able to withstand that initial push from them and continue to play basketball and continue to fight", Perry told the team's website after the loss to CT.

The East Carolina Pirates (7-8) have lost three of their last four games including a 70-65 defeat to CT in which B.J. Tyson scored 21 points in 9 for 18 shooting from the field.

"We've seen the elite of the elite in this league, and it's a learning experience for our guys", interim ECU head coach Michael Perry said, calling Wichita the best team he has seen since the Pirates joined the American. But after that 14-9 opening, little went right as ECU fell to 5-5 under Perry.

"We didn't have any kind of fight or resolve with our team, and as a coaching staff we've got to figure this thing out", Haith added. They really competed at a high level at which they needed to win. That included 21 of 30 (70 percent) after halftime with the outcome long since decided. They've been hot from beyond the 3-point arc and are averaging 9.8 3-pointers per game.

The Ducks dominated the paint, outscoring Arizona State 38-16 inside and scoring 15 second-chance points on 15 offensive rebounds.

Marshall said that when preparing for the Pirates he focused only on recent games with Perry running the show and noticed East Carolina's effort.
