In less than two weeks Joe Dooley’s second stint as ECU men’s basketball coach will begin. The Pirates open the season when they host Delaware State on Tuesday, Nov. 6 at Minges Coliseum. 

On Thursday afternoon, Dooley and select players met with members of the media to preview the upcoming season. The Pirate roster features three seniors, but only Isaac Fleming played serious minutes last season. 

ECU returns two of it’s top three scorers from a year ago in Fleming and sophomore Shawn Williams. The Pirates finished 10-20 (4-14 AAC) last season.
